    Wants to purchase a camcorder and have never owned one before.

    • A. I bought a PNY 32GB class 6 SDHC card for $40 for this camera. Supposedly, 15Mbps is the fastest you'd expect to write to the card with this camera. That gives you about 4 hours of video. Not bad for $40, and I bet I get more than 4 hours out of the card.

    • A. You need a card. I run an SDHC in 16gb capacity and have room for almost 2 hours of video.

    • A. A memory card will be required, and depending on how much video you want to store (and how much you want to spend for the individual cards), that will be a better determination on what you'll need. A Best Buy sales associate or Geek Squad member would be able to assist you further with the amount of memory you'll need, and which options are best for you. Thanks for your interest in Samsung products. --HDTech

    This was an impulse buy. I was in Walmart to purchase more mini VHCs for the Canon Elura 70 I puchased for a trip to Walt Disney World in 2004. To my horror I later learned that the Canon only records photos onto the SDHC card and all videos record only onto cassettes. This was not a problem at the time but now it's a hassle to buy the cassettes and no non-commercial way to transfer each to a medium others can use. When I saw this camera in the store for $159 and found that it records right onto a media card, I was sold. I need the camera primarily to conduct interviews so I mostly use it mounted on a tripod. It takes patience to learn how to operate this camcorder and I agree with those that say the sound is on the weak side and the zoom is a bit fickle but still does the job. I'm still getting oriented but so far, I love the compactness and many useful features. I love being able to bring home the media card, insert it into my computer and make DVDs instantly! Great technology!

    I wasn't expecting broadcast quality video from a camcorder at this price. Meets my expectations and the video is quite good in good light. I don't shoot in poor light, so I don't know about the video there. The only thing I didn't like on the controls is that the backlight button is really easy to push by mistake due to it's location. Other than that, I am quite pleased with this camcorder.

    After many tape camcoders/combinations since 1983, this is my newest acquizition; Used to lug the bigger units around AND all of the big tapes too (missionary services to E Europe and Mexico); This promises to be the best yet--light, small HD, flash drive(4 gig now--6 later?) etc. Battery life for base battery seems good over 1hr plus. I use my units to capture church sermons and edit using Pinnacle/Avid 14 software, then launch to website! So far, so good! Ray ...con: Tiny fonts for S/N and other graphics....

    Inexpensive HD camera that gets most jobs done

    Customer review by SonicD3athMonkey

    The short version of this: it's cheap, but does well. It's really just a nicer version of the HD video capability of your point and shoot camera or smart phone in a camcorder form factor. For more detail, read on: I bought this camera a week ago in a pinch as I was asked to record the key moments of a wedding for my niece. I'm no videographer, but I did want something that shot in HD (although 1080p wasn't a requirement for me). I just wanted something that would shoot in HD and that would allow me to quickly allow me to get to the video files AND not set me back a car payment. This camera pretty much got the job done, even in very low light. Overall I'm pleased with the camera, here's a list of things that I liked: USB charging, shoots stills, face detection, stabilization, nice zoom, very light, clear LCD, simple USB-to-miniUSB cable and charger is easy/cheap to replace. There are a few things you need to know, however. It has an extremely weak battery. I got about 45 minutes of battery life shooting with face detection and stabilization enabled. You can get bigger/better batteries as it shares the same battery type as the more expensive Samsung camcorders (IA-BP210E/EPP or IA-BP420E/EPP). Also, the autofocus struggles a bit in lower light. Face detection struggles with profiles, but excels with finding faces (portraits) in crowds. The LCD gets totally washed out in bright, direct sunlight; you'll have to trust your aim when the sun is over your shoulder. Basically, this is a no frills type of camera. Really, it's about as good a camera as anything you already have in your point and shoot pocket camera. The benefit is the form factor of a camcorder and some extra features that you'd expect in a camcorder. It's 720p HD, so you'll get some very crisp video, especially in bright light situations. Here's an added side benefit of only being 720p: you can use a class 6 SDHC card and never worry about choppy video because of slow memory. 1080p cameras really need a class 10 card to shoot without any risk of choppy video, but at 720p speeds a class 6 card will do just fine (and are cheaper). Also, your video files won't be as big as a 1080p camera. Some video purists out there will probably argue the virtues of going 1080p, but if you're even considering this camera than you're probably not a videographer (or wannabe) and 720p is just fine. Don't confuse this with a pro quality camera or anything you might see in the $400+ range. But it really is the perfect balance of quality and value that you would want from a budget prices HD Flash memory camcorder.

    After returning a $159 camcorder from online, I got my money and bought this one in the store. I really fell in love wtih this camcorder!! Very easy to work with and beginner friendly to any camcorder! Everything focus very good and I get very very good zoom in and close shot of object in my aquariums. Great HD recorder and photo is alright! I advise you use a tripod to get a better stabile recording. I also love the built in video editor! Works very good and have alot of features!

    I found this to be a very nice camera for the price. I am a beginner and so I am still getting use to it. I do find the beginner feature great since I am still learning all of the camera features. I was going to use it for my husband's graduation pictures, but battery needed charging. Overall, I love this camera.

    Returned the product. It was OK but the image stabilization STUNK! It didn't matter how I held the camcorder (1 or 2 handed, elbows propped on hard surface, etc) when I played back the recording, it shook horribly. I know it's impossible to hold something completely still but if I was prone to motion sickness, watching the recorded video for 5 minutes would have made me sick. Personally, it doesn't matter what the other bells and wistles are if the video shakes so much you can't watch it. I absolutely love Samsung TVs but my 10 year old Sony Hi-8 camcorder provides superior video. Unfortunately, TV and Computer technology have advanced so much it makes my Sony impossible to view on TV or download video. Otherwise, I wouldn't be in the market for a new camcorder.
