"Good camera while it lasted..."2.0 starson by 99vfrpilot
Pros: Excellent outdoor video quality.
Cons: Mediocre in low light, has begun to malfunction after just over a year of mild use. A bit pricey but was sort of worth it until recently.
Summary: This camera has begun to do a very annoying thing. Occasionally while recording it abruptly halts and gives the error message, "card speed too slow, use a card with higher speed". I have been using the same card since new - Verbatim class 6 cards but only recently the camera doesn't like these. The manual states this card is fast enough. I'll be contacting Samsung for service but that means no camera for an indeterminable period.Well after trying several new cards with the same result I've contacted Samsung for a repair. Their customer support in Canada is terrible, I had to give the same information over and over again. They have only two outsourced repair facilities each about 2500 mi away. Lame. I will look elsewhere for my future electronics needs.

Updated on Apr 14, 2012It's dead. It was finally determined to be a mainboard failure. Thanks to VISA I got a refund & am shopping around for a new camcorder that hopefully will last for longer than six months before it breaks down.
