Summary: I had this camera for almost a year, it's very easy to use. However, the video quality is definitely not HD (even at 1080p), you have to work really hard to get the right lighting to get a good video quality. In general, the videos are very blurry.

Summary: I have an older Zoom camera that I use all the time. When I ordered that camera (2yrs ago) it came with a carrying case, foam cover to, put over the microphone when using it outside to cut down on the wind noise, a one 1 gig disk and a charger cord.
Summary: My husband loves this, but when I tried to video tape something it cut me off. I am not sure why. My husband said it was because he needed to replace the batteries. We shall see. The jury is still out on this unit, in my eyes. My husband on the other hand loves it.
Summary: Geeked when I first got this just a week ago but just fed up already . I record one 3 minute video then during the next recording the video freezes up and if course you don't know until you are finished and you check the playback .
Summary: I'm disappointed. The recording quality was about as expected -- audio good; video barely ok. But I was disappointed by the absence of certain basic features. You cannot turn off the red light at the front of the camera. You cannot turn off the screen (even when you're simply recording audio).
Summary: I am a dedicated Zoom user (H4, H1), and my primary purpose is to record lectures as a graduate student. I especially love Zoom H1, and recommended it to my classmates, and they bought their own and love H1.
Summary: This replaces the original Q3. For those of us that have it - we know that the video qualty was so poor it was almost useless. However the sound quality was great. This ups the bar and gives you decent video - though still not up with the Flips and such.
Summary: Pros: I'm satisfied with the audio quality (just for recording my practice). Video quality is not so good but it's more than enough for me. The battery is regular AA, so you can easily get backup batteries at almost any store. Cons: Like some users mentioned, it drains battery very quick.
Summary: This thing has three gain settings: auto (which pumps during a dynamic music performance), low (which is way too low to capture music in a club at a level that's acceptable for a youtube video), and high, which will clip.
