The Zoom 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 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.

NOTE: This is a USED B-STOCK item. It may have cosmetic flaws, but is guaranteed to be in proper working order. Please contact your Sales Pro for more information on this and other products.

Zoom products have long set the gold standard for portable audio. The all-new Q4 redefines the state of the art in portable 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/96kHz audio with high-definition 1080p video means never having to compromise on quality.

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 the 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.

The Q4’s mic/line level input and multiple outputs (micro HDMI, mini USB, and line-level/headphone jack, with dedicated volume control) allow you to easily interconnect it with other audio and video equipment for enhanced functionality.
