Up Your Impact
The iQ5 enables you to create anywhere and stir the world around you. Blur the line between
observer and instigator by matching significant content with quality sound.
Versatility For Audio And Video
The iQ5 employs a unique rotating mechanism that enables audio recording with correct
left-right stereo orientation whether used vertically or horizontally. Use it in standard "audio"
position or simply rotate it to the "video" position in order to record video with the attached
iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch held horizontally.
Mid-Side Stereo Made Easy
Mid-side recording makes it easy for anyone to record in realistic (and fully mono-compatible)
stereo. The iQ5 contains two microphone elements: a directional "mid" mic that captures audio
coming from in front and a bidirectional "side" mic that covers ambient signal.
Stereo width can be customized to the precise recording situation: Set it to 90° to hone in on an
individual sound, or 120° for a wider image that includes the surrounding ambience and
reverberation. For even more control, record the mid and side mic signals as raw MS data so that
you can later adjust the stereo width from 30§ to 150§ with Zoom's free Handy Recorder iOS app.

The iQ5 makes it easy to capture great sound no matter what type of material you're recording.
Dial in the exact input level you need with the analog-type MIC GAIN wheel, choose one of the
three Auto Gain presets to automatically set the perfect recording level, or use the Limiter setting
to avoid overloads.
