Zoom Q2n Handy Video Recorder
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.
It Can Handle the Pressure
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.
Connect and Listen
The Q2n features a 1/8" stereo input jack that lets you connect external mics and other audio devices. And the 1/8" stereo output jack makes it simple to listen to audio with headphones or on your home stereo.
Enjoy the Clarity of Sound
If you’re like renowned pianist Kenneth Crouch, you strive for clarity in your videos. The Q2n captures a full range of frequencies—from delicate to more thunderous sounds—so fans can re-experience your performances with the same detail and accuracy as if they were hearing them live.
Record Audio Only
The Q2n is also capable of recording audio only. Simply use the ‘Camera Off’ settingto capture demos or live performances in stereo sound using the built-in X/Y mics.
Capture the Essence of Your Music
For an acoustic guitarist, nothing's more important than mic placement. Placing the Q2n ten feet away from your guitar achieves beautiful stereo sound. For more nuanced string sound and finger/neck detail, place the Q2n within three feet of your guitar.
Small Enough to Go Everywhere
The Q2n is small enough to carry anywhere, so you’ll always be prepared to capture impromptu performances or record new ideas. It records up to two hours of footage on two standard AA batteries, providing more than enough juice for concerts, rehearsals, jam sessions, and more.
