Product Overview

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

Mid-Side brings the audio

The Q2HD is the first handheld camcorder to offer Mid-Side stereo recording. Mid-Side recording, originally offered 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° 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

1920 x 1080 full high-definition video

Your HD Videos are recorded in MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 format, which can be played on a computer using QuickTime player. The Q2HD can record video in full HD at 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution, allowing you to enjoy your finely-detailed audio and video on your large HDTV. You can also select 720p HD for longer recordings, as well as SD formats when smaller file sizes are needed

Lighting selection function

The Q2HD has a lighting selection function that allows you to record using the best setting for any given lighting condition. The modes that can be used include “Auto,” which automatically adjusts brightness and color, “Concert Lighting,” which suppresses oversaturation from strong lighting and “Night,” which is ideal for filming in dark situations

4 x digital zoom

The 4x digital zoom allows you to shoot both distant landscapes and close-ups of people. You can capture your main subject even when it’s far away

Edit video easily right on the scene

Divide or trim your movies internally with the Q2HD, as the unit allows you to cut footage and better feature the important scenes without a computer. By erasing unnecessary data from the SD card, you will increase your remaining recording time

Enjoy HD video on your HDTV

The Q2HD has a mini HDMI connector that allows the digital output of your videos. Connect the Q2HD to an HDTV by using an HDMI cable (sold separately) and enjoy your movies with your family and friends. And the Q2HD’s audio will sound incredible on your home theater’s audio system

24-bit / 96kHz linear PCM sound

The rich stereo sound captured by the Mid-Side mics can be recorded to linear PCM WAV files. When taking full high-definition 1080p video, high-quality sound with resolution of up to 24-bit/96 kHz can also be recorded.

Analog Mic Gain for precision volume control

Using the analog-type MIC GAIN wheel allows you to dial-in the perfect amount of gain for any recording application. Or choose one of three presets (Concert / Solo / Meeting) of the Auto Gain function to automatically set the recording level for any given situation. It’s even easier to get great sound no matter what you're shooting.

Low-cut filter functions

The unit’s low-cut filter reduces unwanted background noise by cutting the low-frequency range. Attach a windscreen (sold separately), to reduce wind noise so you can get clear audio even when filming outside.

It’s also an audio recorder

The Q2HD can also be used as an audio recorder to record just sound. In addition to being able to record 24-bit/96 kHz PCM files that far exceed CD-quality, the unit can also record AAC (m4a format) files that have smaller sizes. The Q2HD also features an internal reference speaker so you can check recordings without earphones

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 units MENU and connect your Q2HD to a computer or iPad 2 or 3 (using Apple’s USB camera connector) to begin recording
