Samsung QF20 SMART Full HD Memory Camcorder - Black

Summary: The screen on this unit does not work well at all. In many cases when pressing you get either inaction or it scrolls to the next page. After exactly 8 months and being used around 5 times for a total of around 10 hours, the screen froze and is now broken.
Summary: I really like the size and weight of the camcorder and it fit into my inside jacket pocket very easily so I could carry it around effortless without the need of a case. But, because it is small and fits in your palm, when you use it, it tends to be more sensitive to your handmovements.
Summary: Samsung produce some excellent AV equipment and sometimes some good phones, however in the HMX-QF20 they have decided to take the worst aspects of their worst phones and repackage them in a camcorder body.
Summary: The first thing i want to say is that it doesn't come as a complete package, there is no SD card and no HD lead, there is also no pouch or case to keep your lovely new purchase in. Its not a cheap make and I would have thought a SD card and case are a must.
Summary: This Samsung camcorder is a bit of a mixed bag. It is small for a camcorder which makes it easy to carry, but also makes it harder to get shake free video. The build quality is not great for a product retailing at this price. The flip out screen is small, the touch functionality is poor.
Summary: While I must admit that my experience with camcorders is limited to the ancient one my parents use to own, I found the Samsung QF20 SMART to be light and very easy to use. The quality of the HD picture is good (although it does get a bit grainy in extreme zoom and in low light).
Summary: Very disappointed with this offering from Samsung, expected a lot better. Once you've got past the gimmicks, there really isn't a lot to this. Low light level performance was bad, very grainy. Photo's were even worse. Playing sound back on the TV was distorted, although on the PC it was better.
