Equipped with a bright-apertured 160˚ wide-angle lens, the new Q4n captures sharp, brilliant video — in bright daylight, vivid sunset, or low-lit club — with resolutions up to 2.3k (2304 x 1296 pixels) 3M HD, bitrates of up to 24 Mbps, and frame rates of 30 and 60 fps. It comes with nine "Scene" presets for various environments, as well as four levels of digital zoom. SD cards up to 128 gigabytes can be used for extended recording times, great for capturing performances and podcasting.
The Q4n offers a full-color touchscreen display and rechargeable Li-on battery,
along with a built-in tripod mount and a three-prong adapter for compatibility with
all action camera mounts, including Zoom's optional guitar headstock and
microphone stand mounts. A USB port allows for live streaming and enables the
Q4n to act as a web camera or USB microphone, and an HDMI video output
allows connection to HDTVs.
The Zoom Q4n Handy Video Recorder will be available for $299.99.
