Summary: Got this for my wife for her birthday. It has excellent audio pickup and the quality of the picture is decent. The zoom is fantastic and will see a lot of use. I don't think the anti-shake function or whatever it is really does anything so hold it steady!!
Summary: I like it very much easy to use. Once you have the battery charged you have an instant use of the cam. Also, the videos download quickly to the computer. The only thing that I dislike is if you have shaky hands or of what ever your video taping the video comes out with lines (distorted). But it dose have it button for those who have shaky hands, I pressed it but the video still came out tiny bit distorted. Other wise the cam. is a great purchase and great for traveling.
Summary: I've had this camcorder for around 8 months and have not had a problem. It's easy to use and easy to handle. THE BATTERY PACKS GIVE YOU ABOUT HALF THE AMOUNT ADVERTISED, BUT, YOU CAN RUN IT WITH THE AC CORD IF NECESSARY. The batteries recharge fairly quickly. IF YOU'RE LIKE ME BUY AT LEAST 2 EXTRA BATTERIES AND HAVE THEM ALL FULLY CHARGED BEFORE AN UPCOMING EVENT. ASIDE FROM THAT I REALLY LIKE MY SAMSUNG CAMCORDER. GREAT SIZE AND GREAT VALUE FOR THE COST!
If you need a basic point and shoot without HD, this is for you

Summary: Was looking to upgrade from my mini DV. Only requirement was not to use tapes or memory cards. A big selling item on this was the fact that it has 16Gb internal flash. I was leery of getting one with a hard drive, because of the possibility of the camera being dropped one day by accident. This has no moving parts. I was surprised by the small size. It has a swivel grip, making it easy to find a comfortable position when filming.
Summary: good product, i am satisfied with product quality. easy to use. inbuilt camera for still photography is not up to mark , looks like VGA quality. As i order it to deliver in india so endup paying rs.3071 as custom duty above its price so slightly expensive for me. Overall good product.
Summary: Before I purchased this item, I went to the Samsung website, downloaded the manual and spent a week perusing the features. While it's true that they do tout their own software, which is solely Windows compatible -- guess what? If you are a Mac user who has iLife, (I'm using a sturdy little dinosaur of a Powerbook G4, running Mac OSX 10.4.11 with iLife 05) the video files created by this camera are drag and drop, and you should be able to view and edit them with ease.
Summary: I have owned this Samsung camera for about 2 weeks now, The initial purpose for the purchase was the birth of my first baby girl. It is a very easy to use idiot proof camera. Starts up fast, starts shooting in a couple of seconds and the video quality is good. It is naturally not a HD video, but you get what is promised and paid for. I would buy again.
Summary: The software that came with the camera Media Show is horrible and freezes alot. But I did not buy it for the free software, The camera itself is excellent. I can easily upload the videos without the software. The zoom works great. The buttons are self explaining. I love the fact that I have the choice of saving it to a memory card or internal HD. Excellent camera, Excellent price.
