Thanks, Earl. I believe you are right that it is a “combination of the two.” Not in the sense that there is anything wrong with either mic or Zoom on their own, but from what I’ve read in a few other forums is that the Zoom doesn’t have enough gain in its pre amp. So I guess one would need either a really sensitive shotgun mic, or to feed the mic into a separate pre-amp, and then the pre-amp into the Zoom. Definitely not what I wanted to hear. Oh well. I appreciate your response!
