Samsung HMX-H205 é uma ótima escolha para quem quer uma Full HD portátil

 

Armazenamento de dados em um disco., Qualidade de imagem, LCD sensível ao toque, Foco

Não há saída para microfone externo., Preço

Com zoom óptico de 20X e SSD de 32GB, essa filmadora de mão sai na frente das tradicionais, mas não oferece saída para microfone externo. No entanto, o preço até vale pelos recursos que a filmadora oferece ao usuário.

Consumer review by: AF IT Guy (newegg.com)

Bad QC and response from Samsung

 

Samsung should have sent a replacement camera and offered to assist with possibly helping to fix the video. I know that's a stretch, but an automated chat session and then a "second teir" phone rep that doesn't know the cameras feature set at all. Come...

It has a lot of features and for the money seemed like a good idea. But

The company I work for purchased this for a very important event. We got the camcorder a couple of days before the event and tested it not noticing the foggy haze to the left and right of center shot. This turned out to be that whoever assembled this...

Consumer review by: jtrag (newegg.com)

The HMX-H205 is probably the best HD Camcorder you can get for the money. Period!

 

JUST GET IT. TRUST ME! (Unless of course you want to spend hundreds more on another comparable HD Camcorder)

Excellent camera for the money! Very easy to use touch screen menu and easy to navigate buttons ; This camera takes extremely good HD Videos in full 1080i or 720p as long as you have adequate lighting; although, this camera is probably the best in it's...

Sometimes it's not the greatest in low light conditions. Then again, what HD Camcorder is? lol ; I really have nothing bad to say about this camera. It exceeded my expectations by far and I think it's worth every penny. I'm very happy with my purchase
