Buying Choices

Zoom released the new Q4 video and audio recorder which gives full 1080p video recording with a dewcent X/Y mic for capturing both to SD card. With a live HDMI output too, the applications are pretty windespread. The bad news (for us Brits) is that 25 and 50i are not supported which makes us sad. We dont think there is a regional variant either.

The plus side is that the windshield is prime to have a couple of stick on eyes to make it look like a cross between Beaker and a Gonk, this is surely a good thing.

Still you do get:



  • HD video resolutions up to 1080p (MPEG-4 AVC/H.264)
  • Capture more with the 130-degree wide angle lens
  • Vari-angle LCD flips to lens side for easier self-shooting
  • Three lighting presets (Auto / Concert Lighting / Night)
  • Live-streaming function with HD video




  • Up to 24-bit/96 kHz PCM audio
  • Built in, professional quality stereo X/Y microphone
  • Auto Gain and Low-Cut filter functions
  • USB microphone function
  • Includes Hairy Windscreen for field recording
