Zoom Q8 HD Video and 4-Track Audio Recorder - Li-Ion

by ZOOM
$350.99

The ZOOM Q8 HD Video/4-Track Audio Recorder marries HD video with Hi-Res audio, making it the perfect camera for music and video creators everywhere.

Complete Compatibility For Total Versatility
The Q8 comes with its own specially designed detachable X/Y mic, yet it's compatible with most Zoom mic capsules. If you already use an H5 or H6, you can swap their capsules with the Q8 too.*

*EXH-6 TRS/XLR Combo Capsule is not compatible with the Q8.

The Total Package: Easy To Use & Full-Featured
The Q8 offers a large full-color LCD touchscreen for ease of use, along with a wealth of advanced features. Dual combo XLR/TRS inputs allow the connection of external mics and line-level sources, and a built-in speaker and stereo Headphone/Line Out jack provide audio monitoring; there's even an HDMI output for video monitoring.

Its high-quality 160° wide-angle lens and flexible mounting options mean that you can shoot HD video anywhere you go. Plus there's a USB output that allows the Q8 to be interconnected with your computer so you can use it with your favorite streaming or editing software.

Your Go-To Tool
Whether you're a musician, indie filmmaker, podcaster, blogger, teacher, or video pro, you'll find the Q8 to be the perfect creative companion.

Whatever you create, wherever your imagination takes you, you've never seen - or heard - anything like it.
