Not bad, but not the greatest camcorder for confined spaces
26 June 2014
Summary: Most of the other reviews here have covered the main drawbacks of this unit - short battery life, respectable but middling video quality, etc. None of that stopped me from buying this. I have had two Zoom handheld audio recorders for years and they've been great despite a couple quirks.
Summary: it.I purchased it so I could demo my band to club owners.it doesn't seem to want to work too well with Windows 8 or my photoshop elements video.maybe it's just me not sure yet. However if you just wanna watch it off the little tiny screen it seems to work good.otherwise it seems to be a good little recorder and video.also if you have large fingers the navigation button is extremely difficult to operate takes some getting used to.
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: I bought ZOOM Q2HD from local Bestbuy. The video is OK, good enough for web publishing and audio sound was almost perfect for my guitar song solo recording. For the price paid, this is good, almost exactly what I need. The only thing I did not like is that it consumes battery quickly, yet there is no AC power adapter. You can connect it to PC using USP cord, but my PC electronic fan makes noise which affects audio quality.
Summary: Just used my Q2 for the first time. Good video, good but low level sound, intensely bad battery life. I would say that the video quality is marginally better than my iPhone, the sound is far superior - even if you have to crank the recording level to 11 for voice - but 2 fresh AA batteries barely lasted 30 minutes. I expected much better - the Zoom H1 audio recorder lasts forever on a set of batteries.
Can it stream live via wi-fi like the bloggie live?

Summary: I like the fact that it has removable batteries and memory BUT can it stream live (without a PC), save at high resolution, &/or transfer files to a cell phone, via wi-fi like the bloggie live?
Excerpt: Hij ziet er nogal knullig uit, goedkoop uitgevoerd, maar het geluid is fantastisch. Ik gebruik hem voor het opnemen van doorgaans zeer luidde rock concerten en het lijkt wel hoe harder hoe beter de geluids opname. Check een resultaat hier: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BWCgmdnLD4I. Het uploaden naar Youtube gaat niet helemaal lekker, je krijgt de melding dat het geluid en beeldspoor niet even lang zijn, maar ik heb de meegeleverde software nog niet gebruikt, misschien...
