Very good camera with OK video
AlexTello, 06.11.2020
This is an excellent option for musicians, drummer in my case, that want a good solution for their live recording needs.
The sound quality is top of the line, specially in very noisy scenarios. I can mount it next to the hi-hat! and still does not clip, provided you set up correctly.
The video is OK, nothing spectacular, but is good and the lens is pretty wide.
The battery life is around 4 hours of continuous recording and the X-Y microphones are just a beauty.
Its small and super portable.
Little bit pricey but I think it pays for itself in terms of usability, portability and quality.
Recommend it fully with all my heart.

Outstanding little camera
NXP Bass, 13.07.2020
This is a great camera, super practical and easy to use.
I have loads of samples here if anyone is interested: small pieces of criticism:
- I record via XLR DI and it's sometimes hard to control peaks without loosing recording volume
- A remote control would be great

Perfect device if you know what you want
15.03.2016
I am using Zoom Q8 already some month and I have used it for recording dialogues from distance of 3-4 meters, but also lectures from 10+ meters. I am always using a shotgun mic SGH6 (optional, sold separately) and I am very satisfied with the part of the recording that is most important in my context - sound. Gain is adjustable, there is possibility to monitor sound input, also use low pass and some other filters. Very good option is also a possibility to add different exteranl mics and adjust them separately.
Sony cams what I was using earlier Sony HDR PJ810 gave perfect video quality but sound was always poor. Here are some issues with video, but no messing with sound.
Cons:
Video zoom is adjustable in 5 steps,
If you want really good video quality, you have to use at least 1080/30 24 Mbps then have large memory card really well (max capacity accepted by cam is 128GB)
If you record backlit profile 1080/30 16Mbps then sometimes half your nose or lips will disappear:)
Since lens are really wide, then even with smallest zoom level there is remarkable distortion at edges
But if you need good sound quality, and you are not so demanding about video, then Zoom Q8 is the best choice!

Good camera for "in the field" video recording
Ivan E., 02.11.2015
I'm a drummer, so I mainly used camera to make videos for myself. On some occasions I took it to shoot the concerts. The camera works perfectly! Well-made, really good quality. Battery time is enough to shoot over 2 hours in the best quality (32GB SD card), touch screen is handy and adjusting mic to the noise level is easy with blinking indicator.

However, by no means this is a camera to make music videos, because it has only wide angle lens without any possibility to change it. The quality of picture even on the best possible setting is poorer than of DSLR cameras (lenses again). We were using several cameras to shoot music videos in the field in the morning. In the end footage from this camera could only be used for bloopers.

Therefore, use this camera for: videoblogging (it also works as a webcam), short overview videos and other draft/in the field work (like going around the shop and checking out cymbal sounds). Do not use for any serious production (like music vids or interviews), the picture quality is good, but not up to the standard. Although it can be used for recording audio and later mixing it together with video, but you don't need Q8 for that, can just use H6.

The multitracker is a great tool for musicians of all levels. It really can be a ‘studio in a box’ replacing many of the components of a traditional studio.
