    HD VIDEO + FOUR-TRACK AUDIO RECORDER Think of the possibilities.

    The Q8 marries high-definition video with high-resolution audio, making it the perfect camera for music and video creators everywhere. Its 160 degree wide-angle lens and digital zoom ensure that you'll always capture the complete picture. Combine that with ZOOM's groundbreaking interchangeable mic capsule system and two XLR-TRS combo inputs, and you have a world of audio options.

    Transfer the files to your favorite editing software via USB and turn your raw footage into high-quality productions. The Q8's compact size makes it the perfect B-roll camera too, allowing you to go where your big rig can't and capture video from unusual angles. You can even use the Q8 as a standalone audio field recorder.

    We're All Creators: Whatever you're into - music, video, podcasting, blogging, or teaching - the Q8 can help you achieve your creative goals. Here are just a few suggestions for ways it can be used.

    The Musician: Great performances can be elusive but with the Q8, they can live forever. .

    The Indie FIlmaker: The compact size of the Q8 and its compatibility with both tripod mounts and three-prong action camera mounts mean you can shoot footage anywhere.

    The Podcaster: Get creative and do it right. By bringing together high-definition video and high-resolution 24-bit/96k audio, the Q8 allows you to take your YouTube creations and podcasts to a whole new level.

    The Blogger: Don't let anything get in the way of the story. The Q8 is perfect for electronic newsgathering, for conducting interviews, and for creating personal video blogs and podcasts.

    The Teacher: With its high-quality sound and crisp, sharp video, the Q8 is the perfect teaching tool. Use it to capture students' rehearsals and performances so they can review and perfect both form and technique, documenting and enabling their musical growth.

    The Video Pro: With single-button recording, self-timer, high quality wide-angle lens, and sensing options that automatically adapt to various lighting situations, the Q8 is the ideal tool for creating professional-quality videos with pristine audio.
