Zoom Q4n Handy Video Camera and Media Recorder at a Glance:
Ideal optics and video modes for less-than-ideal lighting:
So while the super-clear 160-degree F2.0 wide-angle lens onboard the Q4n is on par with any action camera on the market, the rest of the system is geared specifically for capturing the best possible video imaging in the unique lighting environments typical in live sound venues. Ten Scene options allow you to instantly adapt the Q4n to your setting, accommodating dimly lit jazz clubs, dazzling rock stages, and sunny outdoor sets alike. There are also five levels of digital zoom onboard, so whether you clip your Handy Video Camera to your guitar with the included 3-prong Action Camera Adapter, set it onstage, or tripod it back at the mixer, you can still frame your shot exactly how you like.
The professional sound quality we expect from Zoom:
If you've ever suffered through the painful experience of surfing YouTube for footage of local bands, then you know that nothing ruins a visually satisfying video like unacceptable sound quality. Its onboard condenser microphones provide you with wide A-B and focused XY stereo recording options. An impressive 140dB SPL handling makes them ideal for loud live sound venues, and with three Auto Gain settings, you'll get perfect volume levels every time. Even when you don't need video recording, we're sure you'll appreciate the Q4n's standalone audio recording functionality.
Formats and functions for every media application:
When you buy a Zoom Q4n Handy Video Camera, you're not just getting a great recording device - you're opening up a world of cool new opportunities for you and your band. For most bands, the ability to record 1080p HD video with high-quality 320kbps/48kHz AAC audio for online video services such as YouTube and Vimeo is the most important format the Q4n has to offer. However, for more professional video applications, the Q4n's 3M (2.3k) video resolution and full 24-bit/96kHz WAV audio capabilities are sure to be useful. On the flip side, the Q4n's WVGA/720p, 16-bit/48kHz capabilities make it perfectly suited for video chat, webcam use, and live streaming via services such as Ustream Producer. And with up to three hours of battery life and an SDXC recording capacity of up to 128GB, the Q4n is a perfect grab-and-go media recorder.
