Samson Zoom Q3HD

Handheld video recorder

Recording both HD video and HD audio (24-bit/96kHz), the Q3HD takes Zoom's audio technology and combines it with 1080p video. This point-and-shoot features both full HD 1080p at 30fps and 720p at 30 or 60fps. A 4x digital zoom and a larger, redesigned aperture is paired with three lighting settings. The Q3HD uses the same microphone capsules as Zoom's H4n recorder, configured in a wide 120-degree X/Y pattern, for stereo recordings of unsurpassed quality and depth. Setting audio levels is easy using the onboard level meters and mic gain switch with auto gain control.
