The world needs listeners and viewers, but it belongs to the creators. The Zoom Q4 is all about bringing 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.
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.
Aspire To Inspire
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.
Every Video Tells a Story
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.
Be In The Moment
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.
High-Resolution Audio Meets High-Definition Video
Zoom products have long set the gold standard for portable audio. The Q4 redefines the state of the art in portable video.
It's All About The Experience
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.
Stunning Stereo Wherever You Go
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. Advanced features such as the automatic/manual gain control and built-in low-cut filter, and the supplied windscreen allow you to capture great stereo sound both indoors and outdoors.
Maximize Your Creative Output
The Q4's mic/line level input and multiple outputs (micro HDMI, mini USB, and line-level/headphone jack with dedicated volume control) allows it to be easily interconnected with other audio and video equipment for full-on production capability.
Create The Best Video You've Ever Heard
Compelling imagery. Stunning sound. Whether you're a musician, a videographer, a broadcast journalist or a video blogger, the Q4 allows you to take your creativity to the next level.
Bring Your Audience Onstage
Musicians know that the best view is front stage, center. With the Q4, you can bring your audience right onstage with you, turning spectators into virtual participants. Craft music videos with startling realism, relive great performances over and over again, capture not just the sights and sounds but the complete experience.
