Summary: The sound is fantastic. I've done some voice-overs for videos, and even filmed my own wedding with this thing. The video is mediocre, but I really care about the sound quality. For the price, it does not disappoint. As others mentioned. trying to push the red button in the middle of a joystick arrangement, where the least little bit of sideways motion gets you unintended actions. That's frustrating, and a silly design.
Summary: The video recorder is easy to use and having the accessories makes this a great deal! The batteries will be used quickly, but having the AC adapter that fixes the problem of the batteries in many situations.
Summary: My only regret about buying the Q2HD is that I didn't get it sooner. The video quality is really great and the audio is incredible. Here's a link to a video that I did with it. I was about 50 feet from the stage. The audio is strictly from the stage. We did not use a sound system for the concert. https://vimeo.com/77012035 If you buy this (and I know that you want it) I would reccomend that you get the accessory kit.
Summary: After purchasing and receiving the recommended 32GB SDHC card, I was able to use it to download and install the upgraded version of the operating system for the Q2HD (Ver. 1.2). Why is the latest version not included? Then everything seemed to be working when I began actually recording. However, the batteries went fast. Then I tried to play back the recorded video on my HD TV through the HDMI port. I got a fine picture but no audio.
Summary: This little recorder combines fun, ease of use, utility and quality into a product that is a joy to own. Unlike many other similar products, it comes with everything you'll need to get going. We are associated with a small vintage instrument shop and use our Zoom to record sound files for customers, select moments from workshops and concerts (with artist permission), and special spontaneous moments in the shop. All of us love that it is so easy to grab, point and shoot.
Summary: There are a few little quirks and shortcomings in this recorder; however, the price makes you forget about them. You MUST use a tripod or be a lot more steady-handed than I am to take a decent video. What really blows me away is the sound. I have used an Edirol R-09 for concert recording for several years and this little gadget produces just as good sound as my Edirol. I think they should include the accessories and bump the price accordingly. You can't do without them.
Summary: This is all about excellent sound recording but the video quality is also good. Nice easy controls, so simple to use. Four stars only because it does have flaws: it's unstable so don't try standing it up without a tripod; that microphone means it's big (30% larger than a Flip and too big for your jeans pocket); the case is made of brittle-feeling plastic (so don't drop it) ... and it looks weird. When I use it, folk ask me if it's some kind of video game ...
Summary: If you are looking for something easy to connect to your computer, forget about this one ! It records ok, but the moment you wish to connect via usb ? AMATEUR HOUR CITY !!!!!! Believe me, once you start doing ANYTHING with this piece of junk, you will wish that the thing had a sympathetic nervous system, so that you can inflict PAIN on it. I had to restrain myself repeatedly to toss it against the wall, or stomp it into gear-hell .
Summary: A great and ergonomic design that does not drink batteries. To add, it is very light and portable. Best of all, works with my 64gb sd card for almost limitless HD documentation of the family holiday...
Summary: MINE's a Q3 LOVE the logic behind this product Most vid cams have cap audio but decent video So these guys designed a solid mic and put a camera around it So why 2*s? Because: a. if it's video, there's no sound when I play back on the computer - the video's there, though b.
