Description

Details

The Zoom Q2n houses its stereo condenser mics arranged in an X/Y pattern for clear stereo imaging without phase cancellation issues. Since the mics can handle sound pressure levels up to 120 dB, the Q2n won't shy away from loud rock stages. Audio can be recorded separately from video and saved directly to high-quality WAV files at up to 24-bit/96 kHz.

Plugging the Q2n into your computer or iOS device via USB (may require separately available hardware) unlocks even more functionality. Open up your DAW and you can record directly to new or existing projects. Alternatively, the Q2n can be used as a high-quality webcam for streaming over the web using YouTube Live or other popular streaming platforms.

For power, the Q2n conveniently uses two AA batteries (included) which offer up to two hours of recording time in 1080p, or three hours at 720p. A 1/4"-20 tripod thread lets you secure the Q2n to any standard tripod or mounting accessory for versatile placement options. Whether on the road recording impromptu sound ideas, or reaching out to your fan base over the web, the Q2n can be a valuable tool to any musician.

Sound Quality
High-resolution 24-bit/96 kHz audio recording and SPL handling up to 120 dB ensures clean recordings from nearly any source that will hold up through post-production and publishing.
Wide-Angle Lens
The Q2n features a 160-degree wide-angle lens, and it records in 720p or 1080p HD resolution using 24 or 30 fps frame rates. An f/2.0 aperture makes the Q2n perfect for musicians who perform in a wide variety of lighting environments. Plus, a color LCD screen makes it easy to create the perfect shot or review your videos.
Audio-Only Mode
The Q2n is also capable of recording audio only. Simply use the 'Camera Off' setting to capture demos or live performances in stereo sound using the built-in X/Y mics.
External Connections
The Q2n features a 3.5mm (1/8") stereo input jack that lets you connect external mics and other audio devices. And the 3.5mm (1/8") stereo output jack makes it simple to listen to audio with headphones, on your home audio system, or even in your car.

To view your video recording in high definition, you can connect to an HDMI TV using the micro-HDMI type D output. A USB port allows for connection to a computer or iOS device (requires separately available adapter) so you can use the Q2n as a web camera for live streaming, as a USB microphone for podcasts, or as a card reader to transfer recordings (computer connection only).
