Compelling imagery. Stunning sound.
Whether you're a musician, a videographer, a broadcast journalist, or a video blogger, the Zoom Q4 allows you to take your creativity to the next level. The Q4 combines high-definition video with high-resolution audio. Compact and lightweight yet full-featured, the Q4 provides everything you need to shoot amazing videos with incredible sound. That means you'll never have to compromise on creativity.
The sound is the scene
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. With support for high-resolution audio – up to 24-bit / 96 kHz – Q4 assures superior sound without compromise. Use the Q4 with your favorite DAW or editing software to further enhance your creativity. You've never heard a video camera sound this good!
Take it to the limit
The Q4’s versatile design and powerful feature set allows video creators to push the envelope. Its wide-angle lens and choice of video formats and frame rates allow the Q4 to record sharp, detailed images in any lighting environment, 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.
Look At The World A Little Differently
Compact, lightweight and compatible with both standard tripod and three-prong action camera mounts, you can use the Q4 anywhere your creative muse takes you. Mount it to a mic stand, clamp it to a guitar, place it anywhere onstage or in the rehearsal room. There's nothing like a change of perspective to liven up your creations.
The Q4's LCD and built-in speaker allows instant monitoring of your recordings, but it also offers additional flexibility through its various connectors: a stereo 1/8" Mic/Line In jack, a stereo 1/8" Line Out/Headphone jack, a mini-HDMI video output, and a USB port. Make use of a wide range of devices to boost your production capabilities: connect, stream, and share.
Remarkable. Reliable. Rechargeable.
All you need to power the Q4 is the single supplied lithium-ion (Li-Ion) battery, which can be recharged with the use of an optional AC adapter or by connecting the Q4 to your computer via USB. Battery life is approximately three hours when shooting at 720p/30fps, or two hours when shooting high-definition 1080/30fps video, giving you the freedom to leave the studio behind and explore the world around you.
Remarkable. Reliable. Rechargeable.
The Q4 records directly to SDXC cards up to 128GB in a variety of video and audio file formats, making it fully adaptable for your needs. The three HD settings provide maximum video quality while the two WVGA options can be used to conserve SD card space. The Q4 supports two audio file formats: WAV, up to 24-bit/96k, for uncompressed full fidelity sound, or AAC to conserve space.
