• Class Leading Hi-Def Sound and
Vision in one package
Zoom products have long set the gold standard for portable audio. Then
they improve it even more. The updated Q4n further redefines the state of the art in portable audio with video.
Professional videographers understand that the sound is even more
important than the scene. Without sound,
our creations would fall flat. The Q4n delivers audio nuance and quality
that far surpasses that of any other video camera. Its built-in
microphones allow you to create stunning stereo recordings that cover a
wide area while still capturing sound sources in the centre with clarity
With its advanced lighting presets, the Q4n captures our highest-quality
video ever — from bright daylight to a low-lit club to striking sunset.
And with Zoom's superb audio quality, the Q4n provides a combination no
other camera can match.
• From Sunlight to Low-Light
10 “Scene” presets ensure great results in various environments - even
low-light venues like nightclubs. These include “Concert Lighting”

The Q4n shoots in a variety of HD and WVGA formats, from high-resolution
2.3k video (2304 x 1296 pixel/30fps/24Mbps 3M HD) down to compact
30fps/5Mbps WVGA files. It has a greatly improved aperture (F2.0 to be
exact) for bright, brilliant video, as well as a 160˚ wide-angle lens,
and five steps of digital zoom.
• Unrivalled Audio
Zoom has a long-standing reputation for products with outstanding audio,
and the Q4n is no exception.
It supports high-resolution 24-bit / 96 kHz stereo sound and its
built-in microphones can handle high sound pressure levels (up to 140 dB
SPL) for distortion-free recording in even the loudest environments.
You can also connect external mics and other devices via a 1/8" stereo
input jack, and monitor with either headphones or its built-in speaker.
There's also an HDMI video output for connection to HDTVs, making it
easy to view your creations on location or at home.
