Summary: I definitely agree with a lot of reviewers on the stylishness and functionality of this camcorder. The still pictures are average, what you'd expect for the lens and sensor, however the videos are excellent. The f/2.2 aperture really works out well in low light, I researched all the cams in this price range and this was the widest. The swivel lens is excellent, you will definitely use it. I'm not a great touch-screen fan, but I must admit I kind of like it.
Summary: I bought this specifically to use as a dashboard cam because of the 1080p resolution at 30fps, low 2.2f stop lens for low lighting, compact size and swivel lens to adjust the POV out of the windshield. The touchscreen design helps in adapting the body to a cradle for easy mounting (a western digital passport cradle glued to a sticky pad and velcro strips on the cam). An 8gb micro sdhc class 4 will hold 55 minutes of video which is approx.
Summary: I had owned a Flip Mino and a Flip Mino HD 2nd Generation 8GB before buying this, and I will say that this is a better buy than the Flip Mino HD. Why? Well first of all the swivel lens is awesome. At first you are like meh...not that great...but it's really good. The video quality is a lot better, but in my opinion the Flip Mino HD performs better in low light as this camera kind of lags in low light.
Summary: Product seems easy to use, uploading files to computer is a snap with USB, also charging. Screen when shooting is small, no opportunity to zoom. Get a large SD card to have memory to shoot longer. The HD resolution is great and you can't beat the price. So slim, easily fits in your pocket. Everyone thinks it's a cellphone.
Happy that I upgraded from Flip to this for 1080p video, image stabilizer and mini-HDMI output

Summary: I was contemplating between HD camcorders, iPod Touch 4th Gen, Digital Cameras with video recording and this and am happy I chose the Samsung HMX-E10 to complement my Canon Digital Rebel XTi and SX210 digital cameras for great 1080p image stabilized video with easy to use UI and good design on the USB and mini-HDMI-ports. Video quality is great but not flawless as there's a tiny lag on videos with fast full frame movement but it's not as bad as with the Flip cams.
Summary: I was skeptical about getting one of these "pocket camcorder's" but was pleasantly surprised by ease of use and quality of the picture. I have enjoyed mine and love the fact that I can just place it in my front pocket and carry it with me most of the time. I really do not have any other complaints about the unit and although it has "motion stabilization" which is really helpful it is still somewhat difficult to achieve videos without some of the jitter.
Summary: This is my first digital camcorder, and I did a lot of searching before settling on it. After playing with it for a few days, I'm satisfied with my purchase. The built-in editing program leaves something to be desired, and I resorted to downloading several other programs to use along side of it. All in all, it's a useful little camcorder, and I'd recommend it to casual users.
Summary: I've tried several pocket HD camcorders over the past year or so: Creative Vado (3rd Gen), Kodak Zi8 and the Panasonic TA-1. I recently got my hands on the Samsung HMX E-10, however, and I think I've found a keeper. I'll just get right to the point and break down what I think about it: __________________ The Good: ** Solid low-light performance: I'm no video expert, so I can't give you a bunch of jargon.
