Summary: I have now owned the Samsung U10 for around 14 months, but within the next month I will be getting rid. Firstly to be fair, I will list the good points; * It is incredibly light and compact, easily fitting into your pocket. * It starts up reasonably quick if you need to turn it on in a hurry. * The battery life is quite impressive Sadly, thats where the good points end. First and foremost the U10 is horrendous in low-light conditions.
Summary: Bought this to document travels in Southern Africa thinking it would be better than my 6 year old P&S digital camera. How wrong can you be. Absolutely rubbish product - terrible picture quality and flaring as well as the unit constantly resetting it's date settings therefore jumbling up in my photo management software. All in all a nightmare, in all this hype about these mini camcorder things no one really points out that they are total c**p.
Summary: The camera advertises about the HD video, but the only problem is you can clearly see all of the pixels and when you zoom in on the HD mode it loses the good quality. It plays back fine when on the camera, but stops and starts a lot whilst playing it on my laptop. The still image, you have to keep it very still or the image will turn into just a blur. Overall I think it's a good camera, especially for the price I got it for, £54.99.
Summary: Well, i bought this as it was recommender to me, and at first, i noticed that filming at 720p downwards, there was a much smaller amount of area being filmed, and the quality at 480 was very grainy. The camera has difficulty dealing with light and darkness, so the light has to be just right before filming.
Summary: This is a great little gadget at this price. Takes a bit of practice to develop a smooth and steady camera style but is so compact its ideal to pack on all sorts of trips and occasions. Full HD too!
camera just doesn't work - no customer satisfaction

Summary: I was actually looking to buy the Flip because it was well reviewed by pretty much everyone. I only bought this as the style was neat. I instantly didn't like it and neither did anyone else in the house. The menus are impossible to navigate. Although I can access the record and stop function, the other menu buttons could be a tiny bit out of alignment. Which means you can't even play what you just recorded.
