Summary: I bought this camera, used it 5 times or less for work photography. It has been sitting comfortably on a shelf. I get the camer off shelf this week, open the viewer and it will not turn on! Samsung tells me its something with the cameras on/off system and will be 90.00 to fix it. Im extremely unhappy with this and Samsung. I own Samsung everything and now this. Not happy!
Summary: Great price, however, too small. I returned my Toshiba for this reason and got this one. It's even smaller! I am also very not into this touch screen thing, and if your finger tips are any larger around than a newborn it's very difficult and frustrating to operate the thing, as EVERY blessed command must be initiated from the touch screen.
Summary: It's light-weight, point and shoot, BUT we haven't been able to get our movies and pictures from the memory card on to our Mac laptops. So downloading is difficult. We use this same memory card for another company's digital camera and have no problem uploading, so we know it's not the memory card.
Summary: Right out of the box the camcorder wouldn't focus. I messed around with the settings for a few hours but couldn't make it work properly. Just a lemon I'm sure but I bought it for a wedding that was set for less than a week out. Amazon was good on the refund. I had to leave almost $50 on the table though because I paid for expedited shipping and that is not refundable.
Only a good camera for video outside on a sunny day, when there is no wind

Summary: Length:: 0:36 Mins Had this camera almost 2 weeks. It's ok outside in the sunlight if there is no wind. Any wind at all makes the video sound terrible. In the house without real bright lights the video is grainy. In 10 years from now when I want to watch video taken now I don't want to look back at bad quality. The first video camera I bought 22 years ago that used vhs tape has better indoor quality than this camera. Auto focus also works sometimes then sometimes not.
Summary: No possibility to buy external mic (don't exist); The sound quality is very poor; The camcorder doesn't have light. Use with sunshine if you want good images! (Não existe acessórios como microfone externo, nem entrada para microfone externo... o microfone interno da câmera é muito ruim, gravando bastante ruídos e a voz das pessoas não ficam naturais. Não existe iluminação própria...
Summary: I brought this camera last year for my girlfriends christmas present and it was a complete let down. She managed to get some videos of christmas and the following few days but just after the returns period had ended the camera started to play up and eventually stopped all together. I really wouldn't bother with this and get something a little more robust!
Summary: Se si spegne la videocamera dopo alcuni minuti di funzionamento la stessa non si riaccende fino a che non si raffredda e per raffreddarsi impiega 20-30 minuti.Mi sono rivolto al centro assistenza ma nonostante dicano di averla aggiustata la stessa continua ad avere lo stesso problema.
max. 15 Minuten ohne Störung - Schwache Farbintensität bei wenig Licht

Summary: Ich brauchte diese Kamera, um meine Vorträge und einige Kurse zur Selbstkontrolle aufnehmen zu können. Langzeitaufnahme ohne große Ansprüche an die Bildqualität war gefragt. Wie ich erst jetzt feststellen konnte, leiden alle Samsung Camcorder bis zur HMX-Q200 an dem Problem, nach 15 Minuten Aufzeichnung die Video-Datei zu speichern und eine neue zu beginnen.
Excerpt: Больше самсунг никогда не куплю, очень ненадёжная, одноразовая техника.
Pros: Дешовая, удобная , портативная.
Cons: Через год после покупки, почти не использованная камера сломалась. Не работает зум и фокус, кнопка меню не реагирует на нажатие. Вообщем прощай камера. Пол года назад накрашся почти новый фотик мыльница самсунг, а тепрь и камера, больше самсунг никогда не куплю.
