Upgrade your audio and visuals

Elevate the quality of your productions and ditch the smartphone camera and audio. The Q8n-4K is designed for creators to showcase their talent with the best visual and audio quality possible to help reinforce your brand. With 4K video, if you're an online tutor, streamer, musician or any other content creator, you will be able to capture your image source in full ultra-high definition to enhance the immersion of your viewers. Recording in 4K at 30FPS gives your visuals a smooth playback, eliminating any pitfalls of low frame rates that can cause jittering and unbalanced movement. Employing an F2.8/150-degree wide-angle lens with five fields of view settings, brightness adjustments and more, you can customise your image settings to the conditions and source you're looking to film.

Not only are you presented with ultra-high-definition video, but the Zoom Q8n-4K also serves to improve your audio as well. Coming with an integrated X/Y microphone and two XLR inputs, you can capture up to four tracks of crystal clear audio in full 24-bit / 96kHz resolution. For those that own other Zoom microphone capsules, the Q8n-4K microphone capsule is interchangeable, allowing you to swap out which microphone you use for certain situations.

Achieving high-quality audio recordings is simple with the Zoom Q8n-4K. Five integrated effects allow you to enhance any audio recording to a professional standard without needing any additional equipment or processing, saving you time when it matters most. Noise gates, compressors, limiters, de-essers and levellers are all available to ensure your audio doesn't peak with unwanted digital distortion, letting your viewers enjoy a clean and balanced sound. For field recording situations, a built-in low-cut allows you to remove any unwanted low-end that may occur from atmospheric noises. Always get the best sound for your performance with the Zoom Q8n-4K.

Versatile built-in USB

The built-in USB port enables live streaming and allows the Q8n-4K to be used as a webcam or USB microphone - perfect for podcasts. It also can connect with other equipment and computer software for post-production editing.

Independent filmmaking

Compared to a mirrorless or DSLR, this camera’s size is meant to seamlessly fit into your production while its price ensures that it fits into your budget. The Q8n-4K is compact and mobile, perfect for run-and-gun shoots while operating handheld or with a gimble. What's more is that you can be your own director, using the LCD flip-screen, you can shoot in selfie-mode to view your product as you are recording! This will avoid needing to re-shoot scenes and save you time in your post-production, getting your content online quicker.

For remote filming, the Q8n-4K offers flexible powering options, either via the integrated rechargeable battery or via an external AC adapter. Using the rechargeable battery, you can enjoy filming for up to 1.5 hours even at the highest audio and visual settings!
