About the Zoom Q3HD

Zoom's Q3HD is the highly speculated and much anticipated successor to the company's first handheld, point-and-shoot camcorder, providing 1080p and 720p HD video to go with the Zoom's remarkable audio capture technology. Designed with musicians in mind, the Q3HD lets you record future-friendly video to go along with a studio-sound courtesy the two condenser mics - the same mics that are found in the company's popular H4n professional field recorder.

The high def video recording of the Q3HD allows you to capture up to 7 hours of 720/30p video on a 32GB card - providing you enough recording space for extremely long events. Play that stunning video back on the 2.4" display, on your analog or HDTV, or on your Mac or PC - and edit with ease using the built-in USB cable and the HandyShare editing software. When you're ready to share with the world, the included YouTube Uploader software helps you do just that quickly and easily.

Other highlights of the Q3HD include 4x digital zoom, audio level controls and the convenience 'AA' or NiMH battery power. An optional windscreen, along with several additional accessories are available as well. Capture awesome audio and incredible point-and-shoot video with the Q3HD.
