Thank you for pointing this out.
I'm looking at this device, and I think this really good. It seems like it will be easy to use, and seems like it will deliver very good audio. The video should be good; HD... The video might be the weaker feature here, but at this price point - what is it $150 - $160? I think item this may turn out to be quite popular.

Zoom's focus has always been on audio over video given a fixed amount of money.

josbourn1:

I'm having the same problem here. Can't power up using the USB port, although this worked fine at first. I wonder if this is a common issue. Very frustrating, bc I love the camera otherwise for recording band rehearsals and gigs.

Two dead USB ports, three if you count the original and replacement USB ports that failed for josbourn1.

Guys, I hope both of you, josbourn1 and tbundick, will keep the rest of us updated. Hopefully Zoom received a batch with weak USB chips, worked with the chip manufacturer to get the issue identified and resolved and has good replacement product on hand.
