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....

Terrible camcorder

 

I have a Panasonic HX-DC3 which I love and I wanted a replacement but with better sound. Q4 video is much worse than the Panasonic, the picture inside always has a fuzzy haze over it. The highest quality level sound requires its own codec that I cannot...

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.

Cheap and good for kids, miss a zoom option though

 

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.

OK

 

This camera did not suit my purposes. The screen is too small and the menus sparse and confusing. The articulated microphone is great and works really well but the video quality suffers. Will not work while plugged in so you are stuck with the charge...

Zoom Q4 is a Great Product

 

I purchased the Zoom Q4 as an upgrade of the Q3, which I have owned for the past two years. It is used primarily to record gigs and practice sessions of my son's heavy metal rock band. The Q4 provides outstanding audio recordings of the band playing at...
