Word of warning about the camera's color for "blue" ones
22 October 2012
Summary: The camera itself works great and haven't had any major problems with it, but I have only had it for a few days, so time will tell. I just wanted to mention that the camera listed as "blue" looks purple (almost a dark pink) under soft household lamps, but in the sun it looks blue with a hint of violet. I thought I was sent the wrong color when I unboxed it in the house and it looked very purple, but noticed when I took it near a window, it looked blue, kind of strange.
Summary: Got the Samsung HMX-U20 to document spaces in my line of work. I thought the item itself was compact and just what I needed. I was right in that it was compact and it works great to documents spaces and more, but the con I had with this item was that when a space was dark, it did not adjust to compensate.
Summary: I suffered from the flip's limited storage (8GB) and short battery life.. So, I switched to the Samsung HMX-20 for the following reasons: 1) SDHC support: I have a couple of 16GB cards that I take with me when traveling; a computer is not needed. 2) Full HD. 3) Can be charged with bundled electric charger or when plugged to USB.
Summary: After a few days of usage I feel that its an ok product with scope for improvement. I bought it for its HD capability and the time-lapse mode. The clicking sound in the audio is of the autofocus mechanism (typical of point & shoot cameras) which goes away if the focus is not changing. Day time performance is pretty good. The built in s/w (no installation needed) for viewing things on a pc is also good.
Summary: I would say.. not bad...Here is the pictures I took under different kind of condition-[...]. All are shut in SMART/AUTO mode and there is not much night view cause it doesn't work well without enough lighting. I don't expect 170USD could have a professional sharp quality. But this one is compact and light, easy to carry on.
Summary: Ordered this camera and waited longer to get the red. In the picture the camera is a candy apple metallic red. The Camera is actually dark pink maybe magenta. Good thing this wasn'r for my son!!!!
Summary: I pre-ordered this camera back in April because of it's superior specs and features unheard of at this price level. It looked to have a better CMOS optical sensor that would pick up more light and work better in low-light situations, 3x optical zoom (a first for this type of camera), HDMI, rechargeable batter, stereo sound, 1080p, high-mega pixel camera for singles, plus it was brand-new technology, everything looked good.
Conclusion: С данным девайсом ездил на отдых, в принципе для съемки моря и прилегающих к морю тереторий в полне пригодная вещь. Отличным в данной камере, есть звук. Если качественая аккустика, то ощущение почти полного присутствия. Это пожалуй единственное что радует в этой камере. Наличие встроеного динамика, дает ...
Pros: Маленький и компактный девайс.
Cons: Для съёмки в темное время суток, абсолютно не пригодная вещь
Videocamera Samsung HMX-U20...apro la scatola e la trovo rotta !!
23 July 2010
Summary: In procinto di partire per le vacanze di Agosto ho acquistato circa un mese fa una videocamera tascabile ad alta definizione(HD). Tra tutte quelle che ho preso in considerazione (Kodak zi8, JVC Picso) la scelta è caduta sulla Samsung Hmx-U20 Questa videocamera offre un certo compromesso tra le dimensioni (più tascabile della Kodak) e sulla grandezza dello schermo di ripresa (2.7 pollici contro i 2 pollici della JVC).
Pros: compatta, elegante, zoom ottico a 5x
Cons: non saprei . . . la videocamera era già rotta quando ho aperto la scatola . . .
