Default Re: Zoom Q3 v. other cameras

I suppose another alternative would be a flip cam, but I hear the audio quality really sucks. Hope this helps!
Hmm, that seems really stupid to not be able to control the level. I would also think that since the camera appears to have been designed with musicians in mind, that it would have simple compression/limiter controls as well. The video I'm not too worried about, 640x480 is fine for what I'm doing now.
