Samsung F90BN 52X Optical Zoom Black HD Camcorder, Model F90B

If you are looking for the best HD camcorder, look no further than the Samsung F90BN 52X Optical Zoom Black HD Camcorder - HMX-F90BN/XAA. This new digital video camera offers a 52X optical zoom. With this level of optical zoom, you will easily be able to capture the best image quality from both close up and far away. On top of that, this new Samsung Camcorder uses 720p HD recording that is 2.5x better than standard definition camcorders.

Samsung has also added multiple features that increase the usability of this digital video camera. For example, my Clip by Samsung lets you bookmark your favorite scenes; in order to easily playback exactly what you want, without having to fast-forward or rewind. Another useful feature this HD camcorder offers is Record Pause, which gives you the ability to pause your recording when there is a long pause or break. Capture stunning videos no matter how far away you are with the Samsung F90BN HD Camcorder.

Features:

  • Capture Incredible Details with 52x Zoom
    We know that a powerful optical zoom lens is a critical feature in any camcorder which is why the Samsung F90 comes with a 52x optical zoom lens. It brings you as close to the action as you need to be and ensures that every image is as clear and crisp as you remember them. Plus, we've added additional pixels from the image sensor to the existing optical zoom
  • 720p HD Movie Recording
    Experience the same clarity you do while watching high definition movies — with your own videos. 1280 x 720 30p HD recording offers 2.5x better resolution than conventional standard definition camcorders. Since video is captured at 30 frames per second, you'll enjoy a cinematic-like presentation — especially when played back on your large screen HDTV or desktop HD monitor
  • One Touch Sharing Button
    Capture your most memorable moments and share with friends and family. Simply connect the camcorder to a PC, select your files, and press the One-Touch Sharing Button to quickly upload your videos to YouTube
  • Bookmark Your Favorite Scenes
    Play back your favorite moments of a night out with friends or your hike through the woods — without having to waste time fast-forwarding or rewinding. The My Clip feature allows you to tag any scene in your video, so you can instantly relive the most hilarious bits or amazing sights over and over again — with no additional editing
  • Customize Your Movie Clips
    Add a professional touch to your movies with My Music. Select one of four preloaded classical pieces to score your videos. Or import songs from your PC's music library by using Samsung's Intelli-Studio. And if there's talking in the scene, it won't get drowned out by the score. Smart BGM ? automatically lowers the music, so you always hear whoever is speaking
  • More Natural Colors in Every Image
    Whether lush greens in a garden, cool blues of an ocean, or a ruby-toned party dress, accurately capture the many colors of life. The F90 features a CMOS Sensor, which filters light into separate red, green and blue elements for color reproduction that is richer, deeper, and more natural looking than any taken with a CCD Sensor. You'll also enjoy clearer images, with no vertical smears
  • Take a Break in the Action
    When shooting a long video, like a baseball game or a child's play, you'll probably want to take a break for any long pauses or intermission. With the Record Pause feature on the Samsung CAMCORDER, you can pause the recording and then pick up right where you left off without creating a new file. This way you only have one file to work with and don't have to merge files for editing, sharing or transferring
  • Time Lapse
    The Time-Lapse recording feature is fun and easy to use. By taking still frames at preset intervals and then putting them in sequential order, the Samsung CAMCORDER is able to create a video file that condenses hours of recording such as sunset or sunrise into minutes of viewing
  • 2.7"(67.5mm) LCD
    With the wide 2.7"(67.5mm) LCD display, you can see everything in the shot — even when you're next to the camcorder. That's because the LCD display features a wide viewing angle that lets you see images on the screen clearly while you shoot, even when you're looking from the side, above, or below
  • USB Charging
    Simply connect the Samsung F90 to a PC's USB port, turn on the PC, and your camcorder will start recharging. This intelligent feature gives you the freedom to shoot, share, and recharge from almost anywhere
  • F1.8
    The Samsung F90 comes with an F1.8 lens that ensures high-quality video, even in low light conditions. Whether you're shooting an intimate, candle-lit dinner in a restaurant or a setting sun at dusk, the bright, wide aperture lens captures sharp, crystal-clear images every time
  • HDMI
    Get superior picture and sound from your HD source. The High-Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) is a digital connection that can transmit HD video and audio over a single cable

I had never used a Camcorder before, but to keep the memories of my family alive I wanted one. After looking at several stores and seeing other camcorders features I noticed they had a refurbished one on the Samsung website. The features on the HMX-F90 were comparable and just as nice as other brands that cost a lot more. The Quick Start Guide was very well written and helpful in learning how to record and playback. It also gave other instructions on how to use its features. The 52X optical zoom is great in getting all the action in focus from a distance. The light weight and LCD screen display made recording the action a lot easier. After recording it was nice to be able to see and hear what I had recorded. Having only received the HMX-F90 only a short time, I am still learning how to use all the other features to better enhance the memories I record. In the coming years memories of Christmas, Family reunions, Fourth of July, little league football and baseball games and other events will be caught live for future generations to see and remember. No complaints from me about the inexpensive price paid for this camcorder since it has everything you need on it. I trust the quality of products that Samsung develops. The name has become an icon in electronic technology and reliability. My Samsung television and Galaxy Tablet have always been easy to use and better then all the other brands, in my opinion.

Overall a very nice camera - value for the money. The only problem, which I wish someone would have mentioned - the recording length. This camera can only record for 20 min at a time. It then "creates a new file." Nowhere did I find Samsung tell me this until after I had bought the camera and was able to download the user's manual. The problem comes in the 3-5 seconds of lost time between the end of one file and the beginning of the next one. For recording a sporting event, it would be okay, but for my kids' plays and concerts, it is not - there is no work around other than to keep an eye on the timer. That is really the only problem that I have with the camera.

        So Light, zoom is great, and the time lapse feature is incredible. Used it for filming our Church work camp crew working on a house, and it is a great video to watch. Only downsides are the manual switch to close the lens (I forget to do it as all other cameras I have had were auto closed) and the button to take the picture I keep pushing instead of the power button. Besides that, Awesome Video Camera

                I shoot with this yesterday I got a very bad quality video, looks like a VGA camera phone video, I took at the same time video with my phone and I'm so glad I did cause the quality with the camcorder was terribly bad, spend some extra money instead get this product, we are a Samsung family, all our phones are galaxies, my monitor, Tv's, headphones, and that's why we went for this camera but I think Samsung don't care about this area so much!!

                      Hi, I needed something easy-handy-light weight for capturing my new baby memorable moments. I was not expecting this compact cam being soo great. Its very easy and picture quality is excellent for both video and still. Being light weight and handy it makes very easy for my wife to operate quickly to capture some memorable moments. Its zoom and image stabilizer is not tested fully but for what I have done (capturing her movement from atleast 15-20mtrs) is great. I would surely recommend this product as its a very effective product with great value for money. (For now I only have personal moments so not sharing any pics/video but will surely upload if there is an option in future.) - But believe me its great quality.
