Samsung HMX-S16BP


De zomer staat weer voor de deur! Hét moment om een nieuwe camcorder voor de zomervakantie te kopen. Nu kun je voor minder dan € 200 een simpele Flip aanschaffen, maar als je jouw herinneringen écht van het scherm wilt laten spatten, dan ga je...

opname in 720p ; goed op de automaat

geen hulpmiddelen om geluid en belichting te monitoren ; fotoknop zit op onmogelijk plek

De camcorder van Samsung is goed, maar zeker geen topper. Daarvoor mist het een aantal geavanceerde functies, zoals zebraondersteuning, volumemeters en focusassistent. Film je voornamelijk in automatisch stand of wil je de videobestanden na afloop...

El competido mundo de las videocámaras tiene en su formato de almacenamiento uno de los apartados más delicados en la compra de un nuevo modelo, cintas y discos ópticos van quedando en el pasado ante la evolución de las tarjetas de memoria, los discos...

A estas alturas de la película y teniendo en cuenta que estamos ante un desarrollo de Samsung, el resto de especificaciones rozan a gran nivel, al menos sobre el papel, empezando por la grabación Full HD (1080i), y una pantalla táctil giratoria de 3.5...

Samsung HMX-S16


De HMX-S16 profileert zich als klassebak, met een paar zeer interessante eigenschappen. Wat dacht je bijvoorbeeld van wifi? Niet meteen iets wat je op een videocamera verwacht, maar wel goed gevonden.

Opslagruimte, wifi

Omvang, prijs

Trouwens, de reden waarom deze camera duurder is, heeft te maken met het stickertje SSD 64 GB. De bijna identieke S10 ruilt de interne opslag in voor een geheugenkaartsleuf, dumpt de wifi en kost prompt 230 euro minder. Eigenlijk weet de HMX-S16 me wel...

La vida corre y, a veces, se nos va de las manos como agua entre los dedos. No la dejes ir completamente, y quédate con un cachito de ella en video.

Samsung HMX-S16: Full HD kamera (video)


Hlavním lákadlem této kamery je Wi-Fi. Videa můžete posílat přímo do televizoru, nebo přes přehrávač s DLNA podporou.

Samsung HMX-S16 má dobrou šanci obstát ve srovnání se stejně drahou konkurencí. Obrazová kvalita je na velmi slušné úrovni, funkční výbava vynikající a pokud máte Wi-Fi televizor Samsung, využijete i bezdrátový přenos videa. Lepší obrazovou kvalitu...

high end Camcorder


pretty expensive camera but you get what you pay for. I am extremely satisfied. I would suggest the extra warranty. I have had no experiences with Samsung customer service but I see numerous reviews of bad experiences. I own other high end Samsung...

My first high end camcorder and I am not dissappointed. It takes beautiful 1080P full HD quality pictures and movies. The large 64gb solid state drive is plenty big for the average user but with the card slot you would be hard pressed to fill it. The...

This is not really a con but there is a learning curve to operate thru the menu.....LOTS of features and not for the average user to just use and enjoy. It took me awhile to get comfortable navigating the menu ; The unit powers up when you open the...

Pro: value, convenient, low light; Con: menu ease,


PROS:Camocorder is loaded with features--some useful some I found neat but less practical. The 64GB SSD provides 3+ hours at the 1080 60i XF setting (highest quality), which is plenty for me. The edit-combine feature lets you combine two clips into a...

I video del futuro!!!!


Fantastico prodotto appena lanciato dalla Samsung. Si tratta di una videocamera decisamente rivoluzionaria grazie alle caratteristiche tecniche sviluppate da Samsung per questo che è destinato a diventare il modello di punta (almeno per il momento)...

Qualità eccellente

probabilmente il prezzo
