For musicians looking for an ultimate camera option, Zoom offers the Q2n Handy Video Recorder. Video now plays an important role in helping you reach a wider fan base. It’s a digital world and that means an inspiring performance can take the Internet by storm. But you can’t capture your music with just any camera. You need one that records incredible audio.

NOTE: Some gear shown in photos above is sold separately. For more information on this and other products, please contact your Sales Pro. 

The Zoom Q2n gives you a fast and easy way to create HD videos with high-impact audio. The built-in X/Y microphones capture sound with beautiful stereo imaging. And the 160° wide-angle lens excels in an array of lighting conditions—whether you’re filming at home, in a rehearsal space, or at a club. With the Q2n in hand, you can finally make videos that sound as great as they look—at a price more affordable than ever. The reason the Q2n sounds great? This portable camera is packed with high-resolution 24-bit/96 kHz audio that delivers studio-quality recording, no matter where you’re filming.  And the camera’s built-in X/Y microphones can handle sound pressure levels up to 120 dB SPL, for distortion-free recording.

And if looks are as important as sound, Zoom's Q2n has Ten "Scene" presets allow you to record in a wide range of environments, including low-light locations where this unit is designed to thrive. The presets range from "Concert Light" — which automatically adjusts for changing lighting conditions — to "Concert Lo-Lit" for dimly lit rooms. And there are scene settings tailored specifically for filming in jazz clubs and rehearsal studios, as well as outdoors.

The Q2n also features a 160° wide-angle lens that captures stunning video. And it records in 720p or 1080p HD resolution, using the same 24 fps or 30 fps frame rate used in film. An F2.0 aperture makes the Q2n perfect for musicians who perform in a wide variety of lighting environments. Capture the full band or focus on an individual performer using five field of view (FOV) settings. Plus, a color LCD screen makes it easy to create the perfect shot or review your videos.
