Excerpt: I use this for Youtube demo's and webcam. It's geared for that, but would do well for rehearsals or live shows because the audio is far better than a phone. For the price its hard to beat. Very good audio with decent video. The accessory kit is a must. Its easy to use with a simple well laid out menu function. It's more involved when working by yourself as there will be trial and error with set up and sound. But that hassle goes for most audio gear.
Excerpt: I purchased this so I could record live performances of my blues band. I was very impressed with the quality both sound and video of this unit. My only negative is it eats batteries. I solved this by purchasing the accessory kit which includes a AC adaptor. Great buy for under $!!
Pros: Easy to Use, Good in Low Light, Great Picture Quality, Great Sound
Excerpt: I formatted my new 64GB SD card as per the instructions and a note popped up saying it had been formatted. I tried to edit some video with Handy Share my computer shows that the SD card needs to be formatted still. Not a problem if I hadn't already recorded a gig with it which I will lose when I format the card. I can still watch the video, just can't export and edit it.
Excerpt: I am a musician who records herself daily, to be able to watch myself and keep track of progress. Both the video and audio quality are very good (I play percussion, and it does not distort the sound, unless positioned extremely close to the instrument.) It is definitely worth the investment.
Excerpt: We use this to record band rehearsals and performances. I also have an older Zoom sound-only recorder (no video) that we had been using for the same purpose, but in this visual YouTube era, the video accompanying the sound is pretty much a requirement. The sound quality is amazing, and the video is fine -- certainly good enough for any web purpose. Nice wide view, and fixed focus means no fiddling around to get things set up.
Pros: Easy to Use, Good picture quality, Great Sound
