Summary: The Pros: Compact, 10x optical zoom, image stabilization, can switch between 1gig internal and external memory, and the external lens. Cons: Image quality is about that of a compact digital camera, the stills are about that of a cell phone.
Summary: This is a camera for those that know exactly what they want. If you don't know, then don't get this one. I have owned it for 1yr now, I've used it for skydiving, snowboarding, skiing, and when I want to do stupid crash related stuff. That is what it is made for!
Summary: This cam works great for on the move down and dirty sport shots. I use it while I ski, bike, fly and drive down the German autobahn at crazy speeds. The still photo options is a little lacking and it has other features like files and MP3 player but I only got this for the movies I can make along...
Summary: I've had the Samsung X210L for about 10 months now... and give it a 5 star rating for special purpose use -- i.e. sports cam. In the sports cam application (in my case, mostly skiing) you usually have two distinct needs -- shooting friends and family from a distance and helmet cam.
Summary: This video cam was designed and targeted for the sports minded or active athlete that wants to capture their moments on video. If you're using it for this purpose, nothing beats it for the price. It's ridicilious to compare or expect this camera to perform like: 1.
Summary: my sister bought this camera for my christmas present last year. i do a lot of snowboarding in colorado. my sister made jokes because on the box was a picture of a snowboarder in action. it was kinda cute and funny. im not a camera guy so i dont understand all the fancy terms.
