Samsung SC-HMX20C

PC Magazine
22 October 2009
  • Conclusion: Samsung's small, sleek SC-HMX20C camcorder is dead simple to operate, but Canon and Sony reign supreme in video image quality.
  • Pros: Unique, compact design. Touch screen. Expandable storage. Super-simple file transfers. Supports HDMI CEC technology. Excellent editing and Blu-ray burning software.
  • Cons: Video looks underexposed. Noticeable purple fringing. Can feel a bit awkward in hand. No optical viewfinder. No HDMI-out on camera itself; must use bundled docking station.

Review: Samsung SC-HMX20C HD Camcorder

22 April 2009
  • Excerpt: Samsung’s HMX20C camcorder has been out for almost a year now but for many consumers that may actually be a good thing. Normally we focus on buying the newest gear available so it will be usable as long as possible, but for certain purchases–especially camcorders and cameras–this isn’t necessary.

  • Excerpt: The SC-HMX20C represents an HD camcorder that most will find easy use, feature packed and has all issues solved from the previous year's model. Through extensive testing, there wasn't much it couldn't handle and performance and image/video quality were excellent for such a small unit.

Samsung VP-HMX20

28 October 2008
  • Summary: The Samsung VP-HMX20 impressed us with the quality of its video even in low light, making this more than just a good-looking stylish model. We'd like more manual control -- and more subtle control over the zoom -- but it's so easy to use that we can look past that to see how good this camorder is
  • Pros: Crisp detail; strong low-light performance; slick styling.
  • Cons: No optical image stabilisation; overzealous zoom control.

Samsung SC-HMX20C Full HD Camcorder

28 May 2008
  • Summary: Different resolutions are available including 1920x1080i and 1920x1080p. My current TV does 1920x1080i but we recorded video at both the interlaced and progressive settings for the review.

  • Cons: Digital Camera Has Noise All But Bright Light Photos, Slow Motion Is Time Limited (10 Second Clip at 1/8), Storage Setting Is Globally Internal or External

Samsung VP-HMX20C review

18 May 2009
  • Excerpt: The VP-HMX20C is unique here thanks to its 1/1.8in sensor. This has almost three times the surface area of the Sony HDR-CX11E's 1/3in sensor, and over 11 times that of Panasonic's HDC-SD20. Bigger sensors capture more light and measure it more accurately, giving a significant boost to image quality.

Samsung VP-HMX20 review

13 March 2009
  • Summary: Samsung has seriously upped its game with the arrival of this 1920x1080 flash-memory camcorder. The company can no longer be criticised for being competitive on price but not bringing anything new to the table in terms of design or features.

Expert Review

19 March 2015
  • Conclusion: Das Low-Light Verhalten ist trotz großem Chip nur klassentypisch. Schärfe, Weitwinkel, Objektivverzerrung und Audioeigenschaften liegen fast durchgehend hinter allen Mitstreitern. Und auch bei der Touchscreen-Bedienung gibt es keine revolutionären Konzepte zu entdecken.
  • Pros: günstiger Ladenpreis
  • Cons: Wenig Schärfe, kein Weitwinkel, Objektivverzerrung

Samsung VP-HMX20C

2 August 2010
  • Conclusion: To pierwsza kamera Full HD tego producenta. Została wyposażona w obiektyw z dziesięciokrotnym zoomem oraz spory (1/1,8 cala) przetwornik CMOS o rozdzielczości 6,4 miliona pikseli. Filmy zapisywane są na wewnętrznej pamięci flash (8GB) oraz kartach SDHC.
  • Pros: Dobra ostrość, Dobra dynamika
  • Cons: Słaba stabilizacja obrazu, Walcowaty kształt uniemożliwia dobre "zakotwiczenie" kamery w dłoni
