Zoom announced the launch of their new Q3 Handy Video Recorder on Tuesday. This new recorder allows users to bring professional audio to their portable video recordings.
The Q3 also includes HandyShare software for editing and uploading videos to YouTube. With two condenser microphones, the Q3 uses the same X/Y pattern that gives recording professionals what the company described as the best stereo audio available.
The Q3 also features a 2.4-inch LCD display that includes audio level meters, battery indicator, time elapsed and video display. It accepts up to a 32 GB SDHC card allowing up to 16 hours of movie making. Users can upload videos to their computer with the USB cable for immediate editing and sharing.
Powered by 2 AA batteries, the Q3 will record for up to two hours in stereo and true 640 x 480 resolution refreshed at 30 frames per second.
The Q3 retails for US$249.00 and can be purchased through the company’s site.
