I purchased the Zoom Q4 to have a 'handy' video recorder with high-quality sound for documentary interviews, general purpose recording, and a 'B' camera placement in odd locations during a shoot.

Love this device I use it all the time. But, to get the best quality out of your video, make sure you have proper lighting for that super HD video look. 5 Stars

Sound quality is excellent and fully adjustable. Video quality is completely adjustable. For the cost they might want to think about including a HDMI to Micro cable that IS required and had to be purchased separately... Overall, very satisfied!

I'm sorry I bought it, and worse still as a gift to someone. Sound is good for the size, nothing to write home about but I suppose good for the price but the picture is abject, like a video toy from 20 years, or what you'd expect from a cheap security camera.

I looked at a lot of information before ultimately purchasing this camera, which was at an AMAZINg price compared to other places. I like the end results of the audio and video, and I even like the much wider video angle.

Wow what a disappointment, dark video all grainy and awful, sound just OK!

Pros: For such a tiny camera this thing takes great video but it's the audio that is exceptional. The two microphones pick up sound from loud concerts perfectly with little to no issues.Cons: No Zoom features could be a problem if you want to get close.

Not what I thought it was. Pretty much a glorified web cam with more features. Nothing more than a few feet away or everthing gets washed out.

I use this to record my band at shows. Quality sound and picture! Easy to operate as well!

First, I know Zoom has discontinued this product and replaced with the Q4n. I did not need the added benefits of the n model. Actually, the Q4 exceeds the quality of what I need. I am using these in research to view the actions of individuals. Some of the recordings may be 30 to 45 minutes.
