I recently got a Zoom H5 for my church to record the services (I'm the sound man & lead guitarist there).. While learning how to use it, I took it to a couple of my club/bar gigs. I got some of the best "live" recordings I've ever gotten using that recorder!
You can record using the 2 external mic's, plus you have 2 direct XLR-1/4 inch inputs. So you have the stereo track from the mic's and 2 other tracks that record on 2 separate tracks that you can mix on the unit or dump it to your computer and mix them in you DAW.
So I sat the H5 on top of the speaker, had a board mix and then my guitar (of course) Picked up the bass pretty good. I'll probably see about borrowing it again in the near future or buying one for myself. You can hear the tracks I recorded in the "Audio" section here on Z-talk(here: ztalk.proboards.com/thread/66713/tele-paisley-drive-wreck-withers ).

Looking at the Q4 and Q8, seems like a good jump for for me as the only video camera I have right now is an old Canon that uses mini-dv tapes! I have been reading other reviews of the Zoom and seems mixed bag - will try to get my hands on one or might just order one to play with - esp if there is a good return policy if it doesn't work in low light.

GuitarZ: Okay. Audio didn't work on PC the other day when sampling some forum videos. Reset the drivers. Wa La! Wasn't working again last night. Ugh! Just dawned on me. I turned my speakers off two nights ago. Doop!
