Summary: Good machine, got for a good price. This thing eats batteries, so it's disappointing that you have to order a mains adaptor separately, and then order a mini-USB-to-USB cable for that to work...
Summary: Works great, best thing to do is rig up a 1 or 2 lb. hand weight with a 1/4 inch threaded bolt to use as a counterweight. Keeps the camera from shaking around. A tripod is good also. Camera is light, so it is easy to carry, but pictures will be shaky , if not held steady.
A waste of money---lousy cheap product with poor software integration for Windows....

Summary: bought this for my daugher in her College school work... It is not a very great product....camera seems cheaply built... Was almost impossible to download movie file from the camera to her Windows computer... Seems a Apple add on software for extra money was necessary to purchase to make this work.... Not anywhere neat the value we spent on this camera... Her old Sony DSC N 1 did the job afterall for the movies requirements....
Can be valuable when looking to get better sound without spending a lot.

Summary: Works well both with mac or windows applications both as a webcam and a Mike to record sound. You can inhance the cam with one of those inexpensive wideangle attachments like for an iphone. overall its a good value as it should yield the higher quality sound expected of a Mike of its type and caliber.
Excerpt: I use the zoom products for everyone from band recordings to karaoke, live filming at Live Action Roleplay events, ATVing, everything... even podcasting. When the q2 came out, I had to get it and MAN was a disappointed! The battery life is 20 minutes, audio is not near what the Q3 is and the case just feels cheaper. Never again will I buy a Zoom product.
Pros: Easy to Use
Cons: Poor Image Quality, Poor In Low Light, Poor Sound
