Four is the magic number

The Zoom Q8n-4K is a versatile recording tool that combines a 4K camera and a four-track recorder. It features a 150° wide-angle lens with five field of view (FOV) options, an interchangeable Zoom X/Y microphone capsule, two XLR inputs (mic/line) with switchable phantom power, a 2" colour LC display that can be flipped 180° for self-movie capture, and an inbuilt mono speaker. The Q8n-4K additionally features a USB interface which allows the user to transfer data to a PC or laptop and also makes it possible to use the device as a webcam for live streaming and online meetings, and the scope of delivery includes a replaceable lithium ion battery, a protective lens cover, a lens hood, a windscreen for the microphone module, a USB cable, and a quick start guide.

Intuitive to operate

Operation of the Zoom Q8n-4K mainly takes place via the buttons located around the display screen. The recording button is located in an easy-to-reach position on top of the device, while other controls - including the on/off switch, the phantom power and input gain buttons, and the memory card slot, are discreetly tucked away behind the fold-out screen. The rotary gain controls have in turn been conveniently placed above the two XLR inputs on the upper edge of the Q8n-4Km, and in addition to the on-screen level meters, the user can also monitor the sound via the headphone output, which is equipped with a dedicated volume control. Should the battery unexpectedly run out, the Zoom Q8n-4K can also be powered via the USB port or using the Zoom AD-17 power supply (sold separately), and the recordings are stored to microSD cards with up to 512GB storage capacity.

For music, talk, sport, and more

Musicians, podcasters, and content creators looking for a high-quality yet budget-friendly recording tool will find what they are looking for in the Zoom Q8n-4K, which is ideal for use on tour, in the rehearsal room, or in the great outdoors thanks to its streamlined design and fold-out microphone unit. Users can always be sure of high-quality sound recordings as well as sharp video images with rich contrast thanks to its scene presets for indoor, outdoor, nighttime, and concert lighting. An "auto" setting is also available, which optimises the lighting based on the environment, and the Zoom Q8n-4K can deliver video resolutions of 720p and 1080p with up to 60 FPS and 4K with up to 30 FPS. What is more, the F2.8/150° wide-angle lens makes the Q8n-4K ideal for capturing everything from musical performances to sporting events, and the device will cut an equally fine figure as a webcam for home office applications.

About Zoom

Founded in 1983, the Japanese company Zoom manufactures a variety of audio equipment, including a range of portable "handy" recorders as well as multi-effects processors, effects pedals, drum machines, and samplers. Over the past thirty years, the company has built a reputation for producing innovative yet affordable products based on original microchip designs. Since the Zoom-9002 (an ultra-compact multi-effects processor that can be attached to a guitar strap) was introduced in 1990, Zoom has become one of the leaders in digital audio processing.

A compact recording studio

Singer-songwriters can record or stream their performances without a mixing desk by simply connecting their guitar and microphone directly to the Zoom Q8n-4K's two inputs. It is also possible to record an entire band - all instruments as well as vocals - by connecting the master outputs from an external mixing desk to the Q8n-4K. Users can also connect a range of different interchangeable microphone capsules (available separately) to the Zoom Q8n-4K depending on their requirements, including the Zoom VRH-8 ambisonic capsule for 360° recordings, the MSH-6 "mid-side" microphone, the SGH-6 hyperdirectional shotgun capsule, and the EHX-6 XLR/jack adapter, which provides two extra discrete inputs. What is more, the BTA-1 Bluetooth adapter allows the Q8n-4K to be remotely controlled from a smartphone or tablet running on iOS or Android.

Zoom Qn-4k
Wall Ace 16.02.2022
First thing one has to know is that zoom delivers great audio quality, which is sooo amazing, I mean all the products I used from Zoom I was always sertisfied, even up to today.

The second thing is that, zoom doesn’t deal much with cameras than audio, I think you know where I am getting with this.

Honestly this thing is amazing as a handheld Camcoder with great audiointerface, which u can mount on a Stative and get Video and audio without needing a pc. On the 4K part mmmmmmmh not really setifying, let’s wait for the update, I bet with an update the screen will stop being noisy. Compared to the previous on, this is indeed an upgrade.

I would advise this to someone who wants to save money in getting a cheap audio interface and 4K camera to make a live view into getting a zoom Q8-4K .

Overall as for my project where I wanted to do streaming, the audio interface from zoom just can’t cut au audio and the camera a dslr


nice product.

It's ZOOM. Only the separate WAV file feature would satisfy me. No, I don't want to have to sync audio with video for the rest of my life, sorry. ZOOM saves me from enormous future pains. One can argue, that the video may not be top class quality ( for 400 euros it is the best value for money in the world ), although I'm pretty satisfied as an amateur videographer, plus documenting my life and all musical endeavors. The audio is top rate, 100% clean, crisp, accurate, miles ahead from the previous Q8 ZOOM, which I have it, too.
Order it today, thank me tomorrow. 400 euros, really? It definitely doesn't deserve this bad mouth it gets from, who else, all the grumpy impossible to please, unless you give them the sky and the earth on the platter, professional complainers in the world.

Sound Top, Bild schwach
MarkusAugsburg 26.02.2022
habe diese "Kamera" nun seit einigen Tagen viel getestet. Als Fazit kann ich nur sagen, wer viel Wert auf Sound legt, und fast keinen Wert auf das Bild ist hier perfekt bedient. Der Sound ist ohne externe Mikros schon sehr gut und durch die direkten XLR Anschlüsse wirklich praktisch, da man Bild und Sound direkt synchron hat und nicht lange im Nachgang bearbeiten muss.
Allerdings kann ich überhaupt nicht nachvollziehen wie man eine Kamera mit 4K 30 bps bewerben und auf den Markt bringen kann die dann ein leider wirklich sehr schwaches Bild liefert. Da ist jedes durchschnittliche Billig-Handy besser. Das ist für eine neues Produkt eigentlich erschreckend.
Klar, für 400 EUR muss man Kompromisse eingehen, aber lieber hätte ich 50 EUR mehr ausgegeben und das Bild wäre wirklich gut.
Egal wie man ausleuchtet, man bekommt mit bester Ausleuchtung und ohne dunkle Bereiche höchstens ein akzeptables Video hin, sobald aber die Ausleuchtung nur ein bisschen schlechter ist geht steil bergab.
Leider gibt es auch keinen Line in Eingang der manchmal sehr praktisch ist und Zoom H4 n Pro dabei ist.
Warum immer alles ein "rumgemurkse" sein muss verstehe ich leider nicht.
Also überlegt es euch genau ... Evtl. doch einen guten Zoom Rekorder und das Video separat drehen. Leider, ist dann aufwendiger aber das Ergebnis stimmt.
Ach ja, mit externen XLR Mikros schaltet es nach ca. 20 Minuten wegen Überhitzung ab ...
Bin stark am überlegen ob ich es zurückgeben. Leider, für meinen Einsatz wäre es so gut passend.
