Our video team was looking for a high quality mic/audio recorder and we definitely found that in the Zoom Q8. The 2 mic/line XLR inputs gives nice extra connections to make this a really versatile tool for shoots. The added bonus of the video camera is a nice feature with HD quality video too.

I love the way the camera records and the sound quality is awesome. Just dont like the battery life. It doesnt stay on long while we are recording live shows.

You would think that the Q8 would have evolved to have been better than their previously successful Q3HD. This is certainly not the case. Evolution has turned into stagnation. The zoom is completely worthless with only four presets (this is a zoom? presets are a zoom???.

Great in low light situations! Love the fish eye lens. And long battery life.

This thing is precisely what I'd hoped. I'm still excited every time I use it. Thank You,ZOOM!

We use this camcorder to record our weekly worship and almost every week we have issues with it. We put a 64 GB SD into it and it stops recording before it even gets to 1gb of video content. Some weeks it just chops the videos up into multiple videos even though it's consecutively recording.

I picked this up to use for several purposes, the first of which was shooting videos at a busy (and loud) music industry trade show. The two extra mic preamps were invaluable, as I was able to record using a directional handheld mic.

Was not satisfied with the Video at all. For the extreme price of this camera I would have expected more for that price ...instead they nickel and dime you to death for accessories that should have been included in the first place. I certainly would not recommend this item.

Small in size but big on performance. One reviewer above knocked the sound, HEY, what do you expect from 2 tiny mikes? That's the reason for so many plug ins on the back! You want 24 bit sound? Then use a full range 24 bit capable mike!
