When you need high quality recordings beyond your computer mic, a digital recorder might be the best bet for a variety of reasons. These pocketable devices provide superior sound, convenient file management and longer recording time than the old school tape models some of us remember, with many recorders offering quick audio file transfers to a computer via USB, PC connection or even removable media.
This flip style camcorder is equipped with all the tools of the trade for a picture perfect and with amazing sound quality. It's video quality at full 1080p, matching the quality of the sound it can record. We really like the 2.4" screened Q3HD; it keeps the dual studio quality mics shielded for spatially aware sound. We also like the fact that we get an HD video recorder in one sleek unit.
