The Zoom Q2N is the perfect camera solution for musicians capturing a live performance, studio rehearsal or music videos in high quality. Combining a crystal clear camera with built-in Stereo X-Y microphones, the Q2N sets a new standard for recording Podcasts, Youtube Content and Jamming sessions without the hassle of separate equipment. Just hit record, and do what you do best. Play!

The Ultimate Camera For Musicians

With Youtube and Video Streaming becoming the most accessible way for aspiring musicians to be seen and heard, video plays an important role in helping you reach a wider fan base. It’s a digital world and that means an inspiring performance can take the Internet by storm. But you can’t capture your music with just any camera. You need one that records incredible audio, as well as crystal clear video.

The Zoom Q2n gives you a fast and easy way to create HD videos with high-impact audio. The built-in X/Y microphones capture sound with beautiful stereo imaging. And 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.

With the Q2n in hand, you can finally make videos that sound as great as they look - at a price more affordable than ever. It also features direct-to-SD Card recording, USB and HDMI connectivity, so you can hook up to your computer, laptop, TV or handheld devices for simple file transfer and playback.

Capture the finer details

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 Q2N performs particularly well with acoustic instruments and vocals. For example, set it up infront of an Acoustic Guitar and capture both neck and body resonance with crystal clear definition. For Youtube and Twitch streaming, the Q2N handles spoken word and epic gaming reactions equally well!

Your Best Moments in Any Environment

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. Even if you're just recording in your bedroom - Q2N can handle it all.

Up Close and Personal

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 color LCD screen makes it easy to create the perfect shot or review your videos.

True Portability

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.
