Not great

Chocackley, Amazon
13 May 2013
  • Summary: we bought this for our daughter who enjoys making little videos and is pretty good at it. The controls on the camera seem pretty easy but they don't always work. You would need to push things several times to get them to work. One of the biggest issues was that you can actually hear the "click" of turning the camera on or off in the final video. We ended up retuning it and getting a sony handycam.

Microphone gain is set far too high

Charles S. Lang, Amazon
21 December 2012
  • Summary: The mic is only adequate for recording voices at low volumes; anything else causes the audio to distort badly. Live music -- even soft solo piano playing -- is out of the question. I have found several other reviews that mention the same problem. I have posted on Samsung's forums with the hope that a firmware update may be issued. I believe this is an issue caused by software boosting of the microphone volume. I will update this review if this problem is fixed.

Energiefresser im Mittelmaß

HSH, Amazon
26 November 2012
  • Summary: Auf der Suche nach einem kleinen, leichten Camcorder bin ich auf dieses Modell gestoßen - andere Kundenrezensionen suggerierten mir, dass ich hier nichts falsch machen könne. Allerdings habe ich den Camcorder inzwischen wieder zurückgeschickt: Die Akkulaufzeit war mit 60-90 Minuten absolut inakzeptabel (ich vermute, dies liegt am Touchscreen) und die Aufnahmequalität leider nicht berauschend.

La peor grabación de sonido que ví en una cámara de vid

Daniel, quesabesde.com
25 February 2008
  • Excerpt: Nunca ví una cámara que grabe tan mal el sonido, teniendo como parametro otra cámara que no es HD y tiene un valor mucho menor como la JVC Everio GZM 120, es ampliamente superior. Grabando un recital a un volumen bajo (se podía hablar) el sonido satura y recorta sin remedio. Realmente estoy sorprendido ya que hace 25 años que utilizo cámaras de video y nunca ví algo similar. El servicio técnico de la garantía ni la empresa me ofrecieron ninguna solución a mi reclamo.
