samsung f40

  • Summary: I saw this camera here and i decided to buy it based on the reviews given. I made a bit of a mistake. I have had this camcorder for about a year now and I can say it doesnt live up to my expectations. On the package you get the f40 in, it says the battery life lasts up to 4 hours. this is not at all accurate. the first week i got this and fully charged it, I realized that it wasnt doing the 4 hours.

About my experience with the camera

Danielle Martin "Disney D*Boo", Amazon
14 February 2011
  • Summary: This product is a slight disappointment. It has no internal memory and no lighting. You have to buy a SD memory card in order to save anything. I am also very let down by the fact that the software that you use to download videos does not have an option to make DVDs from the movies. The main reason I wanted a video camera was so that I could make actual hard copies of the movies I recorded, but this camera does not allow you to do so.

Don't buy if you want memories

Walmart
13 June 2010
  • Summary: At first this product seemed great, but I did end up exchanging it for something else. The size of the camcorder is great, it fits nicely in your hand. The lens cover is manual so the lens is easily protected from dust and scratches. Even with the battery the unit is very lightweight and easy to use. The zoom is fantastic, we were able to zoom to the top of the light pole from our living room. We used it to record our baby's first bath and boy were we disappointed!

Well suited for the budget buyer or first timer. Suited for occasional use.

  • Summary: Not a bad camera for the price, though a little flimsy. light weight and easy to use, so good for the light traveler. Simplicity seems to be a major aspect of it, and more suited for general/ occasional use. Compares reasonably to others in the same price range. Low pixels means photos are not that good, even close up, and optical zoom becomes a little distorted at about 30x. Seems reliable and battery lasts a while, though worth buying a second battery.

Gutes Produkt mit vermeidbaren Fehlern

Km "Bigmag", Amazon

  • Summary: Habe diesen Camcorder jetzt schon ein Jahr. Mit den Videoaufnahmen bin ich sehr zufrieden, für meine Aufnahmen bei Familie und Hobby reicht der allemal. Ganauso verhält es sich mit der Tonqualität. Die Qualität der Fotos gefällt mir nicht, zu unscharf. Aber dafür habe ich ja eine gute Digicam. Das 2. Manko erkennt mann bei der Wiedergabe von Videos im Format 16:9, diese werden immer im Format 4:3 wiedergegeben.

Buena camara, pero limitada

ELCABLEPELADO, MercadoLibre

  • Conclusion: Buena camara para filmaciones domesticas o de actos de escuela y cumpleaños. Mala para registrar filmaciones largas dado que corta los videos cada 1.8 gigas (leer manual)
  • Pros: Larga duracion de bateria, Zoom, Facil manejo, Opciones de acceso rapido y modos de escena, Software portable en la camara autoejecutable cuando se conecta al USB
  • Cons: Horribles fotos, Corte de archivo cada 1.8 giga (cada 47 minutos en superfino), Colores no muy buenos en baja luz, Pobre desempeño en interiores y con baja luz

  • Summary: Kurzbericht zum Camcorder SAMSUNG SFX40-BP/EC: Ich habe dieses Gerät vor ca. 1 Jahr bei Saturn für 149 Euro erworben. -+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+- KAUFGRUND: -+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+- Bewegte Bilder, nach Möglichkeit in 16:9 u. 4:3 (!) , betrachte ich als ganz anderes Medium als Fotos. Bewegte Bilder sollen für mich zusätzliche, andere, Erinnerungen an Urlaube etc. festhalten. Meine allerersten Versuche mit bewegten Bildern war ein superbillig-Modell von Aiptek.
  • Pros: Günstig, PAL - Standart, 16 : 9 u .  4 : 3 Bild, Großer Zoombereich, Klein und Leicht
  • Cons: Für große Hände eher ungeeignet .  .  .  .  .

Samsung SMX-F40, buenas prestaciones a buen precio

gateto, Ciao
21 March 2011
  • Excerpt: La compré sin grandes aspiraciones buscando una cámara doméstica que no fuera HD y me han sorprendido sus prestaciones, posibilidad de configuración, navegación de menús además de una calidad de imagen suficientemente buena. El zoom es muy bueno y llega a x65 siendo óptico hasta x52, sinceramente sorprende.
  • Pros: Amplia gama de configuraciones, menus agradables
  • Cons: Almacenamiento de grabaciones en SD lento al parar de grabar
