In stock

Zoom have a superb reputation for both high quality audio devices and portable video recorders. The Q8 brings those worlds together in a high definition handheld video recorder. The 160 degree wide angle lens with digital zoom makes you sure catch everything, while the interchangeable mic capsules and audio I/O means you're ready for every eventuality. Crisp picture, stellar audio, in every situation with a camera that weighs less than 500g!

Show full description »

Quite often for cameras of this size the audio becomes a poor relation to the video. However thanks to Zoom's continuous development you get the same quality on the Q8 as you will find on their dedicated digital audio recorders. Combine that with Combo XLR/Jack inputs for external sources and you've got a complete package.

Musicians, Vloggers, Filmmakers Get Pro Video

At this price and quality the Q8 hits the sweet spot for professionals and enthusiasts alike. Musicians will appreciate the realistic sound capture and ability to take audio straight from a desk into the XLR inputs, while filmmakers will find it portable, HD and compatible with tripods as well as three-prong action camera mounts. Indeed with HD video quality and 24bit/96KHz audio the Q8 is suitable for any modern media, where sound and audio are increasingly becoming inseparable. From bloggers who need a video focus for their page to teachers who want to capture every element of a performance for analysis.

Price Matching

Dolphin Music brings you the best music gear at the best price. We are committed to superior customer service and have extensive product knowledge. However, in today’s market we may not always be aware of all the price fluctuations of the products we sell. So, we offer competitive price matching.

Please fill in the following form to request a price match.

What prices we will match?

We will compare prices for new, direct from manufacturer items, excluding any add-ons, options, or other special features which may affect price.

The item must be new and must be the exact same make and model (ie, the same size, version, etc.).

Since our postage charges are lower than most of the shops, the comparison price must be a "delivered cost" to the consumer.

If we are unable to verify the previous condition, we will notify you that we require additional information to verify the Price Match request. Our goal is to make this policy simple and hassle-free. We are committed to responding to your requests quickly.

The price you have found must be the Internet Retailer's regular, advertised price for a current and available item. The price you found cannot be a closeout, discontinued, blemished, year-end, inventory reduction, or any other type of advertised sale price.

Price Matching requests may not be combined with any other promotional discounts, specials or other price incentives.

Prices and price sources you have found which do not meet the above criteria or in which incomplete or inaccurate information is provided to us, will not be approved for our Price Match.

Please select your country/region

Choose the region you are shopping from to view products in your currency.

We have temporarily suspended processing of EUR payments, all orders will be charged in GBP.
