    Zooms are excellent.

    I own the H4 and the latest H4N.
    These are excellent for in-board recordings as well as live performances with the built in mics.

    I LOVE these and you'll definitely love yours.

    I know these things have all sorts of capabilities, but can you use them just as a mic as you record into a computer with a webcam? I have an external mic now, but wanted to upgrade. I want a direct connection and don't want to have to import a sound file each take.

    How these work is you record onto an SD card.
    Importing will be a part of the process.
    Of course you can just leave it rolling and cut out what you dont need once you have the take you want (in an audio/video editing program).
    Then you would have to sync up your audio with your video in your vid. editing program in order to achieve what you are talking about here.

    Personally, I think the best options for video taking for YT is just using a real cam that has good sound. Just chop off what you cont want and convert it to flash (if YT doesnt do that for you..I dont know what they do).

    Of course the easiest method is to get one of the better webcams on the market that can record and upload directly to YT. You can get them for under $100.

    Don't know about the H2, but the H4N can...

    From the Samson/Zoom site

    "The H4n also functions as a USB audio interface, letting you record directly to either a Mac or PC."
