"Zoom Q8n-4K misses the mark for video quality!"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
The video quality of this camera is super grainy and not useable. Unless you are going to be filming outside in bright sunlight it will be very grainy video. Most bands play in darker settings indoors and I thought recording bands and music was the point of a camera like this with XLRs. It's a major step down from the Q8 that came before it. Other features, such as the TRS inputs (which were within the XLR inputs) were removed, the touch screen feature is removed (replaced with buttons) and the screen can no longer be angled. It's just not worth the additional money to upgrade. I'm glad that I did not sell my Q8s. I sent this item back and will stick with the Q8s because the sound is just as good, and the video is 100% better.
Sound quality is good on this.
The inputs and readouts for the sound and clip monitoring are ok.
Ease of Use
It's easy to get good sound with. Impossible to get good video with.
Not sure. Most Zoom stuff seems to last. Didn't keep it so don't know about the long term.
The Wow Factor
Not good. No.
