Zoom Q3HD Video Recorder Offers HD Video, High Quality SoundDec 3rd, 2010 | By James Lewin | Category: Digital Video Recorder
Zoom has introduced a new portable video recorder, the Zoom Q3HD, that offers both high quality sound and 1080 video in a portable package.
The Q3HD uses the same microphone capsules as Zoom’s H4n Handy Recorder, a portable digital audio recorder. With two on-board, studio-quality condenser mics configured in a wide 120° X/Y pattern, the Q3HD gives you true stereo imaging.
The Q3HD also displays audio meters, allowing you to quickly monitor and set your levels. Set the gain to High or Low to record in soft or loud environments. Or use the Q3HD’s Auto Level to automatically set the right recording level.
The suggested price for the Zoom Q3HD is $299.99. Details below.
