Just happened on this and though its worth a blog. Zoom, the company that make one of the best Audio Field recorders for radio journalists the Zoom H4N have just announced a new product: the Q4.
Its a small HD video camera that shoots 1080p/30fps but is capable of recording stereo PCM Audio at 96Khz via its pop out X/Y config microphone. Things I like about it are the external mic in port, live streaming via USB connection (video or audio) and that they made it compatible with GoPro mounts!
This is not the first time Zoom have used their audio experience to add video into the mix, their Q2HD was an interesting solution for radio journalists who needed to record web video and more recently they introduced the iQ5 a lightning based microphone for iPhone 5/5s or newer iPads.
No idea of price yet but pop over to the Zoom website for more info. UPDATE *** Actually I’ve just spotted it on Amazon.com for $369
