[RNLD] re: Video - Handycam or Zoom Q3HD

Dear RNLD list,

I am at present in North East India, where members of the language communities are busy making recordings. Up to now we have preferred to use the Zoom Q3HD for video, rather than buying a commercial Handycam, because the sound is supposed to be much better. However the picture doesn't seem to be, and the shape of the Zoom is not necessarily the best for taking video of events (though fine if you set it on a stand for video of a story!)

So I am wondering what people on the list think about the option of purchasing a handycam of similar cost to the Zoom Q3HD and making a simultaneous audio recording on the Zoom H4n? Or is there a better option available?
