Amazed by the high-quality of this little small digicam. Utilised own brand name sdhc cards and they labored fantastic. Read rather a couple reviews ahead of buying. Can only recommend that the adverse reviewers hadn’t followed all the recommendations or utilised the correct ranking of memory card. I usually visit the manufacturer’s internet site to down load and study the instruction manual for the solution in advance of acquiring. Will have to have skipped the point that the editing program provided requires a much additional advanced personal computer than mine. In any case , the video clip clips can be study straight from the sdhc card and performed on quicktime participant , or converted making use of a single of several totally free programmes and then edited in home windows movie maker. Only gripe is that amazon significantly lessened the cost of this product quite soon soon after i bought it. This takes place considerably much too usually and they no extended refund the distinction.

Camera, not terrible, disgrace about the memory card dilemma. A neat very little camcorder + superior worth. That is if you can get it to read the memory card. I wasted loads of time on this, such as phoning samsung purchaser companies, they asked me to obtain some software program for it, took 30mins + nonetheless did not perform, so had to have it repaired by their samsung repair centre. 2 months afterwards, i now have a operating camcorder. Okay if you never brain that hassle. Appalling + shoddy perform by samsung even their individual web-site improve programme failed to operate. Get it only if you do not thoughts losing a great deal of time receiving the memory card sorted out 1st.

I bought this camcorder as a replacement for the mini-dv samsung which is no longer produced and which had suddenly stopped working. Although i’ve not yet had a great deal of practice with it i’m enjoying the additional features over my previous one. I particularly like being able to grab still jpeg images from the video shot – saves carrying around a still and camcorder. Also very small and light making it easy to carry around – fits into any pocket. The use of an sd card, although more expensive than mini dv tapes, means that finding a particular scene is much quicker and you can buy large capacity 16 or 32gb cards to hold 8 or 16 hours of video. However these cards are still very expensive. The only down side so far i’ve found is as a result of it being so tiny, this makes it harder to film smoothly. Obviously this will get better with practice as you get used to it. I have also found that the digital zoom, whilst not quite as good as optical, on this camera the quality is quite acceptable – if you can keep it still and avoid hand shake.

Excellent digicam if you get spherical the memory card challenge. To start with of all i would have given this 4 or five stars if it was not for the memory card challenge which can be rather very easily solved. It can be just one of the handful of modest cameras that has any optical zoom (10x) and excellent electronic zoom (1200x). It would seem to do everything it should really and is extremely quick to use. Now the memory card difficulty. I purchased this with two 8gb sandisk sdhc playing cards. Neither worked and gave a ‘card error’ message. Amazon ended up very good and replaced both of those the cards and camera but very same difficulty. I just about gave up and bought a refund but as a final resort i rang samsung. The first guidance man or woman could not support and proposed i try a unique make of card but the next individual new of this problem and instructed me to download new firmware from the samsung web page.

This item is tiny and compact which is superior however i was stunned to discover there was no memory card in it. The image excellent is alright but not as good as my former (sony) vid recorder.

Samsung SMX-C10GP/XEU SD Compact Flash Camcorder, 10x Optical Zoom, 2.7 inch Wide LCD, H.264 Recording – Grey : Camera great – card not compatible. Camera great value for money but card supplied with amazon bundle won’t work – comes up as card error. Old sd card works fine though.

I have had it now for four years. The quality of the video is not great, but it’s ok. It had a problem with my (also amazon purchased) sd card. The card eventually broke and the new one seems to be working. The video recorder is cheap and good enough for family occasions and the like.

Got to say some people thought this camcorder would be bad but when i got it i was really impressed with the packaging and the price really cheap and amazing video quality when i went to watch some trialing good frame rate and also good focus and zoom would highly recomend for a handy cam better than a flip.

Camera, not bad, shame about the memory card problem. A neat little camcorder + good value. That is if you can get it to read the memory card. I wasted loads of time on this, including phoning samsung customer services, they asked me to download some software for it, took 30mins + still didn’t work, so had to have it repaired by their samsung repair centre. 2 weeks later, i now have a functioning camcorder. Ok if you don’t mind that hassle. Appalling + shoddy work by samsung; even their own website upgrade programme didn’t work. Get it only if you don’t mind wasting a lot of time getting the memory card sorted out first.

Camcorder firmware upgrade needed before working. I have yet to properly explore this camcorder since i’ve had problems getting it working and wished to share the fix with others. When you first get the item, it will not recognise an sdhc card, but returns a card error warning, making the camcorder useless. After purchasing a second card to check, then requesting a replacement item, i found the replacement also returning this error. Eventually i discovered that you can upload new firmware onto the camcorder to make it compatible with sdhc. However you need to download this onto your pc first from the samsung website, and transfer it using an old style sd card which is the only card format the camcorder will recognise out of the box. This is obviously far from ideal, but at least there is a fix for all frustrated customers.

Cheap and cheerful – does what it says on the tin. At least it was cheap through the 70% special deal i got. Not sure i’d go for this at current price and definitely not at full price. For the purpose i wanted it for – taking 5 min videos where all that mattered was keeping the subject in the frame, it’s perfect. Very compact, so easy to keep around. Easy to use – didn’t really need any kind of manual. Have only transferred files via putting the sd card into computer, which is painless. What wasn’t painless was that the camera was supplied without the most recent firmware upgrade. Which meant that it wouldn’t recognise the 8gb sdhc card that i bought at the same time – as recommmended.

Good camera if you get round the memory card problem. First of all i would have given this 4 or 5 stars if it wasn’t for the memory card problem which can be fairly easily solved. It’s one of the few small cameras that has any optical zoom (10x) and good digital zoom (1200x). It seems to do everything it should and is very easy to use. Now the memory card problem. I ordered this with two 8gb sandisk sdhc cards. Neither worked and gave a “card error” message. Amazon were very good and replaced both the cards and camera but same problem. I almost gave up and got a refund but as a last resort i rang samsung. The first support person couldn’t help and suggested i try a different make of card but the second person new of this problem and told me to download new firmware from the samsung website.

Very neat and compact design, easy to carry and with an amazing number of features for such a small and cheap item. Will have to get used to holding on the slant but it looks like a good idea. Excellent zoom and reasonably sharp picture. The box it came in was appalling, badly secured. Both ends had popped out of their slots (they were not taped) showing exactly what was inside and it could very easily have slipped out. Thanks to the honesty of the postal staff it arrived safely but it could so easily have been an empty box – attention needed.

Surprised by the quality of this tiny little camera. Used own brand sdhc cards and they worked fine. Read quite a few reviews before purchasing. Can only suggest that the negative reviewers hadn’t followed all the instructions or used the correct rating of memory card. I usually visit the manufacturer’s website to download and read the instruction manual for the product before purchasing. Must have missed the fact that the editing software provided requires a much more sophisticated pc than mine. Anyway , the video clips can be read straight from the sdhc card and played on quicktime player , or converted using one of many free programmes and then edited in windows movie maker. Only gripe is that amazon substantially reduced the price of this item very soon after i bought it. This happens far too often and they no longer refund the difference.

An amazing begginers camcorder. Overall, i think this is an amazing little camera, its great for a first camcorder, and is generally easy to use with some great quality sd clips, sure its not hd, but if you want a hd camera, go and get one instead of complaining about it :).
