The 4K Camera for your Look and Sound

The Zoom Q8n-4K is designed to capture professional-grade audio with 4K video in a versatile, all-in-one handy recorder. The Q8n-4K gives you the same high-quality audio formats as Zoom's dedicated audio recorders. It is the perfect video production and livestreaming solution for today's musicians, filmmakers, podcasters and more.

• Video Production beyond the limits of a Smartphone - The Q8n-4K is designed for creators to showcase their best sound and look, elevating your videos with four audio tracks, along with 4K UHD video.
Light weight, light on the wallet - Compared to a mirrorless or DSLR, this camera's size is meant to seamlessly fit into your production while its price ensures that it fits into your budget.
4-Track minded - With the Zoom X/Y mic capsule and two XLR inputs, you can capture up to four tracks of simultaneous, crystal-clear audio.
In the Mix - Capture every instrument and voice of your band's performances by running the main outputs of a mixing board right to your Q8n-4K.

• Capturing Performances - Take advantage of the Q8n-4K's compact size, vivid imagery, and high-quality audio, recording your genuine look and sound during live or studio performances.
• Interchangeable Mic Capsules
• Record in 4K resolution at 30fps. With the F2.8/150° wide-angle lens, five field of view (FOV) settings, and brightness adjustments, the Q8n-4K produces vivid video quality at every shoot.
• Easily connect via USB to your computer and stream to your favourite platforms.
• Get the right look in any setting using Scene presets for Indoor, Outdoor, Nighttime and Concert Lighting. Alternatively, the Auto setting will optimize lighting based on your environment.
• Use the stereo headphone output jack and on-screen level meters to monitor your sound.
• The Q8n-4K is compact and mobile, perfect for run-and-gun shoots while operating handheld or with a gimble.
• Selfie Mode - Be the star of your own production. Use the flip-out screen to view yourself while operating the Q8n-4K.
• Choose the right power source for your shoot environment by using the camera's rechargeable Li-ion battery, charge via USB or with an optional AC adapter, all while recording to a mini-SD card up to 512GB.

Performance Warranty Banner

Protect your investment with the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty

A warranty can be a very important factor when making a buying decision. Because repairs can be very expensive in terms of parts and labour costs, manufacturers usually only provide one year limited warranties that generally only cover items that malfunction due to a manufacturer’s defect. With an important purchase such as a musical
instrument or piece of studio gear, however, many people want to have the peace of mind in knowing that their investment will be protected should the product no longer be performing at 100%.

Because of this, Long & McQuade provides our customers with a FREE one-year Performance Warranty on most of our products. The Long & McQuade Performance Warranty supplements the manufacturer’s warranty to ensure that our customers receive complete “no hassle” warranty coverage within their first year.

How does the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty differ from most manufacturers' warranties?
  • Performance Guarantee: Normal wear and tear is covered, so your product will be performing as well as the day you purchased it for the entire duration of the coverage. Band and Orchestral Performance Warranty does not include replacing pads or cleaning for woodwind instruments, unless deemed necessary by our repair staff. Ultrasonic cleaning for brass instruments will be provided if deemed necessary by our repair staff, but is not routinely offered under the Performance Warranty.
  • Product Replacement: If your product cannot be fixed or costs too much to fix, we will replace it with the equivalent model for no additional charge. If this is not possible, a full refund will be provided.
  • No Lemon Policy: Your product will be replaced should the same problem occur multiple times.
  • Convenient: Easy drop off and pick up of the product at any Long & McQuade location.
  • Guitar Setup: Guitars purchased at Long & McQuade come with 1 free setup, to be redeemed within 1 year for new guitars and 90 days for used guitars.
  • Loaners Available: A loaner product may be given while the product is being repaired.
  • Power Surge Protection: Your product is covered even if damaged from a power surge.
  • Accessory Coverage: Any peripheral devices or accessories that come with your product (i.e. foot pedal, case) are also covered.
  • Commercial Use Coverage: Music and recording professionals who purchase gear for “heavy-use” commercial purposes will still be covered.

Long & McQuade reserves the right to restrict the purchase of additional years of Performance Warranty. Used products come with a 3-month Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Some products (i.e. computers, software, cymbals and other items) are covered only by the manufacturer‘s warranty. Consumables (i.e. strings, reeds, drum sticks, batteries, tubes, cross faders) are excluded as they are designed to be replaced. Cosmetic Damage, Accidental Damage, or problems caused by Humidity or Temperature Issues are not covered. Speakers damaged by overpowering are generally not covered. Our coverage does not provide compensation for loss of use. As of June 2018 the Performance Warranty is no longer transferable. The warranty is only valid in Canada.

Purchasing additional years of coverage

Some manufacturers provide warranties for longer than 1 year; however, these are usually limited warranties that do not provide the same coverage as the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Customers interested in more complete and convenient (but not necessarily longer) coverage are still able to purchase additional years of the Performance Warranty.

If you are interested in receiving this coverage for longer than one year, you have the option of purchasing additional years of the Performance Warranty. The pricing is as follows:

  • NEW products: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.
  • USED products: 4% of the current new selling price to increase the warranty from 3 months to 1 year. 4% for each additional year.
  • GUITARS: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year. $45 maximum. An additional free setup is not included with additional purchased years of Performance Warranty.
  • BAND and ORCHESTRAL instruments: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.
