When I do the Vlog for Octave Music I use the Zoom Q8. The Q8 offers High Definition video with High Resolution audio. I find that the audio is much better quality than the video, as Zoom is known for it's audio products. I have recorded everything from personal family videos, vlogs, product reviews, and even live concerts. It handles high SPL very well. I love it's light weight design and portability. Admittedly if you are looking for the absolute best picture quality, this is not the camera for you, but if you are looking for something with good video and excellent sound, this is hard to beat. It comes with an XY stereo mic, and two additional XLR inputs. You can also purchase add on mics that swap easily with the XY stereo mic.
