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.

from Pittsburgh, PA
Very high quality videos. Excellent sound quality.
Very pleased, Great Reliability, Battery life is a bit short
from Concord, CA
I have used this on several occasions to record meetings and events. The battery lasts about 2 hrs, 20 minutes without zooming / starting-stopping frequently - just turn it on, hit record, and walk away. Picture quality is outstanding. Audio is very good when there is not significant background noise. Overall, its a very solid machine and one that I would buy again.

Have purchased other digital camcorder before but WOW! Am very impressed by this Samsung f90w. What a great camcorder. Thank you for a great product.
This product has a problem.
from Winter Haven Florida
I purchased two of these. I could not register one of them because the system would not accept the serial number of the second camera. The problem is that about every 20 minutes the camera starts a new file. The time between the end of one file and the start of the next file is about 5 seconds. If using more than one camera to shoot a video, it is very difficult to synchronize the two or more video streams when editing for a final video. Other than that the cameras are good all around video. This problem occurs in both cameras.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
This product is such that I can take it any where it is compact with a wide range of service!!
from Pennsylvania, USA
I just love my mini CamCorder. it is light enough and small enough to carry everywhere without being in the way or taking up a lot of space. I like that it has the functionality of a movie screen.. to me any way. it is clear and sharp and my favorite feature...easy to use.
This camcorder is, as expected, an excellent purchase
from Las Vegas, NV, USA
Before I made the final decision to buy this camcorder, I searched long and hard through a variety of online and televised reviews; most of the reviewers rated it good to excellent, although some had issues that were, in my opinion, minor or at least, correctable. For example, a few complained that the sound was low or difficult to hear during camcorder playback; that's true during the camcorder playback, to some extent, but everything is ok with the sound during playback on my TV or my computer - I just turn the volume up a little. Bottom line: I'm completely in love with this beautiful, workable, affordable camcorder because everything works well, and the photo and video functions are easy to understand and a breeze to operate - as advertised.
from Palmetto Florida
This small handheld camcorder is lightweight, attractive and easy to use. I would have given 5 stars all the way except for the fact it only records in 720P at the high end. A nice touch would have been to add an external mike hook up as the built in mike is extremely sensitive. The optical zoom of 52X is awesome and would highly recommend the use of a tripod when using full zoom. This is a great cam if you use You Tube. For the price point this cam beats the competition hands down.

The Samsung F90BN is so handy to use
The F90BN is held with great control and ease, in the palm of my hand. The control buttons couldn't be better located for ease of access. I was amazed at the sharpness of still pictures and videos.
