Zoom Q3HD Handy Video Recorder Review

Maclife
18 March 2011
  • Conclusion: The Q3HD pairs decent image quality with uncommonly good audio. It’s easy to overlook this pocket shooter’s shortcomings once you hear the difference.
  • Pros: 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.
  • Cons: 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.

Zoom Q3HD

1 June 2011
  • Conclusion: Le Zoom Q3HD est un enregistreur audio doté d’une caméra, filmant jusqu’en 1080p. Son originalité et ses fonctionnalités présagent sur le papier d’un produit intéressant. Affaire à affirmer dans le test.
  • Pros: simplicité d'utilisation, qualité du mode vidéo 1080p, mode de diffusion des enregistrements (TV HD, système audio indépendant...), qualité audio remarquable, sensibilité des micros, réglages disponibles, possibilité d'engistrer de l'audio uniquement
  • Cons: design, connecteur USB trop court, qualité vidéo en 720p et WVGA, bundle assez pauvre (peu de câble fourni), prix

  • Conclusion: So vielfältig wie vom Hersteller beschrieben lässt sich die Q3 wegen der geringen Kamera-Auflösung nicht verwenden. Seine Hauptaufgabe, qualitativ hochwertige Audioaufnahmen zu erstellen, meistert das Gerät jedoch um so besser.
  • Pros: Standard-AA-Batterien, Sehr gute Audio-Qualität
  • Cons: mäßige Video-Qualität, klobig
