Manufacturer's ID: Zoom Q8

What we say:

At A Glance:

The Zoom Q8 is a high-definition video camera that is host to several features that assist professional capture of audio. With a beautiful interchangeable stereo mic, plus two combination inputs, an HDMI output and USB connectivity, Q8 can give you professional results for filming, live streaming and video lessons.

Features We Love:

High Definition video

Q8 features a 160° wide camera lens that lets you fit a lot in your frame. This is ideal for drum lessons where it can be hard to fit a whole kit in shot with the camera being in close proximity. Plus with beautiful video captured in 3M HD at 2304 x 1296 pixels, you will be filming at a professional level.

Pro-Audio

The Q8 has definitely been designed with musicians in mind, with 4 tracks recorded in WAV at 24 bit, you've got a high-quality product as soon as you hit record. Plus, you also have the option to load the individual audio files into your DAW to be compressed and mixed to your preference.

Stereo Microphone

The included stereo microphone captures a detailed stereo image, this is great for recording drums or more than one musician, where the stereo placement will perfectly reflect your video. The mic features Zoom's proprietary connection that is compatible with other Zoom microphones, so if your shoot requires a shotgun or mid-side mic, they're easy to swap and mount on the camera.

Combination Inputs

In addition to the stereo microphone, you get two combination inputs, these are compatible with XLR and TRS connections and are capable of providing Phantom Power. There are endless possibilities with what you could do with this set-up, but it could include video piano lessons, using the stereo mic for talking and directly connecting your digital piano to the combi inputs, or connecting two handheld mics to the camera for conducting interviews.

As a Webcam

Not only can the Q8 work as a camcorder, it can also operate as a webcam and is ideal for conducting video lessons or for streaming to Twitch and other platforms. Plus as a high-quality camera and multitrack audio interface in one, it's an ideal option for streaming musicians who require more than one input.

As an Audio Recorder

It's also possible to use the Q8 just for recording audio, if you're using another camera set-up, you can use the Q8 as your multitrack audio recorder.

HDMI Output

The built-in micro HDMI port output lets you connect the Q8 to your monitor or TV so you can play back what you've recorded. It's also possible to use this port with your video capture card for streaming.

Highlights:

  • High-quality video and audio
  • 4 channel multitrack audio
  • A versatile camera that's great for video lessons
