I'm a dinosaur from broadcast (ESPN Dallas 1980's.) I worked with 3-tube, and later 4-chip pro cams, and I like all the manual control I can get, so I'm never Truly Happy with consumer stuff, However, this is the coolest little camcorder I've found for the price! For me, the biggest bang for the buck is the 52x optical zoom. It reaches out there and gets you the shot! unlike digital zoom, which gets grainy and pixel distorted, optical zoom gets the close-up in focus! (FYI, the big boy cams of my era could only muster 15x zoom) The downside of this much magnification: 1. Zoom loves lots of light 2. The slightest jitter looks like an earthquake (the on board image stabilizer can't compensate for this) You'll need a good tripod! 3. auto focus can freak out at high zoom, so manual focus is the way to go! Of course I love all the manual overrides this baby offers. I would have preferred a user's manual in the box, but the pdf is cool too. I'm still learning all the features of this camera has to offer! So far, i'm very impressed! Ron J.

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.

I've enjoyed using the camcorder so far. I have a lot more to learn about using it effectively.
I am totally disgusted with this product.
I am totally disgusted with this product. For starters, the Quick Start Guide is virtually useless. It is so small I cannot read it. In addition, the guides raise more questions than they answer. And, as far as I can tell (with the utterly pathetic guide supplied), I need to have a memory card (and an adapter??) before I can even use this product. It is not useable out-of-the-box. Would I recommend this product to anyone else? Thatâ€™s a definite NO.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I love this. The day I got this I found out about my son's surprise school program. WIth no time to figure it out I started using it right away. It's easy to figure out, and simple for my son to use too. Nice size and perfect for my handbag.

I just received the camcorder. and was able to use it right out of the box. I filmed the kids opening presents and was able to upload to my computer without any problems.
Great camcorder for a great price!

My husband bought this camcorder for me for Christmas (I got it 2 days early), and I LOVE IT! Its so easy to use and very user friendly. Lightweight, portable, clear pictures. I like that it changes the mode to night time when its dark and automatically adjusts to the lighting. Now I can finally start making home movies of our 1 year old and the rest of our family for them to all look back on later in life!
Great little camera!

I'ii compare this camera to any of the more expensive ones for quality and features. It goes beyond my expectations! Very pleased with it and would recommend it to anyone!
Very User Friendly
from Camp Hill, PA, USA
I got this camcorder this morning, and am already recording, and sending clips much easier than with my other camcorder, which by the way, cost almost 4 times as much as this one. The videos are crystal clear as are the photos. The settings are really easy to adjust. I love this camcorder already. I will probably use my much more expensive camcorder much less now. Thanks for making a great product. The only drawback that I can see is the sound could be just a tad louder. I am sold on Samsung!
