HD Video, Right in Your Hand!

Make amazing videos, complete with premium HD picture and unbelievable stereo sound - from an incredibly affordable, super-portable handheld recorder, Zoom's outstanding Q3HD!

With the Zoom Q3HD, you can choose between 720p or 1,080p and get the fantastic HD video quality you want. Use the 4x zoom and multiple lighting settings to get amazing visual results too. What really makes this portable wonder stand out, though, is the audio quality you get from the pair of outstanding onboard stereo mics. Zoom packed in their finest microphones, featured on the top-selling H4n portable recorder, so you get studio-quality sound when you're recording at the gig and on the go!

There's no doubt about it, you'll love what this little Q3HD recorder can do; it's loaded with the features you need to get great results. You can shoot up to 45 minutes of 720p video with the onboard 2GB SD card, or upgrade to a larger card (the Q3HD even accepts up to 32GB SDHC cards!), for extreme capacity.

After you shoot your video, you can turn the Q3HD on its side and watch its large display - the onboard speaker lets you preview your audio too! Beyond that, the built-in NTSC/PAL TV and HDMI output lets you plug the Q3HD directly into your widescreen television in your living room, so you can enjoy what you shot in all its glory - even before you download the files to your computer.

And, when it's time to share your video with friends, family, or just the rest of the world, you'll love the built-in USB 2.0 cable and the included HandyShare editing and YouTube uploader software that speed up the sharing process. You also get Apple Quicktime, and even two AA batteries. Everything you need to get started is in the box!

When you want to record on the fly - anywhere, you can't beat the Q3HD; it's ready to go when you are. An Auto Level sets recording levels perfectly, so you don't have to fuss with input levels when you're trying to capture footage fast. What's more, the icon-based user interface means easy navigation.

All in all, it's a snap to get around on the Q3HD, whether you're recording, previewing, selecting formats, or downloading. This compact video/audio recorder has all the bases covered - and then some. The Q3HD is a gotta-have for every musician or gadget-lover who appreciates ease of use, super-slim portability, and incredible hi-fi results!
