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: I have had a handful of small cameras for recording on helmets, handle bars and even in a small RC plane. This sports camcorder is by far the best I have tried. It weighs the same as cameras that don't have a video display so it fits my needs very well. Not good in low light conditions.
Summary: This is a great recorder. It's hardly bigger than a cell phone and easy to use. I am a moderately knowledgeable tech user but by no means as wrapped up in it as the general pop and I didn't really need any instruction.
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.
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.
