A Very Nice Surprise
mpsjazz, 05.04.2019
The sound quality is brilliant on this camera, and the video is quite fair. Indeed, it's really a high-end audio recorder with a tiny video camera added. As such, it's useful for musicians who want to make quick cost-free videos for test and demo purposes and sentimental reasons. It's more for use "on-the-fly", and is not a serious tool for producing professional/commercial videos, because without the benefit of studio quality equipment, a cameraman and an engineer, you'll never get the best results, and if you book pros, they will have their own tools.

But the demand for demo videos is unrelenting. They have replaced demo audios, and in some cases they have replaced business cards. Many of us musicians belong to several bands, and all too often, the latest band lacks the time and money to go to a studio. So then it gets sudden gig enquiries, always with a request for a demo video. Being able to make your own free videos expediently, is even better than being able to edit your own website. Freedom!

But it's only a tool (one that gives you some extra options) because you can make a simple video with very little. The most important issue is a good location, something which is so hard to find. If you can't get a good one, your music video will be naff, no matter what equipment you use. Wrong light, wind noise, traffic noise, bad acoustics, insufficient availability (you need several hours access) insufficient space away from eyesores - these are all killers to a demo video. Location gets easier if you are recording audio and filming video separately, but the whole point of this audio-video camera is making videos in one hit.

On XY mic setting, the recording field eliminates noise from behind the camera and even some of the side noise. And because you can get very close to the band (thanks to the extremely wide angle lens) that means that you can eliminate almost all background noise. Although some mobile phone cameras and mics are very good nowadays, they cannot compete with this noise elimination aspect! So, the Q4n is particularly good for acoustic instruments.

Vocals suffer on lightly amplified setups, because (from near the band) you get more of the acoustic instruments and less of the PA system. To record the PA better and get a more corporate sound, it might be best to move the camera further away; that's if space and background noise are not problems. I am returning my Q4n unit with a view to buying the 4-channel Q8 instead, so I can get a simultaneous feed from the mixer, or place additional microphones.

In the main, the Q4n is dead easy to use, but the screen is so small that I need reading glasses to use it, and the camera shakes too much if held by hand, so I use my old SLR tripod which is at least 20 times bigger than the camera. Maybe a mic stand with a round base or a monopod would be helpful, particularly in crowded places. Outdoors, the recordings can suffer very badly from any wind noise. In future I'll always use the wind shield, and perhaps my PA mics need them too, though that requirement has always been less obvious from the bandstand. I'd like to try filming in a well protected outdoor location like an enclosed courtyard/garden. Failing that, a hotel funcion room or an indoor stage are probably best.

If you use this camera and are disappointed by your videos. it's probably more because of your own preparation more than anything else. But even if the demo videos are flops, using these cameras is good training for making better videos in the future and for analysing and improving your band's sound and presence on stage.

Good sound
Andrew P., 23.01.2017
Great for recording music based subjects, wish it had a normal zoom instead of the zoom in stages, however it is very easy to use and the sound quality is fantastic, would recommend it.

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.
