Zoom Q3HD Handy Video Recorder Review

 

Q3HD Handy Video Recorder

Strong audio quality. Includes audio in and out. Makes basic in-camera edits to free up space. Optionally records audio without video. HDMI and analog video outputs let you watch results on a TV immediately

Lens distance is too tight for small rooms. Short battery life. Cheap body even includes plastic tripod-socket. Doesn't mount as a live OS X audio (or video) device

This quirky looking pocket cam delivers outstanding audio quality. But does it have the HD video performance to match?

Easily the best around for capturing audio, but the 1080p video doesn't impress

Zoom Q3 review

 

Coming out of leftfield, Zoom's Q3 recorder is completely unlike other pocket camcorders: for a change high-quality sound is the primary objective. Zoom's heritage is in audio, and it's well known for guitar effects pedals, but the Q3 adds a healthy...

Zoom Q3 lives up to its claims

 

I asked my brother at last minute to use the Zoom Q3 to record our orchestra concert. It was easy for him to master rapidly - recording was excellent. Video was as good or better than other devices, but recording of music was outstanding. The bad thing...
