Excerpt: This review is for the Sampson FMX-90 HD Camcorder.Short story...spend a little extra and get a camera that performs well. I ordered this for my senior mother for her birthday, as she owns an older Panasonic that was unwieldy for her to use..
Pros: It's Compact, Sound is good
Cons: Poor Image Quality, Poor In Low Light, Poor Still Image
DON'T BUY IF RECORDING LONGER THEN 20 MINUTES AT A TIME!! Battery life was less then 2hrs minutes on HD. SUCKS.

Summary: UPDATE Its been about 12hours since I wrote this original review. I fully charged the camera. I had it set to HD, I hit record and it lasted for 109 minutes. This was with the screen open, which is the only way you can see what you are recording. If the screen was shut I'm sure it would last longer.
Restricted to 20 Minute Video Clips -- interrupts continuous videotaping

Summary: I'm afraid I'm going to have to return this camera because I realized after testing it that it automatically cuts your videos into 20 minute segments with a 5 second pause before it restarts recording. This is a fixed feature that is not mentioned in the specs. This makes it unusable for my purpose.
Summary: This camera did not seem to be the same as the one I looked at in the store. Audio was awful, could barely hear on playback after I talked directly into the speaker. Returned the next day for refund.
Summary: Let’s start with the Quick Start Guide included with the product. It is virtually useless. It is so small I cannot readily read it. In fact I had to get it scanned and blown up so I could read it. But to what end? I have more questions than answers. Why isn’t there a complete owner’s manual?
Summary: I returned this right after receiving it! Thankfully I tested it out before just taking it to record my daughter's school program, or I would have been very upset! It is a very poor picture quality, and when you go to play it back on the TV it is so poor that you couldn't even make out facial...
