Zoom released their new HD video camera for musicians, live streamers, and home production prosumers this week at the NAMM show. Here are some details about this new camera!
Take It Wherever You Go
The Q4 can act as a live web camera or USB microphone, making it as useful for reporting breaking news in the field as it is for personal blogs or conducting interviews. Use it handheld or mount it to any standard tripod or three prong action camera mount for a wide range of interesting angles.
Unparalleled Audio Quality
The Q4’s X/Y microphone and support for high-resolution audio assure full fidelity without compromise, and it’s also compatible with a wide array of audio software products that allow you to further enhance your creativity. Connect to your computer or iPad (using an Apple Camera Connection Kit), select your preferred editing or streaming software, and be heard.
Capture Shots From A Better Perspective
Compact, lightweight, and mountable on any standard tripod or three prong action camera mount, the Q4 is optimized to go where the action is. It offers a full-color LCD which can be freely rotated for self-shooting or detached for increased portability and extended battery life. Sensing options allow the Q4 to automatically adapt to various lighting situations, and there are selectable viewing angles too. The Q4 is also able to send digital data to DAWs or video editors such as iMovie or Final Cut Pro.
