Disappointing from the get go

Dr Watson "Gizmophreak", Amazon
12 January 2014
  • Summary: This camera sounds great when you read the specs and given so many positive reviews. But let me tell you that I have owned this camera for a few years, maybe 4 or 5, and it's not without some important problems.

Otherwise capable camcorder marred by a fatal flaw

TechMSS, Amazon
14 May 2010
  • Summary: This Samsung camcorder is delightfully fun to use, and takes pretty good quality video considering its low cost. There is only one problem, and unfortunately, it is a fatal flaw. Because of this flaw, I cannot recommend this camcorder.

Low end camcorder

C. Iancio, Amazon
25 August 2009
  • Summary: I have owned the camcorder for one day and I can tell I am quite disappointed with the quality of pictures and movies. First I wanted a small easy to use camcorder to replace my old 8 mm Sony and this Samsung is small but not better.

Awful DVD Picture, Frustrating to Convert!

Amazon
15 August 2009
  • Summary: After all the reviews I read here, most of them reveling in the video quality of this camcorder (hey Consumer Reports loved it too), I decided against going to the Sony HDR-CX100, which can Record and burn in both HD and SD, and costs only about $100 more than this hunk of junk.

Ugh,

Jeffrey S., Newegg
7 August 2009
  • Summary: If you are a proud mother who wants to capture your son's graduation on film from a hundred feet away, this is the camera for you. It is very simple to set up and use if you have even the most basic camera skills, and you probably don't care TOO much about losing a few seconds here and there or...
  • Pros: Battery life is a full three hours and is accurately timed Small, lightweight, easy to hold Built-in LCD is clear and easily visible, even in bright daylight Auto-focus and auto-exposure quick and accurate Roomy internal storage
  • Cons: Video capture is terrible, any motion at all on-screen results in visible horizontal lines caused by interlacing Zoom is at a fixed speed — you cannot choose to zoom more quickly or more slowly than at the sluggish pace it defaults to Occasionally stops, then starts recording again with no indica...

Enttäuscht

Martin Müller, Amazon
10 April 2010
  • Summary: Ich habe mir den Camcorder in guter Erwartung gekauft und war enttäuscht. Das einzige gute was ich zu dem Gerät sagen kann ich, dass es durch den internen Speicher viel Material aufnehmen kann ohne immer wieder eine Karte einstecken zu müssen und dass der Bildstabilisator sehr gut funktioniert.

Bin gar nicht zufrieden!

Schibe "Misterminit", Amazon
10 December 2009
  • Summary: Leider kann ich die zum Teil sehr guten Bewertungen nicht nachvollziehen. Ich hatte schon 3 Mini-DV Camcorder, bevor ich dieses Gerät gekauft habe und bin richtig erschrocken.Mein erster Camcorder hat vor 7 Jahren um Welten bessere Filme gemacht.

16:9 Filmformat bearbeiten schwierig

Willi Blum "whoami", Amazon
9 December 2009
  • Summary: Das Filmformat MPG-4 (16:9) ist leider nicht mit jedem Schnittprogramm einfach zu verarbeiten. Die mitgelieferte MediaShow ist kann zwar damit umgehen, ist aber von den Funktionen her sehr beschränkt und kaum brauchbar.

YouTube Modus nur 3:4

Nicolae Pollak "nkallop", Amazon
8 December 2009
  • Summary: Qualitäten wie in den vorgehenden Rezensionen sind OK. Die Filme werden aber von den Standardabspielprogrammen auf 3:4 zusammengedrückt. Nur das mitgelieferte CyberLink zeigt die Videos 16:9. Youtube verzehrt die 16:9 Videos auf 3:4. Die Web Einstellung erzwingt Verhältniss 3:4.

Toller Preis, schlechtes Bild

Alfaromea, Amazon
3 August 2009
  • Summary: Ich habe die Cam heute bekommen und habe mich wirklich anfangs sehr über das Gerät gefreut. Gesucht habe ich eine kleine handliche Kamera, die gute Bilder liefert und mit der ich schnell und unkompliziert Videos vom Nachwuchs aufnehmen kann.
