Samsung SC-HMX10 review: Samsung SC-HMX10

 

Samsung SC-HMX10

Relatively sharp video; manual exposure controls; can focus fairly closely.

Sluggish autofocus; exposure problems; mediocre low-light quality and performance; no hardware image stabilization; annoying touch screen; potential software problems.

Despite an attractive price and some decent features, the frustrations of the Samsung SC-HMX10 outnumber its rewards.

Samsung SC-HMX10 Camcorder Review

 

The SC-HMX10, released in 2007, is Samsung's first high-definition camcorder. Employing a 720P H.264 compression, the company is well behind the competition in its technology, but the SC-HMX10 has a certain appeal. The compact body, stylish curves, and...

The Samsung SC-HMX10 is clearly the leader in a burgeoning class of camcorders we might call "budget HD." That is to say, among those camcorders not made by Canon, Sony, and Panasonic - all of which hover near or above the $1,000 mark - the HMX10 is...

Samsung SC-HMX10

 

The Samsung SC-HMX10 comes equipped with a single 1/4.5-inch CCD with a gross pixel count of 1,610,000. When shooting in adequate light, the image quality is better than expected. Samsung's track record has been less than stellar in standard...

Ease of use is one of the SC-HMX10's strengths, with one of the simplest menu systems we've seen. Most operation is performed via the touch screen LCD. Touch screens are clearly intuitive and great for beginners, but the accumulation of greasy...

Samsung SC-HMX10

 

Released in 2007 the SC-HMX10 is Samsung's first ever high definition camcorder. Shooting at full 720p the SC-HMX10 outputs H.264/MPEG-4 (.mp4) to its 8GB internal memory or loaded SDHC/MMC+ card. The SC-HMX10 takes still photos at three different...

Samsung SC HMX10

 

the video quality is very good, though short of superb. My other hi-def camcorder is the Canon HDV-20, which takes mini-DV tapes. You'll need to decide which route to take: memory card or mini-DV. If you're ready for the leap into all-digital land, the...

Relatively sharp video ; manual exposure controls

no hardware image stabilization

Superb camcorder

 

Samsung takes some interesting turns to deliver its semibudget-priced, flash-based HD camcorder. On one hand, the SC-HMX10 seems to offer quite a bit for the money, including 720p video, 8GB built-in memory, manual exposure controls, and a microphone...

Extremely easy to use, Video quality, size, Stability

simply super

A less than moving motion camera experience

 

The Samsung MX10 camcorder may look like a cute little DV cam, with its sleek styling, 16:9 display, and an industry standard SD memory card slot, you might think this little beauty were a great ?entry level? way into digital video. Well, sadly, this ...

Passible quality video, Vista compatible

Proprietary video format, not Mac compatible, paltry quality video
