The Zoom Q4 Handy Video Recorder is all about bringing a new dimension to your music. It combines high-definition video with high-resolution audio, providing everything you need to shoot amazing videos with incredible sound. That means you'll never have to compromise on creativity. Without sound, our creations would fall flat. The Q4 delivers audio nuance and quality that far surpass that of any other video camera. Its built-in X/Y microphone allows you to create stunning stereo recordings that cover a wide area while still capturing sound sources in the center with clarity and definition.

Use the Q4 to stream your performance, record on the road, or produce a high-quality demo, complete with video footage. Capture live concerts, auditions and band rehearsals with unique points of view. Create detailed video lessons — the Q4 is perfect for showing fingerings, bowings, and other playing techniques. Whatever your creative goal, the Q4 can help you achieve it. Tackle even the most challenging projects with ease, and let them live up to their full potential. Whatever the application — from YouTube video to indie film, music video to tutorial, video blog to streamed webcast — you can count on your Q4 to deliver powerful and evocative content.

The Q4’s ultra-compact size and portability make it ideal for conducting video interviews and capturing late-breaking news or documentary footage in the field. In addition, a wide range of compatible mounts makes it easy to shoot from any angle, giving your broadcasts a creative edge that other cameras simply cannot deliver.

Features:
  • Full HD 1080p Recording - The Q4 captures video using the H.264 video codec, and offers Full HD 1920x1080 video at 30fps, as well as 720p video at 30 or 60fps. In addition, you can also choose to record standard definition WVGA formats at 30 or 60fps when smaller file sizes are needed.
  • 2.0" Detachable LCD Screen Unit - The 2.0" LCD screen can be rotated to be viewed from a variety of angles. When the screen is positioned to face the front of the camera, the image rotates so it is right side up. This is useful when recording videos of yourself playing. The LCD screen unit can also be detached, making the camcorder even more compact.
  • Pop-Up X/Y Condenser Microphone - The wide 120° pop-up X/Y condenser microphone give you professional-quality audio, making the Zoom Q4 ideal for shooting any kind of musical performance and sharing it with the world. The microphone features a maximum sound pressure input of 130 dB SPL, and an input gain of +7 to +47 dB.
  • Outboard Audio Controls - Outboard audio controls let you quickly adjust and fine-tune your audio settings. Select between Auto and Manual Gain control, enable the low cut filter, and adjust volume.
  • Use as a Webcam - Connect the Q4 to your computer via a USB cable to use it as a high-quality video and audio streaming webcam. The recorder can simultaneously transmit video of up to 720p and 48kHz/16-bit quality PCM audio to the computer. If the streaming application does not have a lip sync function, you can use the volume +/- keys to set the audio delay time so that it matches the timing of the video.
  • Lighting Settings - Choose among three different lighting settings. For most situations, choosing "Auto" will give you the best, clearest results, as it adjusts lighting conditions automatically. You can also select "Concert Lighting", which is better suited for live shows, concerts, and other situations with bright lights. Choose "Night" for maximizing results when recording at night or in dark environments.
  • Combo Line In / Stereo Input Jack - Use an external microphone or audio equipment by connecting them to the external stereo input jack. The jack can be activated to provide plug-in power to external microphones. When an external device is connected to the external input jack, the built-in X/Y microphone is disabled.
  • Compatible with 3-Prong Action Camera Mount - In addition to a 1/4"-20 threaded hole, the Zoom Q4 also features the same mount as GoPro cameras, making it compatible with a wide range of 3-prong action camera mounts. Attach the camera to a mic stand, clamp it to a guitar, or place it anywhere onstage or in the rehearsal room.

James S. from Anaheim, CA on May 09, 2017:
I bought this camera for my blind son who loves to record trains and planes. As audio is key, I chose the Q4. The camera is perfect in so many ways for him. The Q4 is easy to use, easy to navigate the menus once instructed on how many times to hit which key to perform what function. The audio quality is awesome as well as the video quality when he wants to show the family his days adventures on our LCD.
