Question about Zoom Q3hd Camcorder

Open Question

I have a Zoom Q3 camcorder. When I load a new 32 gig card, it wants to format it. I said yes. But it only records for about 1 minute

What am I not doing, or doing wrong with the formatting?

SOURCE: My zoom stop recording after one hour with plenty

Which firmware do you have? It should say on the screen when you turn it on. If it 1.10, or 1.0, you need to update the firmware by going to the Zoom support page:
http://www.zoom.co.jp/english/download/software/h4.php
Directions and firmware download is all there.
If you are already on 2.0 or 2.4, then try reformatting the card with the Zoom. This will delete anything on the card, so backup first!! Good luck.

Power button broke on zoom q3


There is a design defect in the zoom Q3 video/sound recorder. The power button is tiny and only held by three finite solder points that cannot take the regular force of one pressing on it. The solution is simple and permanent. Since the Samson tech Zoom Q3 comes part easy you have access to the part. The power switch falls of and stays inside. Get a fine tip soldering iron and resolver it, but the real trick is to put some liquid plastic support in behind the power switch and around it so that it will no longer be affected by the force of pressing it on and off.

How to use the video?


Not all cameras have video, but if yours does scroll through the menus and click video. Then to record simply press and hold the picture shooting button. same way to stop recording.
When doing this rememeber that audio is horrible so you will need to be close to your subject, and dont expect it to zoom in like a camcorder. you should instead move the camera slow smooth and deliberate. The slower the better. The focus is usually fixed in these cameras as well so no depth of feild focusing either. Video chew allot of memory too so unless you have a 32 gig card remember it will go fast.

When i try to format the SDHC 8GB memory card the recording screen display's (Waiting....) for about 1 to 2 second's, then goe's to the normal recording screen and when i push the record button it...


Hi, look here's what to do, get yourself, or access to, A Computer, and a USB SD card reader, now, insert your 8GB SD card into the reader/writer, It will show up as a HDD in My Computer, and then, Format it FAT32. Now return it to the Camcorder, when turned on again, the Camera NOW should "See" the SD card. You may even be asked if you wish to Format,again,say YES, and do so, if NOT asked that;s OK too. as, you should now be able to, in either case, be able to have access to the SD card, and can change your phone settings accordingly, the extra storage will simply be "Picked Up" by the Camcorders software.
If this doesn't happen, then there maybe a problem with THAT SD card or the Camcorder? try another SD card before thinking the camcorder has a problem though.

Panasonic PVGS-50D SD memory card


Check your manual for the max supported SD card size. Most likely it will either support a minimum of 2-4 gb :)

So yes you can get larger cards for your PV GS 50D

Need to delete memory


You need to remove the memory card from the camcorder and place it into a pc or photo shops computer. This will allow you to view the saved items on the memory card. You can then save these to disc and delete the contents on the card.

Zoom H4 Recorder Says, "Card Full!" But it is NOT!


I encounter this error with my 16 gb SD card and Zoom H4n.
I try to format the card inside and outside fo the Zoom, use 8 gb and 32 gb instead of 16gb card and, but get the same error.

But I find a solution.

1. I format my SD card inside Zoom with builtin utility. (Menu - SD Card - Format)
2. I reinstall Zoom firmware
(instruction and download here: http://www.zoom.co.jp/products/h4n/software/ )
3. I format SD card inside Zoom again.

I took a several test and didn't get a "Card Full" error.
