Excerpt: Consumer testers raved about the Samsung HMX H100 HD Camcorder
Pros: Comfortable to hold and very easy to use, Captures high-quality videos, even in low-light indoor settings and at night, Audio quality is very clear and loud, Even at 10x zoom, can zoom in on objects located less than five inches from the lens without losing focus, Playing back videos on an HDTV is easy to figure out, Captures high-quality indoor and outdoor photographs, When filming while walking, the camcorder’s image held impressively stable on a fixed object
