OVERVIEW

Quality camera with excellent audio and lighting presets.

With its ten advanced lighting presets, the Q4n captures Zoom’s highest-quality video ever. From bright daylight to a low-lit club to striking sunset, the Q4n delivers clear, colorful video. And with Zoom's superb audio quality, the Q4n provides a combination no other camera can match.

From Sunlight to Low-Light
Ten presets ensure great results in various environments—even low-light venues like nightclubs. These include “Concert Lighting” (where adjustments are made for lighting conditions that can drastically change) and “Concert-Low Light”, both designed for dimly lit locations. There are also specific Scene settings tailored for shooting at jazz clubs and rehearsal studios, as well as outdoors—even at sunset and at night. Great for gigs.

The Q4n shoots in a variety of HD and WVGA formats, from high-resolution 2.3k video (2304 x 1296 pixel/30fps/24Mbps 3M HD) down to compact 30fps/5Mbps WVGA files. It has a greatly improved aperture (F2.0 to be exact) for bright, brilliant video, as well as a 160˚ wide-angle lens, and five steps of digital zoom.

Unrivaled Audio
Zoom has a long-standing reputation for products with outstanding audio, and the Q4n is no exception. It supports high-resolution 24-bit / 96 kHz stereo sound and its built-in microphones can handle high sound pressure levels (up to 140 dB SPL) for distortion-free recording in even the loudest environments.

You can also connect external mics and other devices via a 1/8" stereo input jack, and monitor with either headphones or its built-in speaker. There's also an HDMI video output for connection to HDTVs, making it easy to view your creations on location or at home.

The Q4n's built-in microphones can be instantly configured for either A/B or X/Y stereo recording.

Fresh Perspectives
Attach the Q4n to your guitar with Zoom's optional GHM-1 guitar headstock mount to get a close-up of your technique, or use the MSM-1 microphone stand mount to place one or more Q4n’s around various areas of the stage and complete the experience. With its included adapter, the Q4n is compatible with all three-prong action camera mounts and accessories, providing limitless possibilities.

The Camera for Creators
Whether it's used for YouTube videos, podcasts, or streaming live performances, you can count on your Q4n to capture bright, clear video with exceptional audio quality.

    Comments about Zoom Q4n Handy Video Recorder:

    Been using this to record every show and rehearsal for the past 6 months. Battery life is decent. I dropped a 64GB card in there and can get about 4 hours of HD video out of it, which is longer than the battery lasts, so we added one of those external phone batteries on the tripod to keep it charged for the full time. Sound is great and the picture quality is better than a phone for sure. Low light situations (like on stage) it works great. Backlighted situations (again, stage) aren't quite as strong, but still reasonably good considering the size. I'm very pleased with this camera.

    Comments about Zoom Q4n Handy Video Recorder:

    I bought this camera to record gigs. I've done three recordings and so far so good. Two of the three gigs were recorded in semi low lighting and was able to do a good job. The sound was had good recording as well for having the camera less than 10 feet from the band. I had the unit set to "concert" and there was no clipping. Definitely worth it for those that like to record their gigs and even rehearsals. You can get the whole band without having to set the camera up 50 miles away like ordinary cameras.

    Comments about Zoom Q4n Handy Video Recorder:

    I got a couple uses out of it. Video quality is decent and sound is good (my Zoom H2 has been working well for years) but then I charged it, took it to a gig and it would not turn on. I charged it again. same thing. It's dead. Since I'm outside the 30 days I have to contact Zoom directly. Can't wait...
