Zoom just released their Q3HD Handy Video Recorder — the only handheld to record both HD video and HD audio (24-bit/96kHz). The Q3HD combines Full HD 1080p video with Zoom's renowned audio technology and a new user-friendly icon-based interface allowing users to capture truly immersive movies with ease and confidence.

The Q3HD records in both Full HD 1080p at 30 fps (frames per second) and 720p at 30 or 60 fps. Zoom paired its redesigned larger aperture with three lighting settings to ensure the perfect amount of light in every shot. Zoom's exclusive “Concert Lighting” setting allows the camera to capture clear, detailed videos even in light-intensive environments that would cause most camcorders to wash out.

Zoom smartly incorporated the same microphone capsules used in their industry-leading H4n recorder, configured in a wide 120° X/Y pattern, offering unparalleled stereo recording quality. Users will appreciate how simple it is to set audio levels using the onboard level meters and mic gain switch with auto gain control.

After shooting, videographers can turn the Q3HD on its side to watch videos in 16:9 format on its color LCD screen or take advantage of the built-in HDMI port to view and share new footage on an HDTV. The Q3HD also has a built-in USB 2.0 cable to transfer, view and edit movies on a PC or Mac.

The Q3HD comes with a 2GB SD card that provides up to 45 minutes of HD video and accepts up to a 32GB SDHC card for approximately 7 hours of HD video. Zoom also includes HandyShare editing software and two AA batteries.
