Conclusion: This is by no means a bad effort from Samsung, and the HMX-U10 has a lot going for it – particularly the price. A unique design makes the U10 highly portable and the simple features should attract beginners. It’s not perfect by any means – the Flip Ultra is certainly better with regards to video performance, but as a simple point and click camcorder, the HMX-U10 has a lot of decent features that make it worth the entrance fee.
Excerpt: The pocket camcorder market is as popular as ever, because people want a simple and easy way to record videos on the go. As this market continues to mature, people are expecting higher resolution videos and additional features without taking away the ease of use.
Summary: The Samsung HMX-U10 looks cracking on paper, with higher-resolution video, stills, better price than the Flip. But these camcorders are about usability rather than pure power, and it's here that the U10 falls down.
Summary: The big guns have well and truly arrived in pocket camcorder town. What was once a playground for Flip and Creative is now a warzone for Kodak’s Zi8 , Sony’s MHS-PM1 and now Samsung’s debut, the 1080p U10. Its claim to fame is an angled, ergonomic design. The 7-degree bend in the body shape certainly gives it a unique profile, and makes it easier to frame video and take 10MP stills.
Excerpt: Piccola, compatta e ultrasottile, la Samsung HMX-U10 è la videocamera ideale da portare ovunque, in quanto entra facilmente in un taschino.
