Summer NAMM 2015 – ZOOM Q8 Video Camera w/4 Track Audio Recording

Zoom is a company known primarily for their high-quality field recording equipment, but are makers of a great number of products, including effects processors for guitar and bass, multitrack recorders, and studio interfaces.


This year they also debuted the Zoom Q8 video camera, a handy compact video camera with the patented Zoom interchangeable mic capsules as well as 2 phantom powered XLR/TRS combo inputs for simultaneous 4-track recording. Needless to say, I REALLY want to get my hands on one of these. They shoot 2.3k which is twice the resolution of 1080, and with that kind of I/O it might be putting my GoPro out of commission.

As Editor-in-Chief of Gear Gods, I've been feeding your sick instrument fetishism and trying unsuccessfully to hide my own since 2013. I studied music on both coasts (Berklee and SSU) and now I'm just trying to put my degree to some use. That's a music degree, not an English one. I'm sure you noticed.
