Re: Zoom Q3
I dont know why it cut out. Even using the A/C adapter. I set the mic to low, and got good sound, i really dig the tripod that comes with the acessory pack as well, though i still use a regular camera case to keep all the stuff in haha.
Yes, mine is the HD version, i love the video quality of it, i only set it to 720, as the 2 GB card doesnt hold that much video. Next time i have a few hundred bucks laying around i will buy a few 32G SD cards. Do some work better for the Q3 than others? Eventually id like to be able to grab about 2 hours of video, to record entire jam sessions and start picking apart my playing.
All in all im very pleased with this camera, i find it easy to use and it works great. The software the comes with it is a bit bare....has anyone tried a third party video editing suite? I have to find the discs for mine still, but will probably give it a shot anyways.
What really sold me, is a guy in the store (not a sales person) showed us a you tube video of his band playing in a bar, and his wife at the back of the crowd, and even over everyone yelling and screaming the sound came out, and i know the sound isnt that great in the venue they were at haha.
