Solid Audio


So far, I've found the Zoom Q4 to be suitable, but not entirely what I expected. For starters, it is much smaller than it seems pictured online. Also, while the video quality is advertised as HD 1080p I have felt like it leaves something to be desired....

very small and lightweight


This is my first video camera so it is easy to understand. It's very small so it is easy to take anywhere. Very good sound.

Handy indeed


Very compact and yet delivers big results. Great audio and video quality, easy to navigate. Overall a great product for what I use it for. If you're looking for great zoom features though, this isn't your camera.

Video and sound quality and solid for the price point. In hindsight I'm not sure why a zoom function wasn't included. Ironic with the company name.
