Samson 1080p Handy Camcorder, Good for certain kinds of legal documentation/investigation situations where you

My spouse enjoys this, but when i attempted to movie tape some thing it cut me off. My husband claimed it was due to the fact he essential to swap the batteries. The jury is nevertheless out on this device, in my eyes. My husband on the other hand enjoys it.

For a musician its just as required as a metronome. This is a wonderful software not just for working towards and recording your self but its also great for an audition recording. Its definitely uncomplicated to use and the sound excellent specifically its prime notch for the price tag your paying. Also the movie excellent its very awesome although you should really have in intellect that this is no substitute for a semi-professional handy cam. If you are thinking in acquiring it you should really buy also the accessory pack its incredibly useful and its not quite highly-priced.

Movie is cell-telephone high quality. . As other people have reported:- good audio- video is sub par — about the exact same top quality as i can get from my mobile telephone camera (maybe a bit improved). Pertaining to battery life:- i use samsung eneloop rechargeables. I put them in, established this up on the tripod, force the button, and have no complications recording a 2-hour demonstrate. Concerning premature shut-off:- see higher than. I have recording several shows lengthier than a single hour, and experienced no challenges with the digicam shutting off. I amount this unit a 5 for the adhering to cause:- it receives the good audio i want for my musical performances- it will get me a minimal bit of video too, all for less than $three hundred- i looked into pairing up a bigger-quality online video digital camera with an external microphone. I could not find a way to do it that would not set me back at the very least $700. A tripod is *very* suggested.

Online video good quality much far better than on kodak zx5. 1080p is significantly clearer than 720p. Audio high quality in a completely unique league. This unit has some nice stereo microphones that seize seem really nicely and creates a abundant stereo seem discipline. Awesome to have audio options for equally lpcm and aac. Create high-quality is a but mild would like for this to have been built a little bit far more rugged. Deficiency of image stabilization necessitates some exercise and a continual hand to capture smooth movie. Lack of optical zoom tends to make the zooming attribute fairly disappointing. Microphones are incredibly sensitive, requires windscreen to reduce down on wind sounds in outside shots.

This replaces the unique q3. For all those of us that have it – we know that the video clip qualty was so poor it was pretty much useless. Having said that the audio high quality was excellent. This ups the bar and offers you respectable video clip – even though nonetheless not up with the flips and these kinds of. The greatest location is not realy valuable as motion will get ‘jumpy’ – so unless of course men and women and things really don’t move – don’t use that environment. I am not confident that the audio is up to what the previous q3 was. I have to have seem at the options and how they outcome the audio. What genuinely bums me is that zoom now gives nada in packaged add-ons. You have to have to get the ac adapter – the batteries will die in an hour.

Samson 1080p Handy Camcorder – Q3HD (Discontinued by Manufacturer) : We usually say “form meets function” having in mind elegand devices from braun or apple, but in this case, although the camera looks like an alien device from man in black, the final results are surprisingly good. The sound quality makes all the difference indeed, even in unfavorable conditions (inside my car in heavy traffic, for example). The video quality is also good for a camera with only one control (record button). Ok, there is a zoom functionality but i didn’t try it yet :).

    Great device for recording auditions and concerts, and uploading video to youtube. This is a great little recording device, good for uploading video of a budding musician (auditions and concerts) to youtube. It arrived in all the proper packaging but did not seem 100% brand new since the serial number was rubbed a bit and there were one or two tiny nicks on the device as well as a few scratches on the screen. All of the minor marks are more than compensated by the compact size, utility, quality of recordings as well as the video, and the ease of use. I started using it immediately after loading the batteries; the interface does not need any additional explanation and although it came with a manual, i haven’t needed it yet. This model has been discontinued, so if you can find one, i recommend purchasing it.

    Good for certain kinds of legal documentation/investigation situations where you. Good for certain kinds of legal documentation/investigation situations where you need to pick up great audio and video is also desirable but it doesn’t have to be theater-quality (although i must say the video performance in low light is very decent). Lots of times, a more obtrusive setup isn’t practical, desirable or perhaps even possible to carry into a situation. For instance, this unit doesn’t tend to chill a witness like dragging out a camcorder can do. Field interviews, depositions (especially with line-in), etc, great addition to an investigator’s gear bag.

    This is an amazing little video recorder. This is an amazing little video recorder. . The sound is awesome for loud venues and usb is easy to import into imovie.
    1. Simply its the best video recorder for high volume situations, from band rehersals to concerts, i even recroder an iron maiden concert last year and sound without any clipping, sounds great.

    Stellar audio, so so otherwise. The lo gain mic setting handles very high spl – almost any concert level. The hi setting is much more sensitive. I often wish for a medium setting. Battery life is a little disappointing, probably because the display never turns off. I think there should be a screen saver option when tripod recording and not needing to constantly see the screen. Still, 4 stars for having such great audio.

    Outstanding audio, good video. In a “nutshell” the q3hd is a high end stereo recorder with video capability. I play in a “weekend warrior” cover band and the q3hd is perfect for capturing our “live sound”. All the instruments are clearly heard and the sound is vastly superior to anything short of a professional ($3,000 +) video camera. The video is good but nothing that i would call exceptional. It eats batteries pretty quickly so i recommend getting the ac adapter as well as the windscreen (a little breeze really makes it rumble). Overall the band is very pleased with the q3hd and would recommend it for those more interested in sound quality over video quality.

    Audio quality ok, video bad. I had this camera for almost a year, it’s very easy to use. However, the video quality is definitely not hd (even at 1080p), you have to work really hard to get the right lighting to get a good video quality. In general, the videos are very blurry. The audio is great but the high and low gain settings are totally extreme, you can’t dial a middle position to suit your needs better.

    Good for small concert venues. Great 2 channel sound, but hd video could be better. Got a great video and recording of los lobos at the belly up tavern in solana beach, ca.
    1. For a musician its just as necessary as a metronome. This is a great tool not just for practicing and recording yourself but its also ideal for an audition recording. Its really easy to use and the sound quality specially its top notch for the price your paying.

      1. Zoom q3hd handy video recorder. The zoom q3hd has been working out great for me. It’s very convenient and easy to use. I’ve been using it to record gigs, rehearsals and in the classroom. There are limitations as far as video options but the sound quality is very good.
  10. I am extremely disappointed. I have an older zoom camera that i use all the time. When i ordered that camera (2yrs ago) it came with a carrying case, foam cover to, put over the microphone when using it outside to cut down on the wind noise, a one 1 gig disk and a charger cord. With the zoom camera i just ordered/received all that came with it was a 2 gig disk. Most electronic devices come with at least a charger. I don’t usually the camera outside so i don’t really need the wind cover and i do appreciate the 2 gig disk, however because the camera runs 8-10 hours a day, we go through a set of batteries more often than i care to think about and they often die at a time when it can not be replaced right away ( after someone notices that it was dead and not recording). Because we are recording 8 hours/day it would make sense we just plug the camera in instead of using batteries, however this is impossible because there is nothing to plug it in with. I feel the camera should have included a charger, like every other electronic device and the older versions of the same camerapam mills.
