Bought this to record myself practicing (musical instrument), possibly with a view to recording live gigs or rehearsals too. I'm satisfied with the sound, Over the years I'd heard that Zooms portable recorders were good for capturing sound, it's the reason I bought this.

I originally bought mine with the intentions of using for live streaming. Does NOT work for that!

Breaks to easily screen just went white havent had it for even a year

The sound goes and comes, not god. The image Resolution is not the Best. In fact you can buy a cheapper cámara with better resolution and sound.

Good resolution (HDTV) and relatively good low light capability for the price. The sound recorded is rather good for such small couple of microphone. It does record stereo sound very well and its small size enable the recording the video easy and a small tripod can be used for recording.

Okay so we will break this down into categories: Video, Audio, then overall Build VIDEO Pros -You can make out an image Cons -Really there is no manual settings to change anything in video -Image can be grainy, blurry and distorted -No image stabilization, so bad rolling shuttered is torsion -Really...

Tiny but efficient.

I enjoyed using this camera for recording live music until I used it with a tripod. The SD card slot is on the bottom of the camera next to the tripod screw hole so when you mount a tripod (in this case a Canon Tripod-3) the SD card and slot are crushed.

Don't waste your time or money on a Zoom product. It took hours of troubleshooting just to get it to record and none of the extra features that we purchased it for never worked. After 7 years we were finally able to leave it and buy something better that actually records.

Video image was way to grainy compared to other cameras in the dark, even with adjustments. Great in well lit areas. Files were often corrupted using best recommended SD car. GREAT concept, I can only image it's been refined in newer models.
