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.
