GOOD GEAR GUIDE - BEST BUYS

Expert review by: Chris Jager (goodgearguide.com.au)

Samsung VP-HMX20C

 

When it comes to high-definition video, Samsung has always been the shyest camcorder manufacturer of the bunch.

1080p 'Full HD' resolution, lots of modes and features for the asking price, user-friendly interface, 250fps slow-motion mode

Poor night-time performance, no HDMI port on camera body, slow-motion has limited functionality

The Samsung VP-HMX20C might not be perfect, but for $1199 it ticks all the right boxes. Users will be particularly impressed by its Full HD resolution and extensive recording options. Without question, it's one of the best 'value choices' on the market.

Samsung VP-HMX20C

 

The new HD camcorder from Samsung takes the stress out of recording with its great form factor, simple operation, and easy video transfer and viewing. Just remember to stock up on high capacity memory cards when going on long vacations to make the most...

Small; Light; Easy to use; Can shoot in HD; Memory card can be used

8GB is a little too small; Some overexposures in photos
