Summary: I bought this product because the reviews on it were great. So far I love the camcorder as it takes great video and is nice and steady. I did deduct one star from the Picture/Sound tab because there is a faint noise the microphone picks up while taking video. However I already knew about this before I bought it and a simple firmware update from the Samsung website fixes it. It also has a time-lapse recording feature that most don't have which is awesome.
Summary: This will be a real simple and short review. I bought this camera to create videos for storm chasing, school projects, and for my YouTube channels. I must say I am MORE than happy with this product. The image quality is fantastic and the zoom is perfect. I record in 720p and I uploaded some videos to the Amazon image previews to demonstrate the amazing quality. It's compact which is great for travel and for recording when you aren't supposed to.
Summary: Good afternoon. receive a coordinated greeting from Venezuela, I on the 20th of December of the year last I made a purchase. but since I made the purchase, after I go through customs in Miami and Customs Venezuela today February 12 I received my package. there is one problem that my package came without the memory card. think when I made the purchase told me that the video camera comes with a memory of 16 GB, not brought.
Summary: We got this at a great price and then we paid for it. I had the camera for 3 weeks before I finally came to my senses and sent it back. The video quality wasn't what I was hopping for. Low light was terrible. And worst of all I couldn't load it onto my Mac. THIS CAMERA IS NOT COMPATIBLE with iMovie so it does not work on a Mac. I bought a Canon VIXIA HF M300 and there is no comparison.
Summary: Certainly for the price I have no complaints. This is a great camera for 99% of the people that will buy it. I've used this camera, along with a 202, to shoot instructional videos and aerial footage. The fact that the camera stops briefly every 29 minutes or so to transfer data to the flash drive/card hasn't been a problem... and it appears that you don't lose even a frame of action, but it remains a slight concern.
Summary: Pros: - 9 different types of quality & resolutions. 480, 720, & 1080 pixels with Normal, Fine, or Super Fine resolutions settings. - 60 fps video recording at all times. This allows you to do 50% smooth slow motion with an editing software. - Great lighting in darker scenes. Though video quality gets a little degraded. - Nice optical image stabilizer. - Can take pictures while video is recording. - 16GB's of internal memory. - SD card slot.
Summary: When I drowned my previous Camcorder at the beach, I realized that paying more does not make any sense. I wanted something simple, reasonably priced, with great videos(1080p), and good pictures(good to view on a computer - ok to print). Found this at Amazon. Have been using this product for last 6 months. For the price this is a great product. It is bit small in my hand, and took some practice to use zoom (it is too sensitive).

Summary: I bought this camera brand new from QVC and it's incredible! You simply can't find full HD quality camera at this price anywhere! And Samsung is amazing as always with the added features. People who aren't getting 100% satisfaction from this camera probably didn't read the instruction manual on the CD and didn't enable the enhanced features, like super fine video recording and ultra sharp pictures.
