high end Camcorder

robert l., Newegg
26 September 2011
  • Summary: pretty expensive camera but you get what you pay for. I am extremely satisfied. I would suggest the extra warranty. I have had no experiences with Samsung customer service but I see numerous reviews of bad experiences. I own other high end Samsung equipment and never had any problems. Again..
  • Pros: My first high end camcorder and I am not dissappointed. It takes beautiful 1080P full HD quality pictures and movies. The large 64gb solid state drive is plenty big for the average user but with the card slot you would be hard pressed to fill it. The digital zoom gives great up close and personal...
  • Cons: This is not really a con but there is a learning curve to operate thru the menu.....LOTS of features and not for the average user to just use and enjoy. It took me awhile to get comfortable navigating the menu. The unit powers up when you open the fold out screen which is great but doesnt power o...

Great HD camera as well as Amazon.com price!

NewYorker, Amazon
29 November 2010
  • Summary: I was searching all data on HD camcorders and basically, as most consumers, looking for the range in which I can afford. When I first searched for the camcorders based on performance, features, storage capacity, the ranges came up and above $900+. This was out of my range.

  • Summary: The user manual says in 3 places they recommend the use of the camera from AC power. My does not do it and customer service said it's not advisable to run the camera on AC power. With only 1.5 Hrs of recording what good is 64GB of memory?

Nice camera!

  • Summary: I like this camera for the fact that is uses an SD card. I've had Hi-8 tapes, Mini-DVDs, and now this. This is the simplest form of recording yet. I love it! It's easy very easy to use and the pictures are sharp (HD). Transferring files is such a snap now!! I would very much recommend this camera.

Worst Warranty for price of camcorder

Paul L, Amazon
7 June 2010
  • Summary: Samsung is the only camcorder manufacturer that I've purchased from that doesn't have a one-year labor and parts warranty. The LCD screen one day started to have all these black lines and spots in the center and sides on the display after 5months and I called Samsung to request a repair and was told...

  • Excerpt: Купил это "чудо техники", и пару месяцев пользуюсь. Что можно сказать, камера давольно удобная, правда не под мужскую руку, когда во время сьёмки хочешь сделать фото, то давольно сложно нажать на спуск, отличный дисплей, правда сенсорный (что не всем нравится) но привыкаешь.
  • Pros: Классное видео и фото
  • Cons: Хилый звук

  • Excerpt: Аппарат достойный внимания "полупрофессионалов" и любителей. Рекомендую. Был бы благодарен за помощь в сближении вышеуказанного аппарата с Макинтошем.
  • Pros: Качество картинки и фотоснимков.
  • Cons: С Макинтошем не дружит. ; Субъективно слабоват стабилизатор. ; Болезнь Самсы - отсутствие аксессуаров и особенно запасных аккумуляторов!

  • Excerpt: Камера стоит своих денег.
  • Pros: Фактически профессиональная камера в компактном корпусе. К качеству съемки нет ни малейших претензий. Эргономика, удобство, управление - все просто прекрасно. Нет, после всего, что у нас было работать с этой камерой - просто сказка. Буквально все делает сама. ; Снимали в походе ночью при свете ко...
  • Cons: Если стараться придраться и искать недостатки, то и верно - хорошо бы побольше памяти. Аккумулятор ни разу нас не подводил, но в теории - хотелось бы, чтобы он работал подольше.
