Pros Great zoom, compact & comfortable, video is great for the price, comes with easy to install editing software for uploading to youtube.
Cons Not great in really low light situations.
Summary This Samsung camcorder is great for amateur video takers. It's compact size makes it light weight and not bulky. This is a good starter digital camcorder for parents and young adults. Remember that you get what you pay for. Do not get this camcorder thinking it is going to have superior professional features and video quality.
Pros zoom buitl in 16gb lite weight put in you pocket
Cons grainy needs lots of light
Summary not the best kina grainy good for youtube and kids videos if you want something lite weight put in your pocket and go its cool no tapes ez to hook to pc upload to youtube great software long battery life 3 hours built in 10gb hard drive only on qvc
Pros Nice color. Convenient size
Cons Way too much money for what you get. The C-Net review is right on about difficulty with the buttons, zooming, etc.
Summary Like they said, spend a few bucks more for the Canon or spend less for the mini. Either way you'll get a better product.
Pros optical zoom length, style, audio,
Cons caannot take pictures! not hd
Summary overall this was a decent camcorder but it broke all of a sudden
i had used it in extreme temperatures but i have never dropped it.
i got it for the easy upload to youtube
but it turns out all i used it for was family vids.
i have had it for almost 2 years but it should have lasted longer.
one thing i must point out, samsung online repair is the most atrocious service ever!!!!!!
they said my address was invalid even though i checked it 20 times
i love my samsung tv's but i will never buy another samsung camcorder.
Pros easy to use menu, hand held, uses flash memory, good battery life
Cons included software not good for advanced editing
Summary I was looking for a camcorder that uses flash memory (SD & SDHC to be specific), good battery life, and good in various levels of light. This camera overall meets those needs for me. The menu on the camera is easy to use, and easy to make changes to settings. It has good battery life, which surprised me, when a digital camera I own under the same brand didn't.
My only dislike is the software that comes with the camera. It doesn't have the editing features I'm looking for. It's only good for making it easier to convert videos to YouTube's .flv format. I'm looking for software that will edit .mpeg4 format. Haven't found it yet.
Regardless, I'm keeping this camera as it's overall a good camera.
