HD qualitywhn used with a class 10 card

Royce Emley "Rawice", Amazon
23 February 2013
  • Summary: The video quality from it's 7.8 meg a pixel is great when used with a good card. A good card is a Class 10 SD card. It does time lapse which can be handy and has a 3x optical zom. Take the bare MPG4 files and use them with ConvertX toDVD program and the DVD will look like it was done by a pro..

Nice Try

D. Mastros, Amazon
19 November 2011
  • Summary: Nice design, very compact, and light weight... and that would be the end of what I like about it. The camera is sub-par. The motion stabilization is ineffective. Low light is atrocious. Software was clearly an afterthought. Battery life is bad.

  • Summary: Please Please Please don't waste money or time with this camcorder. In a nutshell, The Video is terrible, they list this as a 7.1 mp camera but my cell phone shots look better, not to mention my phone has a flash. It seems like samsung rushed production of this model. "E"

  • Summary: Clicks when recording. Autofocus makes an audible clicking as it records which is heard in playback. Bad design. Samsung should have better quality control.

Useless if you have a Mac

Karla P., Amazon
10 March 2011
  • Summary: This item was on backorder for several months. When it finally came, there were no instructions at all. A CD came with it, but it's not compatible with a Mac. I had to buy a memory card, so that was an added, wasted expense. I called Samsung for a User's Manual, and they blew me off.

at present, a half-baked product

afejer, Amazon
10 March 2011
  • Summary: initially i was taken by the camera's sexy look and colors and since it was for the family, i ordered it. i should have listened to my gut feelings though, when its release date got pushed back and back again - but i thought they are just fine-tuning the last little details.

Samsung Couldn't Fix It So They Sent My Money Back

Scott V, Amazon
24 January 2011
  • Summary: The unit recorded a thumping sound with every video. I sent it back, and Samsung didn't even bother to send me a replacement unit, they just sent me a check! WOW. I hope my $2400 Samsung fridge does not start making funny noises!

Not Happy

C & C, Amazon
28 December 2010
  • Summary: I received this for Christmas. The specs on this this camera are great. Unfortunately the video recording quality is terrible. The images have the detail, but it looks like there is a film or noise over the entire image. The recording looks no better than our HI-8 SD recorder. Very disappointed.

Couldn't see anything B. Couldn't hear anything (when the camera is being zoomed in and out the volume cuts out) C.
