Summary: I'am really pleased with my Samsung. It very competive with sony and Canon in the same price range. I got mine on Ebay so I got a lot of bang for the buck. You can do pro stuff on this not much but if you know what your doing it will fill that niche where you need HD but simple forest, downtown or well lit home.
Summary: I am getting in film production and needed something on the low end of HD. I went with the Samsung because I have a lot of their products and am quite pleasured with the quality and life. The camera is pretty good, n fact darn near impressive in natural day light. The images are super clear and crisp, especially greens. Inside is another story, if you have a lighting kit, it works perfect, but seeing that most of you wont have one, the images can get a bit grainy.
Summary: PRODUCT IS GREAT SALES TAX WAS SUPRISING BUT ALL IS OK I WOULD USE AGAIN I JUST DID NOT LIKE THA TAX SURPRISE AT THE END OF CHECK OUT IF I KNEW IN THE BEGINING I WOULD OF USED COMPUTER GEEKS THEY DONT CHARGE SALE TAX BUT A IS OK
