Very Disappointed

David McLeod, Amazon
28 April 2010
  • Summary: I purchased this device about six months ago expecting that I would be able to get 1080 quality video. This device is NON-FUNCTIONAL as a 1080 HD recorder. Recording at this level creates a video that records ANY motion of the camera or subject with such blur as to make it useless to any reasonable degree. The steady shot feature at this resolution is also ineffectual.

Impossibly small and very affordable HD camcorder

Kris, Amazon
23 April 2010
  • Summary: For the price of those nasty, digital-zoom, throw-away Flip cameras you can instead get this excellent camcorder with a surprising number of features and smooth 10x optical zoom. My observations exclude most of what other reviewers have already mentioned. You can set most optical settings manually, like exposure, aperture, shutter, and focus. Processing-wise you can adjust white balance, resolution, and quality manually.

Doesn't work well with Snow Leopards Quicktime X

Z. Bohl "zbohl", Amazon
21 April 2010
  • Summary: Pro's: - inexpensive - easy to use touchscreen menus. - compact - image quality is good enough considering price (no HD camera in this price rand should be expected to have good low light quality) if you need better low light for the same price then go with a standard def. camcorder with a CCD instead of a CMOS sensor. Cons: -The 720p video doesn't view correctly in Snow Leopards Quicktime X. The aspect ratio was stretched in width and smashed in height.

Would not recommend

Arnold G. Tijerina III, Amazon
25 January 2010
  • Summary: I bought the HMX-H100 because it was a 1080 camcorder at a reasonable price. The camera is easy to use for a consumer-oriented product. The software is pre-installed on the camera (Intelli-share) but can also be installed on your computer. Video quality was jerky (despite image stabilization) and it was not as crisp as it should have been. The auto-focus doesn't do well in action scenes also.

1080i setting gives really bad quality

Boff "Boff", Amazon
24 January 2010
  • Summary: I've had the camcorder for only a couple of days. I'm a glutton for punishment with these Samsung's. I also own the MX-10, the MX-20 and now this model. Each iteration of the camcorder (they are closely related in design, both inside and out) shows some remarkable improvements, but also some disappointing flaws. The only thing I'll speak to here is the 1080i performance. (This camcorder does not record in 1080p.

Almost there... So close... Would be there with a little better performance in low light

pestoseed, Amazon

  • Summary: This little guy is very easy to use, the touch screen is a snap, for the purposes of most types of video pushing the easy Q button will dial in the right settings for you, the antishake function seems to help rather than hinder. However, It's medium-low light handling is just bad. Indoors, even with what seems like plenty of light, turns out to be a very low signal to noise ratio for their CMOS sensor.

Keine Ahnung wie lange sie noch hält...

C. Schell, Amazon
25 November 2010
  • Summary: Ich habe die Kamera im Juni 2010 gekauft und war zunächst recht zufrieden damit. Ich drehe damit Tiervideos für YouTube und habe nicht die höchsten Ansprüche an eine Cam. Positiv: Die Kamera ist sehr leicht zu bedienen und auch für einen absoluten Neuling in diesem Bereich schnell einsetzbar. Sicherlich kann man noch mehr Rafinesse aus dem Gerät holen, aber mir reicht die Standardeinstellung absolut aus.

Bild super - Ton pfeift

Marc Brucker "marcbrucker", Amazon
19 February 2010
  • Summary: Ich habe von Amazon nun die zweite Samsung HMX H100P (Ersatzlieferung) zurückgeschickt. Ging ich bei der ersten noch davon aus, dass das hochfrequente Pfeifen im Hintegrund aller Aufnahmen ein Defekt sei, so musste ich bei der Ersatzlieferung das selbe feststellen. Es scheint sich also um ein "Feature" dieser Kamera zu sein. Leider, leider!

Gutes Preis-Leistungsverhältnis

Heinz-Walter Hommel, Amazon
6 December 2009
  • Summary: Zuerst sei einmal gesagt, dass der optische Zoom nicht wie beschrieben 5 x sondern 10-fach beträgt. Die Verarbeitung und die Bedienelemente sind gut ausgeführt, die Menüs auf dem touch screen sind übersichtlich und logisch angeordnet, jedoch sehr klein von der Fläche, mit großen Fingern etwas schwierig.

Видеокамера Samsung HMX-H100

kaddy, toneto.net

  • Conclusion: камера вроде неплохая, но уже через месяц начала пищать еле заметно но очень противно. Сдали в сервис, там сказали, что ничего не могут сделать... Но если не брать это, то вполне причилная - особенно если брать во внимание классную опцию TimeLapse - снимает кадр в нескольк минут - можно снимать как быстро меняются облака и т.д. и вообще камера легкая, небольшая, недорогая и легкая в использованиии с отличным ПО. Но ночью снимать не получится.
