Summary: The Q2HD performs extremely well. However, it is important to also purchase the AC adapter because the device does not operate very long with batteries. I used it for a concert and the sound and video are excellent.
Summary: Best father's day gift yet! Yes it is a week early, but you can blame that on Mr. Smartypants. I love this man dearly, but he leaves little room for gifts as he buys his own gifts, all the time! Imagine trying to buy gifts for someone whose impulse buying is worse than mine, you either buy the product immediately or try to steer his attention away from the gift you bought him, again, and again, and again...ad nauseum.
Summary: I bought this for the sound more than for the video. The sound is amazing. The picture is dreadful, but you need good lighting to make the video sharp and crisp. The price is excellent and it's very portable and easy to use. Make sure you follow the directions, otherwise it's complicated to setup.
Summary: #1 Best Camera AUDIO Recorder on the Market for the Price! Zoom's by-line used to be: "A little bit of video and a whole lot of audio" The reason you buy this recorder is you only have 100 bucks and you want killer audio recordings to accompany your average videos. Believe me, an average video with great sound is much better than a great video with lousy sound. For one to get both, you will have to shell out a lot more money or get fancy with various equipment.
Summary: I heard a lot of gripes from "video experts" about this product before I purchased it. First of all, if you are looking for the best video in a compact video recorder, this is not for you. If you are looking for a decent compact video / audio recorder, this product just might be for you. I ordered the Japanese version because it is black, and it's cheaper and I was willing to wait a week for it to arrive.
Summary: So easy to use and amazingly lightweight. I read the reviews in advance and made sure to use the sim card that came with it the first time I hooked it up to initial software install on my computer, and THEN installed a larger card for recording. GREAT audio quality and really impressive video recording. Love this thing and editing is so simple.

Summary: I've been in the music business for more than five decades. I've was a "signed act" and had songs published in the mid-to-late sixties. Now I do lease/license releases for myself and the industry. Many years ago I would record potential players or singers with a stereo reel-reel... later with a multi-track, particularly for drummers... to use for later review. Additionally I would record myself for an "industry shopper" - for my songs...
