Zoom brought unrivaled
stereo sound to your movies with the Q3 Handy Video Recorder. Now, with

with stunning clarity and resolution.
an HD World.
With the Q3HD, it’s
never been easier or more fun to shoot great videos. Select 720p or
1080p for amazing clarity and detail no matter where or what you’re
shooting. It also includes two standard definition (SD) formats for
those times when a smaller file size is needed.
With a new lens
and imaging sensor, the Q3HD captures exceptionally clean video that
is compressed with the high quality H.264 video codec. It also has a
larger aperture, which lets more light into your movies. And with its
4x digital zoom, the Q3HD gets you closer to the action.
Turn it sideways…
Zoom made on-the-go
viewing better than ever with the Q3HD. Simply turn the camera on its
side and press play. Watch your videos anywhere with its “widescreen”
color LCD screen and built-in reference speaker.
up the lights.
With the Q3HD, you
can choose among three different lighting settings. This makes shooting
video in challenging lighting conditions easy. For most situations,
choosing “Auto” will give you the best, clearest results.
You can also select “Concert Lighting”, which will automatically
adjust for rapid changes in stage lights and compensate when the stage
goes dark. Choose “Night” for maximizing any available light
in the lowest light conditions.
Sound makes the movie.
Q3HD uses the same microphone capsules as Zoom’s industry-leading
H4n Handy Recorder. From live musical performances, rehearsals and recitals
to journalism, education, sports or travel, the Q3HD’s pristine
audio is so realistic your movies will transport you back to the moment,
to relive over and over again.
With two on-board,
studio-quality condenser mics configured in a wide 120° X/Y pattern,
the Q3HD gives you true depth and stereo imaging, making your movies
sound as if they were recorded on a Hollywood soundstage.
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 for any given situation. And now with two settings for Auto Level
Gain Control, we’ve made it easy to get great sound no matter what
you're shooting. For outdoor shoots, we highly recommend using a windscreen
over the mics.
All of the Q3HD’s
functions are as clear and comprehensive as the audio and video that
they capture. On the front of the Q3HD, you’ll find two condenser
mics, lens and a recording indicator that lights up red when recording.
The battery compartment is also located on the front of the unit.
