Great Specialty Product Bad Amazon Deal

Clyde A. Warden Jr., Amazon
1 April 2007
  • Summary: I use this camera to take video for training and teaching and it works great for that. My issue is with Amazon's special deal for the SanDisk 2 GB SD Memory Card. This brand of card does NOT work in the Samsung camera.

Good for snowboarding

Giyoul Kim, Amazon
12 February 2007
  • Summary: I bought this one for my snowboarding. I think this is the one for snowboarding. Unlike skiing, shooting on snowboard is not easy for many reason. And even for ski, it is not recommended to shoot while riding. The included external camera makes it easy to shoot and is water resistant.

Very bad video quality and not easily compatible with any Apple computer

N. Cornell, Amazon
12 February 2007
  • Summary: I purchased this camcorder a few days ago while I was in New York attending the auto show. I shot several videos and still photos of an installation I helped create and downloaded them to my Apple PowerBook G4 today to view. The still photos are practically worthless.

  • Summary: The downloadable spec sheet for this camera from Samsung's US web site states clearly that it is suposedly Mac OSX compatible under the section titled 'Conectivity', on last page of pdf - so much for the childish comments in prior reviews.

Not for the family user

C. Russo, Amazon
12 February 2007
  • Summary: This unit, while extremely compact, was not meant for the family user. Video in lower light conditions is unacceptable, and photos taken with the built-in flash unit usually are very dark if more than 6 feet away. This unit is for the outdoor sports enthusiast, but not for the family or indoor user.

Mac Owners Learn to Read

Pele Maradona, Amazon
12 February 2007
  • Summary: If you were to look where it says OS for operating system, it says pretty clearly Windows 2000/XP. Not compatible with MAC. geee you think that would explain why the techs don't care that you bought this camera without the ability to read? it's your fault not there's.

GOOD FOR WHAT IT IS

David P. Faulk, Amazon
12 February 2007
  • Summary: I have been thinking of buying a new video camera, but I really wanted the ability to have a helmet cam for catching the action from my motorcycle and ATV. This unit fit the bill perfectly, since a separate helmet cam for my DV camera is approximately $300.
