Excerpt: All in all this camera does take some pretty amazing footage, among the best I’ve seen so far for this style of camera. As a compact camera I found it a bit harder to carry around than other ones. It won’t fit n your pocket so I would advise you to get a proper carrying case for it to prevent any damages. A very valid little piece of technology, if you’re looking for a gift for yourself I’d suggest you start here.
Summary: I love this camera! I was weary about buying it because of how low the price was but after I purchased it and started using it I was amazed at how awesome it was for the price! I started showing people in my family how awesome this camera was and my sister bought one about a week after I showed her. I love the fact that it has 64 GB internal HD plus an SD card slot. The videos are in high definition and it looks better than any home video I have ever had experience with.
Summary: This is a nice tidy camcorder that takes great outside video. Fits perfectly in my hand. My limited experience with indoor recording was hit or miss when it concerned video quality. This camera only shoots in widescreen mode and also is not seamlessly compatible with Macintosh computers.
Summary: Unbelievably awesome! Great quality in all settings. The wide angle lens makes for a bit of funky looking video when posting to youtube un-edited but the quality is unparalleled in camcorders for anything except professional. Battery is ok, I'd recommend getting extras though for events longer than an hour.
Summary: I don't know if we are doing something wrong, but, no matter how still I hold the camera, the people moving when you play back the video make you dizzy. I would say it's horrible at taking any type of action video. Uploading it to Facebook is also poor- you can hardly see any of the video. Perhaps it is too HD. Unhappy.
Summary: It's so Samsung. H series is the camcorder having the fundamental of camcorders the most among Samsung camcorders. Adopting the high capacity/performance SSD, they suggest a new criteria. Better thing is that they've focused on the fundamental of camcorders. Not just by various functions which they emphasized, by Full-HD videos based on the OIS lens, they make up their late start.
SAMSUNG H-106, Great New Product... But be WARNED!

Summary: I have owned this Samsung HMX-H106 Camera for about 2 months and have enloyed using it. I like the ease of use and quality of the resulting picture... BUT there is a problem! I tried to use the included A/V cord to connect the camera directly to my HD TV and was surprised that the picture was in a blurry black and white!
Summary: Well, I'm going to keep this short and sweet. The video quality is really good, the focus is good, the lens is good. The editing software is built into the camera, and works well, if limited, and you'll need a decent PC to process the HD in real time. If you want to do multi-audio or video crossfades etc you'll need to convert the format to raw avi or similar and use Premiere or Vegas or similar.
Summary: I bought the hmx-h106 camera because every source out there touts it as a 1080p camera. It's not. I should have known when it didn't even come with the HDMI cable, and only component cables. If you read the fine specs on Samsung's website, it does clearly state that this is ONLY 1080i. And it barely does 1080i/30 without being grainy and jittery even in outdoor lighting. The 720p/60 is just so-so with a lot of grainy in even moderate lighting.
Summary: After dealing with 8MM tapes for 10 years (Sony Digital Handycam), I started investigating non-tape camcorders. Lots of inexpensive models to use from but I discoved the HMX-H106 at CES 2009. This is the first camcoder with Solid State Drive (SSD) technology. So why SSD as opposed to a Hard Disk Drive? SSD offers better performance, higher durability, is more lightweight, reduces power consumption and operates faster than a typical HDD.
