Ive been trying for several years to get good musical videos on You Tube. Never had anything that satisfied me. Then I got the Zoom q8 with the optional Omnidirectional mic.I finally have videos im not ashamed of. Great video and audio.
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.
Yes. Perfect for what I was looking for. Only draw back is rather zoom button vs in out on screen. Hard to use in sunlight. Really lije volume adjustment for music recording.
I've used a Zoom H4 audio recorder for years (have a couple of them). It's durable, dependable and most importantly is one of the few portable digital recorders that offers XLR inputs for better quality mics. It's that reason I was so excited about the Q8.
I'm excited about the possibilities with this . I wish it did come with software for editing. I guess this is for professionals who have their own . But I did find the drivers for it on the zoom website. Can't wait to dive deep into all the features.
Sucks in low light just like the Q4n does. I thought this cam would be better after returning the Q4n but no. The Canon Vixia MiniX has MUCH better video and is way better in low light. The software interface feels clunky. No loop for the rubber lens cap. Again Canon has one built in.
We are using the Q8 for our webcasting and is 0ne of four cameras. We are also using a Q4 but the Q* has better picture quality and the four by zoom is nice. Good audio control and the addin's for the boom are nice.
Great in low light situations! Love the fish eye lens. And long battery life.
This camera gets the job done for what i do which is field recordings and recording musical situations on the fly on the go and when i dont have time to fiddle with settings.
I got it to upgrade my vlog from a point and shoot still camera that only shot VGA video. So this is definitely a step up from that, but I definitely wouldn't use the camera for anything else. The zoom is digital and goes in several stages.
