"Best to wait"3.0 starson by caponsacchi
Pros: Possibly useful for music instructors, musicians who want to watch themselves practice, and youtube compulsives.
Cons: Youtube is moving to hi def, many buyers already have a good videocam (even a Canon Elf has HD video capability), and many have a Zoom H2. This model duplicates existing equipment, is not state of the art, and will soon be outdated.
Summary: May serve a music teacher's needs for a year or two (but at a fairly steep price). Most would do better to stick with their Zoom H2 or H4n along with their old Flip or comparable videocam. Wait for a device combining even better audio with HD and a zoom lens (even a stabilizer) for all-around spectator usefulness. No need to pretend an improved model won't be here shortly, and at a price comparable to the Q3.
