    New Video Recorder Day

    Learned about this nice piece of gear through Jim Soloway's post about it a while ago: the Zoom Q2n video recorder. Watched a couple of youtube reviews and sample videos to help in decision making and finally puchased one.
    So far I'm very pleased with it - handling is a piece of cake, video and audio quality are very good.
    You can also just record hq audio in case you don't need any video so it's like two gadgets in one.

    Here's a little clip I recorded this morning - sorry, no jazz...:






    Thanks to Jim - without his post I wouldn't even know about this!

    Looks and sound good to me.

    Great video, great playing. I got the blues feeling listening to you play. Nice slide work.

    Very nice. And glad to be of service (Although it might be nice if one day there was a manufacturer who thought it was a good idea to pay me for all this free promo ). I've started doing videos for my upcoming tutorial series with my Q2n and it's working out really well.

    Thanks Jim.

    I recorded a band rehearsal (in a tiny basement room, that is) and it turned out really well, even without any refinements regarding placement of the camera or instrument balance.

    (since it's not jazz at all I don't post it here, though)

    I was mesmerised by the pace and feel of the playing in your previous clip.

    Testing at night - trying to capture a moody atmosphere (what you hear in the background is not noise from a 78rpm record but rain):

    That's a beautiful take on a Blind Willie Johnson touchstone. Your intonation is impeccable, and the feel is spot-on. You've done your homework. Kudos, Sir!

    The lighting definitely enhances the mood. Well done!
