Zoom Q3hd Video Recorder is Perfect for Concert Bootleggers

If you are the sort that goes to a lot of concerts and records them, you have probably noticed that the audio on most camcorders is far from as good as the quality of the video. A company called Zoom has been making some very nice dual microphone audio recorders for a long time for recording music and speech along with any other spoken word thing a geek might want to record.

The company took the mics and audio circuitry from that audio recorder, crammed them inside a video camera back in October, and offered up most of the details on the thing at the time. The recorder is called the Q3HD Handy Video Recorder and it has 1080p resolution at 30 fps recording. It can also record 720p at both 30fps and 60fps. The video resolutions are common today on all sorts of camcorders, but the Q3HD has impressive sound. The microphones record sound in 24-bit/96KHz quality. The device has three aperture settings for different lighting conditions and has an integrated USB cable and HDMI output.

Here’s an example clip shot with the Q3HD:

Clearly, the audio is much better than your cellphone can shoot, but the video seems about average. You can see more example footage shot with the device here.  It is available to buy right now and will cost you $299.99 (USD) over on Amazon.
