4 out of 5 eggsGreat HD Camcorder

Pros: I bought mine elsewhere, but felt like leaving a review here cause I like Newegg. I bought the model that does not have an internal hard drive. Mine stores everything on an 8gb SDHC card. The 8gb is more then enough room for me so this 16gb model will suit almost anyone.

Its easy to use, the touch screen works great when using a hard point (like your fingernail). The menus are easy to navigate and I love how I can take pics without having to switch to a different mode, just hit the pic button and it takes a pic (great quality too).

I usually film in 720 because its easier to edit (smaller file size) but 1080i is just awesome. Autofocus generally works good. The zoom is nice because it has you zoom as fast or as slow as you want, nice and smooth.

Mic works good as far as I'm concerned, no problems picking up voices for me, but I would like the option to plug in a separate mic if I wanted too.

Cons: The video Files types (MP4) will only play for me using Cyberlink PowerDVD. All my other video players skip when trying to play the videos. Just a PIA cause Cyberlink takes a min to open up.

Auto focus doesn't work too well at night and the manual focus isn't the best.

Other Thoughts: I would have liked if it had a mode to shoot at night like an infrared mode. You can film at night but you will need to light the area/subject.

The camera comes with built in software that loads up when you connect the cam to your comp, kind of annoying if you don't use it to save your files.

The lens cover is nice and protects the lens as well as keeps the dirt out when you're not using the camera or traveling.

Overall I think this is a great HD camcorder and I'm glad I bought it, I've had good luck with Samsung products, own quite a few. My Samsung L100 digital camera fell about 60ft onto a fence and didn't even break (although I did lose the label on the dial, lol)

2 out of 5 eggsnot very good

Pros: small size, convenient menus, somewhat acceptable video

Cons: numerous. Let me say this. The video quality was not good and not at all what I was expecting. It tries to cover up the very heavy handed compression algorithm by trying to slightly over define color/contrast edges. Other things such as hair, grass, etc can turn into video mud.

If the colors and or contrast are too close (this happened a lot in my testing) it literally gives up on any notion of clarity and turns that area into a blurred approximation blob.

I thought I was doing something wrong or the camera was just a bad apple until I had finished testing every white balance and quality setting there was on the camera under different lighting conditions. I even bought another high speed data card for it thinking maybe the on-board ram was jacked.

I was still willing to try and live with this camera "UNTIL" I tried takings stills with it. My jaw dropped. Not because the pictures were stunning btw but because they had worse compression artifacts than the video. Horrible waste

Other Thoughts: I am a computer enthusiast since the mid 80's (currenly work as a network admin) and worked in TV and video production as a cinematographer/editor years ago. So, the perspective on this camera is more objective than subjective. It has some decent points but I'd be reluctant to pay half what I did for the quality of the video it produced. If I had known beforehand I certainly wouldn't have bought this camera.
