Summary: Honestly I got to say.. not what i expected for 200 dollars. I bought this camera so i could record snowboard tricks and make viral videos. "NOT HD AT ALL". only records for a period of time before switching off the recording. Doesnt take the sound around us well. and u cant easily record urself.
Summary: When I bought this, I thought, "Hey, new camera." I got it... it did not come with a battery or a charger or anything else. I got a battery with a battery charger BUT when you plug it into the computer, it does IMMEDIATELY. This is the WORST purchase I have EVER made.
Summary: Well, perhaps you have read all the nice reviews about this camcorder. So had I. That is why there was no hesitation that this model was going to be my choice. However, reality played a nice trick. First thing out of the box, the smell of the plastic strap, that you use to hold the camcorder, is unbearable. Left in a room, it fills it up with foul chemical odor. With time, it will wear off. Perhaps.
Summary: I ordered this camera for a vacation to visit my family. When I received it, the LCD screen didn't work the first time I tried it. Dealing with Samsung customer service has been a nightmare. I know others have had better results, but now I've "owned" this camera for 2 weeks, had it in my possession for 36 hours, and have never been able to use it. For me, this is unacceptable for a brand new camera.
