Purchased January 2014.

You can't charge and record at the same time, and the batteries only last about two hours, so extra batteries are helpful. You can find Samsung SLB-10a style batteries fairly cheap.

Like the Zoom H1, when you replace the batteries, you often have to reset the date and time.

Records in about 3.2 GB chunks at a time, meaning you have to concatenate. File naming convention:

ZOOM0003.MOV
ZO010003.MOV
ZO020003.MOV

History

Noticed my original Zoom battery was stuck. Managed to pry it out with two screwdrivers. It was very pregnant.

Upgraded firmware to 1.10
