Product Details

Samsung F90BN 52X Optical Zoom White HD Camcorder, Model F90W

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'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 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.

                      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.

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.

                              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.

                                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 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.
