great sound but poor picture and awkward to use.

scottishmser, Ebay
4 December 2013
  • Summary: While the sound is great the picture is not. The picture is just average and nothing special. Also, it really is a bit awkward to use due to it's shape. Turns out that it is more novelty than functional.

Audio quality ok, Video bad

Víctor Hugo Mateos Terreros, Amazon
21 August 2013
  • 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. The audio is great but the high and low gain settings are totally extreme, you can't dial a middle position to suit your needs better.

  • Summary: Great video quality but lacks in sound quality compared to zoom H4N. Low recorded volume level even when sound source is petty close to recorder.

I am extremely disappointed

Pam Mills "Pam Mills, CCHt Board Certified Cl..., Amazon

  • 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. With the Zoom camera I just ordered/received all that came with it was a 2 gig disk. Most electronic devices come with at least a charger.

jury is still out

Linda Hannon-Weber, Amazon

  • 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.

a good video recorder with some flaws

B. Zhao "Cool Panda", Amazon
1 October 2011
  • 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. This semester I am taking a lecture and the professor use projectors and didn't give the notes in order.

Zoom Q3HD

Ziggy, Amazon
27 March 2011
  • 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. The highest setting is not realy useful as motion gets "Jumpy" - so unless people and things don't move - don't use that setting. I am not sure that the audio is up to what the previous Q3 was.
