Good audio quality, below-average video, useless battery life

  • Summary: I guess they think having decent audio means you can make people overlook the terrible video quality. And to be honest I would've overlooked it if the batteries lasted more than 20 minutes before needing to be replaced. Poorly put together, cheap construction, and I went through a handful of new batteries while playing with it for an hour-and-a-half.

Good Audio, Bad Video (just a toy)

  • Summary: HD?????? Don't be fooled... the Zoom Q3HD is just a toy. (my cell phone has better video quality!) I do a lot of recording for an American made guitar manufacture. So I was looking for an extra angle as well as great sound recording w/out breaking the bank. The audio is good... sound is crystal clear & almost has a stereo surround/3D effect but lacks the manual control of the gain. The video, not so much... truth is the quality of the HD video is terrible!

amazing audio, sub par video

  • Summary: PROS The audio is impeccable. Different options for file format. Handles really really loud bands perfectly. It has an option to record audio only which is cool. CONS The video plain sucks. You get two options really: Dark or crappy. I don't honestly see a difference between it and the first Q3. The videos are often out of sync. The color of the videos are sickly dull, pale and yellowish and look like a crappy cell phone video when in night mode.
