A great camera with one infuriating flaw

Inspector Gadget "Go Go Gadget Reviews", Amazon

  • Summary: I've been using the Samsung R10 to shoot my short movies for a over a year now. It's done me very well and has great resolution, a sort-of decent battery life, and quite user-friendly. But there is one thing, that drives me crazy: The upward-angled lens. Why? Who on Earth thought of this? Many of the promotional videos I watched before purchasing claimed that this was done for 'ease of use'. Ease of use? Are you kidding me?

Samsung HMX-R10 Alien Eye camera

subzeroblu, REVIEW STREAM
8 May 2010
  • Excerpt: Samsung did it again, with it’s new HMX-R10 aka Alien Eye (in my terminology). The HMX-R10 records is full HD and as a result the video quality is truly amazing. This is most likely one of the better ’small’ camcorders you can buy. Unfortunately though it only has a 5x zoom, which given todays’ standards and those of other, cheaper models isn’t anything to wow about. The camera has various recording modes among which 1920×1080 60i and 1920×1080p 30i.

Samsung HMX-R10 Camcorder

  • Excerpt: The tilted lens of the HMX-R10 Camcorder by Samsung has made a world of difference for me in the length of time I can now get in, when shooting acts. Seemingly tilted by about 20 to 25 degrees upwards, my wrists don’t get tired all that quickly anymore, as opposed to how it was with the use of my previous camcorder which had a straight lens.

  • Conclusion: I wish to differ with the reviewer's recommended hold of the Sammy R10. It's not easier to hold cradled like a flashlight, unless you take up-skirt shots! The design is ergonomic, not just to be "quirky". Holding the recorder like a standard design, you don't need to cock your wrist back. You don't hold the lens 25 deg lower than subject; the lens stays straight. Just hold the camera in your palm, with zoom control covered by the thumb.

  • Summary: Great camera overall. I liked the size. I like the picture quality overall, but it is a little bit grainier than expected for HD. The one flaw is the shaky-ness of this camera. You need steady surgeon hands even with the "anti-shake" set to "on". In a perfect world I'd like the cameras to come with steady cam built in. Everyone is tired of the "shaky-cam effect" in movies as it is...I don't need my personal stuff to look like outtakes from CLOVERFIELD.

Very good for a small camera like this.

  • Summary: Given that this thing fits into a palm of your hand I must say its very good. But don't expect professional movie quality videos out of it. I also wish it had a regular hand strap rather then the little loop thing. The buttons under your thumb are almost impossible to operate with one hand without dropping the camera (and I have rather large hands).

Outstanding

  • Summary: I will try and update this as I learn about all the features of this camera. Let's start with resolution. I have not figured out how to record at 1080p. The resolution settings go up to 1080i and then start to extrapolate to higher resolutions(I suspect all but brand new computers will have problems with this.) The video quality is the best of all the cameras I have tried.

Don't know yet

  • Summary: Incredibly small! Good quality. Does NOT have a hand strap, uses a little wrist strap instead. It makes holding it much tougher and getting to the buttons as well. Lots of settings up to FULL 1080p, future proofing your purchase. I still have an excellent Sony MiniDV which can shoot standard definition in a 16:9 format and still think think AVCHD has a ways to go. If you have a bluray burner and player, then it's a no brainer.

Samsung R10 - A camera to buy for specific reasons.

5 January 2012
  • Excerpt: "I came across the Samsung R10 by accident when just window shopping in a large retail electrical store. They were selling one without a box, leads or manual etc at a very low price. I have a hobby / business recording show videos and promos and I'm always looking out for video cameras and accessories at good prices to expand my equipment. What drew me to this camera (apart from the very low offer price) was its size. I could see that I could ...
  • Pros: Small, high quality and decent spec
  • Cons: Lens is angled so you hold this different to any other camcorder .
