Summary: Bought this for my wife last Christmas. Have been using it every holiday and special event. It is easy to use and has great picture quality. The swivel display is a great tool when your trying to get into the picture or showing someone what you are recording. The menus are easy to read and use. Item shipped fast and was actually early.
Summary: Bought this one last X'mas for my sister. She was shocked by the picture quality. I have a JVC one, but I think Samsung one is better. And it comes with 32GB storage space. You don't need to buy SDHC card for it. And the software comes with it is very easy to use too. Just connect it with your computer, and then it will ask you to install the software. I don't know how they make it. Maybe it has been stored inside the machine. There is only one issue about the battery.
Summary: The camera has a very good picture quality in bright light. If the lighting goes down so does the quality of the picture. Poor in low level lighting. The still camera has a hard time focusing. If you need a video camera with a good still camera, this is not for you. Other than that its easy to use and a great picture in good lighting. Love the flash memory.
Summary: This is a low value camcorder. It has no AV input, no microphone input, no built in light, no quick review, no viewfinder to use when the sunlight is too bright to see the lcd screen. No s-video output, no FireWire port, and no headphone output to make sure your capturing the sound you want. A lot of no's for a camcorder selling in the higher end price range.
Summary: I spoke with Samsung and confirmed that this camera does not do 1080 at 30p or any other progressive scan mode. After going through several levels of support and pointing them to their own website, I was told by a Product Specialist that the description of this camera is incorrect on their website (and on Amazon) and is actually the description of another product.
