Samsung HMX-R10 HD

CNET
3 May 2010
  • Summary: The Samsung HMX-R10's plentiful shooting features and fine-quality HD video for its class--at least in good lighting--make it a very good compact HD camcorder. However, its design definitely isn't for everyone.
  • Cons: No lens protection; touch-screen manual controls difficult to use; lots of noise in low light video; slippery body; no mic and headphone jacks or accessory shoe.

An Angled Lens Makes for Comfier Grip on Samsung Camcorder

Wired
9 November 2009
  • Excerpt: Samsung puts HD video and 9-megapixel stills in the palm of your hand without straining your wrist. Its lightweight SD/SDHC-recording R10 makes a game effort at shifting the handheld videocams paradigm by taking a more laid back approach. Designed with a 25-degree recline, the canted lens makes high and lowshots a lot easier on your right wing.
  • Pros: Smart design: The lens is angled up at 25 degrees to make it more comfortable to use. Slick, swiveling 2.7-inch touchscreen is a terrific command center. Lots of manual and creative controls — like image sensitivity and frame rate. Records to SD/SDHC memory cards. Shoots 9-megapixel stills.
  • Cons: Poor low-light sensitivity. No headphone or external microphone jacks. Stills and video a bit noisy. No lens cap or hand strap.

Samsung HMX-R10 HD Camcorder Review

Futurelooks
4 September 2009
  • Excerpt: Earlier this year, I had the opportunity to meet with Samsung at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. One of the more unique products that I was shown was none other than the Samsung HMX-R10. The specs make it sound like any number of other HD digital camcorders, but this thing does at least one thing differently.

Samsung HMX-R10 review

Stuff.tv
26 June 2009
  • Summary: Aside from the recent wave of ‘pistol-grip’ shooters, camcorders have stuck resolutely to the traditional horizontal form factor. And with good reason – for most people and situations, it’s a comfortable way to shoot video. But Samsung thinks it’s got an even better solution for our wrists – the HMX-R10, which has a lens that tilts upwards at a 25-degree angle. The result is certainly eye-catching, if initially baffling.
