Back in early October Zoom unveiled the cool Q3HD video recorder and we really liked the features and looks of the thing. What we didn't know at the time was when you would be able to buy the video recorder and how much the thing would cost. The maker of the recorder has now come out and given up the goods on pricing and availability.
Zoom is now shipping the Q3HD and the thing will set you back $299.99. If you missed the device back in October, it's a small handheld camcorder with seriously high quality audio and video. It records in 1080p resolution and has HD audio with 24-bit/96kHz quality.
The video is recorded at 30fps in 1080p resolution and it can record 720p resolution video at 30 or 60 fps. It has three settings for the aperture to give ideal lighting in different situations. It even has a "Concert Lighting" setting for recording concerts. It has a color LCD and an integrated USB 2.0 cable. The thing ships with a 2GB SD card and works with SD cards up to 32GB. Power comes from a pair of AA batteries.
