Mid-Side Brings The Audio
The Q2HD is the first handheld camcorder to offer Mid-Side stereo recording. Mid-Side recording, first introduced by Zoom on the H2n Handy Recorder, is a technique that's been used for many years in film and broadcast, where ambiance is crucial. Mid-Side recording combines a unidirectional Mid mic that captures sound directly in front of you and a bidirectional Side mic that captures sound from your left and right. By increasing or decreasing the level of the Side mic, you can control the width of the stereo field, which gives you incredible flexibility over your recordings.
With its condenser microphones in 30 to 150 degree Mid-Side stereo configuration, the Q2HD gives you natural depth and accurate imaging. From live musical performances, rehearsals and recitals to journalism, education, sports and travel, the Q2HD's pristine audio is so realistic your movies will let you relive the moment over and over again.
The Q2HD also displays audio meters, allowing you to quickly set and monitor your levels. Using the analogue-type MIC GAIN wheel allows you to dial-in the perfect amount of gain for any recording application. Or use the Q2HD's Auto Gain Control to automatically set the recording level for any given situation. And now with three presets for Auto Gain control (Concert / Solo / Meeting) it's even easier to get great sound no matter what you're shooting.
Live Stream in Real-Time
Want to live stream high quality audio and video from your gigs, special events and more? With the Q2HD, now you can stream your videos through your computer directly to the web. Simply connect your Q2HD to your computer via a USB cable and start streaming like the pros. The Q2HD's streaming function is compatible with Ustream Producer, Flash Media Live Encoder, Skype and other popular streaming applications. And it works wonders with premium programs such as Ustream Producer Pro or Studio. It's never been easier to broadcast your movies on the web in real-time.
All In HD
With the Q2HD, it's never been easier to shoot great videos. Select 1080p or 720p for amazing clarity and detail no matter where or what you're shooting. With a new lens and imaging sensor, the Q2HD captures exceptionally clean video that is compressed with the industry standard H.264 video codec. It also has a larger aperture than its predecessor, which lets more light into your movies.
The First USB Mid-Side Mic
Expanding its versatility, the Q2HD also functions as a USB microphone with Mid-Side miking capabilities. Simply choose USB Mic in the unit's MENU and connect your Q2HD to a computer or iPad 2 or 3 (using Apple's USB camera connector) to begin recording.
Zoom made on-the-go viewing better than ever with the Q2HD. You can easily switch between 'Portrait' and 'Landscape' playback by pressing and holding the PLAY key. Watch your videos anywhere with its colour LCD screen and built-in reference speaker.
Cue The Lights
With the Q2HD, you can choose from three different lighting settings, all of which have been improved from its predecessor. This makes shooting video in challenging lighting conditions easy. For most situations, choosing 'Auto' will give you the best and clearest results. You can also select 'Concert', which will automatically adjust for rapid changes in stage lights and compensate when the stage goes dark. Choose 'Night' for making the best of the low light conditions.
Navigate With Ease
The Q2HD features an icon-based user interface that makes navigating through all its functions easy and intuitive. Play, edit or delete movies, select video and audio formats and a host of other functions with ease.
Share Beyond Streaming
When your shoot is complete, plug the Q2HD into your Mac or PC via USB cable and download your movies directly to your computer for editing and sharing. In addition, the Q2HD's new FILE Divide and Trim functions let you edit your movies right on the unit.
The Q2HD also includes Zoom's 'HandyShare' software for editing your movies. And you can now add effects like reverb and normalise the audio for consistent levels, making your movies sound better than ever. Or, bring them into more sophisticated editing software like iMovie or Final Cut Pro for more extensive edits, effects and titles. HandyShare can also be used to upload your videos to YouTube. The Q2HD also has a mini-HDMI output, which allows you to view your movies directly on an HDTV.
With the Q2HD, there's never been an easier way to promote your music. Now, all your videos will look amazing and sound like they were recorded in a professional studio. Classical to metal, solo to full orchestra, the Q2HD is ideal for shooting any kind of musical performance and sharing it with the world.
Everything You Need To Film In HD
The Q2HD is packaged with everything you need to make your movies right out of the box. It includes a 2GB SD card, HandyShare editing software and two AA batteries. With a 2GB SD card, you can record over 40 minutes of HD video. The Q2HD will accept up to 64GB SDXC cards for an incredible 15 hours of HD moviemaking.
