Zoom Q8 - Handheld Video / 4-Track Audio Recorder

The Zoom Q8 takes video recording to a whole new level - with audio recording up to 24bit/96kHz and utilising Zoom’s interchangeable microphone system means you always capture the sound you want for any occasion. Record up to 4 tracks with the 2 XLR/TRS combo jacks located on the rear of the device. The Q8 goes beyond 1080p, offering up to 3M HD (2304x1296p 30FPS) as well as frame rates up to 60 FPS when recording at 720p to capture fast action. The Q8 boasts an f2.0 aperture / 160 degree wide lens to capture everything in your scene with ease. The lower aperture helps in low light situations, and you can adjust the scene to allow for different lighting conditions.
