ZOOM Q2N-4K


LIGHTS. CAMERA. MUSIC.

THE ZOOM Q2N-4K

The 4K Camera for Musicians.


The Zoom Q2n-4K combines unrivaled audio with crisp 4K imaging to completely capture your rehearsals, performances and live streams like never before.

 

 

Look As Good As You Sound

 

POINT

Easily capture your full band or solo act using five field of view (FOV) settings.



AIM

The Q2n-4K’s 150-degree lens and color LCD make it easy to frame the perfect shot.



CAPTURE

At the touch of a button, the Q2n-4K captures premium video recording at up to 4K Ultra HD resolution.

 

 

The Camera for Lights & Action

Stage lights can overexpose your video and can ruin a good take. The Q2n-4K’s high dynamic range (HDR) technology automatically adjusts the exposure, so your lighting effects don’t blow out the shot.

 

 

Setting the Scene

12 ‘Scene’ presets allow you to record your performances in a wide range of environments, including “Jazz Club”, “Concert Light”, “Dance Club”, and “Outdoor”. The Q2n-4K even features an “Auto” scene setting, which will detect your current lighting and select the appropriate balance for you.

 

Live Stream with Great Audio

The Q2n-4K is the ultimate musician’s webcam, able to stream performances live to Facebook, YouTube and more. You can also output the Q2n-4K’s audio to your iOS device* for mobile podcasting and streaming.


*iPad Camera Connection Kit or Lightning to USB Camera Adapter required (sold separately).
