So Zoom also has a video version of their handy recorders.
I'm not sure how long it's been around...

Has anybody used one? Seems like a neat idea: sort of like
a Flip with really good audio, I think. Though, the user interface
on the H2 is less than stellar, so I wonder if it's a hindrance on
the Q3 with the added problem of video settings.

I have one. delighted. sound quality excellent super easy to use video is fine. I dont use my H4 hardly now. the q3 stands in. Im planning on doing a whole bunch of you tube clips over the winter.

its not much as a video camera, zoom is noisy but it works. and cost SFA. excellent for my purposes.

recomended

Thanks, fw. Is there a mode to record audio
without video (i.e., just use it as an audio
recorder)? Might be nice if you don't need
video and want to save file size.

The Q3 is the only portable camcorder that allows you to turn off the video and record audio only. As a high-quality linear PCM audio recorder, the Q3 supports audio recording at 96kHz / 24-bit resolution which is superior to CD quality. You can also record in MP3 format for handy uploading to your website or email.


There is a dedicated switch for it.

Its a great improvement to the H4 for ease of battery and card access. different tool of course not a comparison on any other level really. I got it xat free from the states... camera stand attachment is simpler and an improvement over the H4. I never tried a H2 .The H1 is out so I reckon that is probably the cheapest yoke 4 sessions now, just a guess. Anyone tried it?
