The Zoom Q2n gives you a fast and easy way to create HD videos with high-impact audio. High-resolution 24-bit/96 kHz audio delivers studio-quality recording, no matter where you're filming. And the camera's built-in X/Y microphones can handle sound pressure levels up to 120 dB SPL, for distortion-free recording. The 160-degree wide-angle lens excels in an array of lighting conditions - whether you're filming at home, in a rehearsal space, or at a club.

Since the Q2n can handle high sound pressure levels, it records loud music without distortion or clipping. Famed drummer Dave Weckl relies on his Q2n to capture full and beautifully balanced snare, bass, tom, and cymbal detail. The Q2n is also capable of recording audio only. Simply use the 'Camera Off' setting to capture demos or live performances in stereo sound using the built-in X/Y mics.

Ten "Scene" presets allow you to record in a wide range of environments, including low-light locations where the Q2n is designed to thrive. The presets range from "Concert Light" - which automatically adjusts for changing lighting conditions - to "Concert Lo-Lit" for dimly lit rooms. And there are scene settings tailored specifically for filming in jazz clubs and rehearsal studios, as well as outdoors.

The Q2n features a 160-degree wide-angle lens that captures stunning video. And it records in 720p or 1080p HD resolution, using the same 24 fps or 30 fps frame rate used in film. An F2.0 aperture makes the Q2n perfect for musicians who perform in a wide variety of lighting environments. Capture the full band or focus on an individual performer using five field of view (FOV) settings. Plus, a colour LCD screen makes it easy to create the perfect shot or review your videos.

With the Q2n in hand, you can finally make videos that sound as great as they look, at a price more affordable than ever.
