Anyone who’s ever experienced a film with great audio knows how vital sound is to the movie. The Q3 brings our renowned audio technology to the camcorder, making it the best sounding video camcorder you’ve ever heard.
The Q3 uses the same microphone capsules as our industry-leading H4n Handy Recorder and is perfect for recording anything where great audio and video are a must. From live musical performances and rehearsals, interviews, conferences to video podcasts, journalism, education, recitals, weddings or sports, the Q3’s pristine audio quality takes your videos to another level.
When your shoot is complete, the Q3’s cleverly designed USB cable lets you upload your movies to your computer. Then use HandyShare to edit and share them on your favorite websites including YouTube, Facebook and MySpace. Or, plug in the included TV cable and watch your videos on television.
With its high-quality, MPEG-4 SP video format at 30 frames/second, the Q3 renders crystal-clear video at 640 x 480 resolution. And the Q3’s large, 2.4” LCD screen with audio level meters, battery indicator, time elapsed and video display makes monitoring the shoot a breeze.
