Summary: I was looking to upgrade from the Digital8 camcorder I've been using for about a decade. I don't do a ton of filming but I wanted it to take decent quality video and be easy to use. I chose the Samsung Q10 based mostly on Samsung's reputation and the price point.
All things considered...It is a good little HD camcorder
8 January 2012
Summary: Purchase: My wife and I are new parents and were looking to document our daughter and her rapidly growing bag of 'new tricks'. My wife doesn't care if we have an HD camera but seeing as I bought it for her, we got something HD. I wanted a decent HD camera for a blockbuster price.
Summary: Image quality is good, nice vibrant colours, great HD movie quality. But autofocus is really slow and takes a long time to lock on focus especially when object moves which resulted in some video clips taken having many seconds that was out of focus.
Summary: I purchased this camera in hopes that I would get better video quality than what I get with my Canon Digital Elph using a 32gb SD card. Unfortunately, the Samsung HMX-Q10 doesn't hold a candle to my Elph.
Summary: Samsung Has made a good product but falls short in product QC Things about this camcorder I love, It is Discrete! Easy to hold and a wonderful ultra compact size!! great zoom for subjects up to 10feet away. has sleek profile nice 2.7" screen!
Summary: Pro . . . - EXTREMELY easy to use (press button, set your zoom) - overall, "FOR THE PRICE POINT, and only for general HDTV motion picture recording," (not still photography) it's better than most in this price range - I was glad to have it on a recent trip to Alaska - it is awesomely portable - easy...
Summary: The quality of the video is excellent, however, on initial playback on a computer, the video seems "choppy" because of the large files sizes, and probably a slower computer. Playback on the unit itself, or if the files are burned to a DVD is very good.
Summary: I had become dissatisfied with the video quality of my cheap SD camcorder, so I decided to upgrade. I'd seen an article about the Samsung HMX-Q10 in an online magazine, and it looked interesting.
