HDR (high dynamic range) technology enables you to get correctly exposed shots, keeping your subject lit properly by not exposing for brighter stage lights, etc. The versatile Zoom Q2n-4K records video as MOV files in UHD 4K at 30/25/24 fps, in 1080p at 60/50/30/25/24 fps, or in 720p at 30/25 fps, capturing onto a microSD card up to 256GB at bit rates up to 76 Mb/s.
Its fixed-focus, wide-angle lens has a native 150° FOV and five selectable FOVs for framing wide and close-up shots as you choose. A wide f/2.8 lens aperture produces clear images in dimly lit locations and is augmented by 12 selectable scene modes. Each scene corresponds to a popular performance situation like Concert Light, Jazz Club, Outdoor, Monochrome, and Sepia. An automatic setting chooses the optimal scene mode based on ambient light.
The Q2n-4K's stereo condenser mics are arranged in an X/Y pattern and can handle sound pressure levels up to 120 dB, standing up to even loud rock stages. An audio-only mode records standalone WAV files up to 24-bit/96 kHz. Audio functions include auto gain, a low-cut filter, a 3.5mm line-in/mic-in port, and a headphone output.
A USB port enables you to link the Q2n-4K to your computer or iOS device (may require separately available hardware) for data transfer or for use as a high-quality webcam for streaming over the web using Facebook, YouTube Live, Twitch, or other popular streaming platforms. The HDMI port can be used for viewing your video on a large display monitor.
The Q2n-4K is powered using two AA batteries (included), offering up to 30 minutes of recording time in UHD 4K, one hour in 1080p, or two hours at 720p. Use the bottom 1/4"-20 thread for securing the Q2n-4K to any standard tripod or to mount the separately available BCQ-2n external battery case.
