Samsung SMX-K40

 

Seemed to be good but really difficult to use with my PC.

I am really annoyed actually as I bought this product with the recommendation of shop staff. I need to produce DVDs for a teaching course I am doing. I film myself teaching and then have to hand the DVD to my tutor who give it to the Examining Board. I...

Samsung SMX-K40

 

Very lightweight. Good picture if used in good sunlight. Easy to use. Sits comfortably in your hand.

Picture quality is only good if used in good sunlight. Low sunlight causes the picture to be grainy. The picture does not rotate with the camera. You have to keep the camera absolutely still whilst filming. I also bought an hdmi lead to plug the camera...

Samsung SMX-K40

 

Size and weight very good. Menu easy to navigate. Looks good. Uses reasonably cheap sd cards. Long recording time 16gb card, standard definition footage easily transfered to DVDs.

Poor picture quality, even when connected to a HDMI lead to a HD tv, picture worse than a 10 year old sony mini DV camcorder. Cannot keep up with fast or even slightly moving objects, lots of blurred images. Would class it as cheap and cheerful.

It is simply Shame to Schneider-Kreuznach

 

It is simply Shame to Schneider-Kreuznach that they couldn't enforce Samsung to follow high QA standards. Period. Germany's optics is famous for quality. But, the camcorder is not manufactured in Germany. It is, let me quote, Designed and Made in...
