Samsung HMX-H100 review: Samsung HMX-H100

 

Samsung HMX-H100

Attractive design; comfortable rotating grip; manual shutter speed and aperture controls.

SSD adds unnecessary price premium; so-so video quality; slow, inaccurate autofocus.

An interesting design doesn't offset the so-so video quality and performance, especially for the higher priced HMX-H106, H105, and H104. If you're set on this series, though, the no-memory-included Samsung HMX-H100 is probably the best deal of the bunch.

Review: Samsung HMX-H100 camcorder

 

A few months ago we took a look at Samsung's aging SC-HMX20C camcorder . The model was about a year old at that point but it still had a lot of life left in it. product cycles being what they are, it has subsequently been replaced with new models,...

Review Of The Samsung HMX-H100 Camcorder

 

Video input type: Camcorder; Optical sensor type: CMOS; Optical zoom: 10 x; Analog Video Format NTSC; Digital Video Format H.264; Camcorder Sensor Resolution: 2.2 megapixels.Camcorder Interpolated Still Resolution 4.7 megapixels ; LCD display - TFT...

Stylish body design; convenient size and shape make it easy and comfortable to use high performance Schneider lens; manual shutter speed and aperture controls

Autofocus lags precision; average video quality; SSD adds unnecessary price

The overall performance of the HMX100 wasn’t up to the mark and when paired against its competitors like the Sony Handy cam HDR-XR100 and the Canon Vixia HG20, it could barely keep up. The auto focus was not accurate and had some considerable lag ,...

Samsung HMX H100 HD Camcorder

 

Consumer testers raved about the Samsung HMX H100 HD Camcorder, saying they “loved it" and “it was very easy to use." They found navigating the menus, taking still photos, and recording videos very easy. The side grip pivots, which makes it...

Good for the Money

 

Bought this camera to film my military life for my blog. I like for the price the features it comes with. Although I wish it had night vision, and I don't see much difference between 720p and 1080i recording, nor do I see much difference between "fine"...

Small size. Uses SDHC memory. Decent Features

HD features. Battery power. Filming in low-light settings

Great HD camera

 

I chose this model specifically because it's nice to pop out the memory card and put it in the laptop to retrieve the videos and pics, vs. have to hook a cable up to retrieve onboard videos on the 104/5/6 models and take out the mem card. for anything...

Small, lightweight, near instant start up ; touch screen is nice ; handle/strap swivels to make awkward shots more comfortable ; 37 mm wide screen lens ; Time lapse recording

Not the best low light camera. But I've yet to really see one that does a great job in low light ; no hot shoe ; flash doesn't seem to be all that effective ; Can not use flash as a light source during video shoot

Great camcorder for outdoor sports events in the sun

 

We bought this Samsung HMX H100 Camcorder about five months ago from Best Buy for $350 (original price $440). Since then its shelf life has ended and therefore it has come down significantly in price. The Samsung HMX H100 Camcorder is allegedly a full...

Picture quality high in good light, feature rich, intuitive touch screen, light, small, smart design

Misleading advertising, on occasion files are corrupt, picture quality poor in dim light, screen small
