    Zoom brought unrivaled HD audio to your movies with the Q3 Handy Video Recorder.

    Now, with the Q3HD, thereís only one handheld camcorder that does it all in 1080p.

    The Q3HD Handy Video Recorder takes Zoomís renowned audio technology and combines it with HD video, allowing you to capture every moment with stunning clarity and resolution.

    With two studio-quality condenser microphones configured in a wide 120 X/Y pattern, your Q3HD can capture even the loudest live concerts in HD with incredibly clear audio.

    Time lags generated by differences in distances from sound sources are eliminated by aligning the left and right recording positions on the same axis.

    In addition to left-right stereo width, a sense of depth from front to back is also captured faithfully, allowing your recordings to sound three-dimensional.

    Your HD Videos are recorded in MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 format, which can be played on a computer using QuickTime player.

    The Q3HD can record video in full HD at 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution, allowing you to enjoy your finely-detailed audio and video on your large HDTV.

    You can also select 720p HD for longer recordings, as well as SD formats when smaller file sizes are needed.

    A USB cable is conveniently built into the unit, allowing the Q3HD to be connected directly to a Mac or PC. The USB 2.0 Hi-Speed standard allows even large video files to be transferred smoothly and quickly.

    The Q3HDís bundled HandyShare editing and uploading software lets you to manage and edit your videos easily as well as upload them to social networking sites.

    From live musical performances, rehearsals and recitals to journalism, education and sports, you can easily share your movies with everyone on your favorite websites like YouTube or Vimeo.

    Moreover, effect functions in the software allow you to bring the sound of video recordings up to the level of a finished product.

    Normalize a recording for a consistent volume level, add reverb to give rich reflections to the sounds of instruments and voices and use a mastering effect to enhance the impact of a performance with compression. Just select a preset. Itís easy enough for anyone to use.

I use it for school concerts and general home video but intend to use it for home music recording.
It is very easy to use and play back with USB,AV or HDMI.
Battery life is a bit short (around 30 mins) but no problem when using adaptor.

I mainly use the Zoom Q3HD for filming gigs that I play, rehearsals for learning songs and to document my practice. It really has amazed me at the quality of both audio and video. One thing that would be awesome is if there was a remote available.

  • Volume control is difficu

Best Uses

  • Quieter concerts

Comments about Zoom Q3HD Handy Recorder & APQ-3HD Accessory Pack Bundle:

generally quite happy with the qual. Sound became hard to monitor as the meter was not visually in sync with the auto slide setting. Has little control over settings - especially when filming at concerts where they prohibit it's use (red light on front of camera needs to be covered over, screen monitoring impossible to view from any angle but eye level)
Playback is disappointing but on transfer to computer is surprisingly good!
