Zoom Q3HD review

 

This quirky looking pocket cam delivers outstanding audio quality. But does it have the HD video performance to match?

Easily the best around for capturing audio, but the 1080p video doesn’t impress

Zoom Q3

 

The advent of dedicated, pocket-size video cameras , popularized by Flip, Kodak, and Creative, brought a welcome change from the bulky tape recorders of the past. Most users praise the simple operation and basic features of this new breed of video...

The Zoom Q3 is a portable video recorder with uncompromising audio quality. Its small size, removable SDHC storage, built-in USB cable, and replaceable batteries, make it ideal for on-the-go musicians and journalists.

Video quality is mediocre-looking and uses a standard-definition resolution that feels mismatched with its high-definition audio capabilities.

The Zoom Q3 is long on audio features, but short on video quality, but it fills a niche for musicians and avid concertgoers who may prize sound above all other considerations.
