Zoom Q8 portable Video recorder

The Zoom Q8 is the ultimate portable video recorder for film makers and musicians wanting amazing image quality and audio recordings.

The Q8 marries high-definition video with high-resolution audio, making it the perfect camera for music and video creators everywhere.

Its 160 degree wide-angle lens and digital zoom ensure that you’ll always capture the complete picture.

Combine that with ZOOM’s groundbreaking interchangeable mic capsule system and two XLR/TRS combo inputs for a world of options.

The Q8 comes with its own specially designed detachable X/Y microphone, yet it’s compatible with most Zoom microphone capsules.

If you already use an H5 or H6, you can swap their capsules with the Q8 too.*

The Q8 offers a large full-colour LCD touchscreen for ease of use, along with a wealth of advanced features.

Dual combo XLR/TRS inputs allow the connection of external microphones 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-degree wide-angle lens and flexible mounting options mean that you can shoot high-def 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 favourite streaming or editing software.
