    So, I picked one of these up. Have only had the chance to record one thing with it. Used the "Line In" because it was late. Looks and sounds pretty decent. I'm going to do a "live" recording with the mic to see the difference.

    Guitar playing isn't the best, as I wasn't going for anything special.

    Here's the live cut recorded through the camera's mic. Used the HT-5H through a Laney 2x12 cab. Drums are coming from the Zoom HD16 through the monitors. Sound pretty decent.

    I like it for making quick videos and such. I think it'll be good if I ever get into a band and want to make videos of us playing.

    I made another video. The mix isn't the best, but I think it sound decent.

    I have one and like it pretty well. It is not like mic'ing up my guitar cab with the Heil PR-30 but is decent. I did a recording last Monday of the Mustang. I have one from my daughter's dance recital posted as well

    I have one. Haven't used it in a while to record something quality, just ****ing around with an instrument.

    But this got me 8.4k views (so far)

    :dude: It's a nice camera, very good audio quality for what it is.

    Just got one myself and am totally impressed with the sound and video quality. Takes some getting used to, but here's an audio clip from earlier tonight trying to get a good pedal sounds. Didn't want to mess with the tripod and distances so went the lazy route. I had it set to low gain at about an inch from the cab, slightly off center.
