Pros:

  • 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.
  • Crystal-clear audio. Simple PC connection. Audio recording options

Cons:

  • Video quality is mediocre-looking and uses a standard definition resolution that feels mismatched with its high-definition audio capabilities.
  • On the chunky side. Video is VGA only. Measly 2x digital zoom
