The Zoom Q8n-4K is designed to capture professional-grade audio with 4K video in a versatile, all-in-one handy recorder. It is the perfect video production and livestreaming solution for today’s musicians, filmmakers, podcasters and more.
The Q8n-4K is designed for creators to showcase your best sound and look, elevating your videos with four audio tracks, along with 4K UHD video.
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.
With the included X/Y mic capsule and two XLR inputs, you can capture up to four tracks of simultaneous, crystal-clear audio.
IN THE MIX
Capture every instrument and voice of your band by running the main outputs of a mixing board right to your Q8n-4K.
Take advantage of the Q8n-4K’s compact size, vivid imagery, and high-quality audio, recording your genuine look and sound during live or studio performances.
EASY ON THE EYES
Record in 4K resolution at 30fps. With the F2.8/150º wide-angle lens, five field of view (FOV) settings, and brightness adjustments, the Q8n-4K produces vivid video quality at every shoot.
Easily connect via USB to your computer and stream to your favorite platforms.
SET THE SCENE
Get the right look in any setting using Scene presets for Indoor, Outdoor, Nighttime and Concert Lighting. Alternatively, the Auto setting will optimize lighting based on your environment.
Use the stereo headphone output jack and on-screen level meters to monitor your sound.
The Q8n-4K is compact and mobile, perfect for run-and-gun shoots while operating handheld or with a gimbal.
Be the star of your own production. Use the flip-out screen to view yourself while operating the Q8n-4K.
POWER YOUR SHOOTS
Choose the right power source for your shoot by using the camera’s rechargeable Li-ion battery, charge via USB or with an optional AC adapter, all while recording to a mini-SD card up to 512GB.
