Summary: We bought this camcorder to celebrate a new baby in the family. It has been easy to use, though we haven't asked too much of it. We are very happy with it, though the still photographs don't replace the quality of our trusty Nikon Coolpix. This week I grew more appreciative of the Intelli-studio software that comes loaded on the device. I used the software to convert the .mp4 video file to .wmv file with a simple right-click.
Summary: I love it easy to use but the program does not work with windows 7 and there is no patch to fix it but it loads on the computer as a small flash drive so you can still click and drag/save on your computer. It is a little blurry zomming in unless you have great light! Great and easy to use.
Summary: Can't believe this camera has no lens cap. I am terrified of scratching the lens. The camera is easy to use as far as filming, and the quality is decent for picture and sound. Dowloading is a different story. Middle aged eyes can hardly make out any of the buttons on the camera, and the menu toggle is very difficult to get right. Even my tech savvy 14-year-old got frustrated with it. He has tried to burn me a DVD of a church program I recorded, but no luck.
Summary: Overall this is a good, inexpensive camcorder with good image quality. I purchased it mostly for the time lapse function so that I could figure out how bugs were getting into our house. The time lapse worked great, and is a cool feature, but I still don't know how they are getting through the window. Pros: It's a small, palm sized recorder (considerably smaller than I was expecting), and is light and easy to hold.
Summary: We purchased this camcorder for our 17 year old daughter who will be spending 2 months in Japan this summer. We wanted something small, easily portable, and easy to use. After receiving the camcorder we gave it to her and told her to "play with it" to see if it would work for her trip. Without even opening the manual she charged, set up, and begain using the camcorder. She is thrilled with it and the test videos she took with it look darned good.
Summary: I have had my C-14 for a week and a half now, and am very pleased with the size and all the features. I am still struggling a bit with the on-line instruction book, but am getting there. One small tip which may only be me, but when you jog the control button to create settings,etc, be sure to us finger or fingernail to push UP or DOWN, etc. At first I was just PUSHING the directional button down and got nowhere except frustrated and ready to start drinking again.
Excerpt: Salve a tutti, la samsung smx c14 è una videocamera cosiddetta "flahcam" in quanto registra su schede di memoria e sulla memoria interna. il non dovere ricorrere a miniDVD o a miniDV ha consentito a Samsung di realizzare una videocamera veramente piccola e leggera, veramente portatile. le sue dimensioni (così come l'ottima estetica) sono il primo aspetto che si nota appena aperta la scatola.
