Summary: I bought this camcorder to upgrade from a Samsung SMX K40BN which by the way is excellent also.But I Love the SC HMX 20C it is actually a lot better than what I expected Takes Beautiful Video and Beautiful Stills also.This camcorder is very easy to set-up and operate.Also the quality of the camcorder is excellent very solid.Also has built in pop up flash and takes 8mp photos.I will more than likely buy another one for my wife so I don't have to share.LOL
Summary: Great camera. Discontiued 1080p camera. With 16GB class 6 15MB/s card, holds over 2 hours of video. Intenal memory holds less, but still over an hour. The batteries seem to last 70 to 90 minutes though so have it plugged in or buy extra batteries if you are recording long. Found some cheap ones on Amazon for $12 each that work well. Great resolution and sound, though get something to help if you are in a windy sintuation. Touch menus are great as well.
Summary: I think there should be a total recall of this camera, I purchased it new in a box and used the velcro handle to get the feel of the thing and it came loose from the housing and fell around six feet to the floor. I can't help but laugh,it could have fell off as I was taking that once it a lifetime photo from my cruise ship balcony. No warranty camera is junk.
Summary: Likes: Great pictures Great looks Smart swivel grip Nice flash Can use with power cord if battery runs out Pretty good HD video Nice anti-shake and other features (eazy-Q) Not so good: HD shots are best in brighter light conditions Colors seem "flat" in dimmer light conditions Battery lasts about an hour (actually not too bad for most of my situations) All things considered (with the price of it's nearest competitors), if you can pick one up for 4 to 500.00, I think...
