The ZOOM Q3HD is a revolutionary “Shoot and Share” video recorder that combines high definition 1080p video with high fidelity digital audio. The ZOOM Q3HD enables you to record 1080p high def video at 30fps and 720p high def video at up to 60fps.

To replicate the Q3HD’s performance you would need a comparable video recorder as well an addition audio recorder and the ability to sync them both up.
