Capture and create in any conditions with the Zoom Q4. Your choice of video and audio resolutions, depending on the requirements, while it's compact, versatile design means it's perfect for creative use at gigs, on the move or fixed on a tripod.
Zoom Talk About The Q4
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.
The Q4's wide angle X/Y microphone incorporates two matched unidirectional elements—mics that are especially sensitive to signal coming from directly in front, and less sensitive to signal coming from behind or from the sides. The convenient placement of the mic enables the supplied windscreen to be easily attached, allowing you to use the Q4 even on difficult outdoor shoots. In addition, a built-in low-cut filter can be used to reduce low-frequency noise, allowing you to capture great sound both indoors and outdoors.
High Res Audio And Video
Professional videographers understand that the sound is as important as the scene. It’s not enough to capture the sound of the ocean; you have to be able to feel the water bubbling beneath your feet. The Q4 delivers exactly that kind of experience. Its unique blend of high-resolution 24-bit/96k audio with high-definition 1080p video means never having to compromise on quality.
Go Your Own Way
The Q4’s versatile and flexible design challenges video creators to push themselves to the limit. Compact yet compatible with standard tripod and three prong action camera mounts, the Q4 can go anywhere. Its wide-angle lens and choice of video formats and frame rates allow the Q4 to record sharp, detailed images in any situation, and its full-color rotating LCD—which can be detached during shooting for portability and extended battery life—provides a clear preview of each moment you capture.
Compact, lightweight, and mountable on any standard tripod or three prong action camera mount, the Q4 is optimized to go where the action is. It offers a full-color LCD which can be freely rotated for self-shooting or detached for increased portability and extended battery life. Sensing options allow the Q4 to automatically adapt to various lighting situations, and there are selectable viewing angles too. The Q4 is also able to send digital data to DAWs or video editors such as iMovie or Final Cut Pro.
