Samsung HMX-H200 Camcorder Review

 

The Samsung HMX-H200 is an entry-level camcorder that offers 1920 x 1080 Full HD video recording with a price tag of under $400. The camcorder doesn't have a load of controls or features, and it did run into some problems in our low light testing, but...

With its traditional design and basic feature set, there really isn't anything special about the Samsung HMX-H200. This is a somewhat disappointing observation for us, as Samsung has long been the proprietor of unique camcorders-both good and bad-that...

Low noise levels; Good sharpness and motion

Slightly subpar color scores; Disappointing low light sensitivity

Great price for HD video

 

I bought the base model and I did not realize that it did not have internal memory. Since I had not bothered to research the memory I bought the one at best buy next to the HD cameras. I need a card with faster write speed to record HD video at the...

Good Cam-Garbage Software!

 

It's a good camcamcorder. It's the software that makes me not like it very much. What good is being able to shoot good video if getting it to you PC is a slow and confusing mess. I mean HOURS to save to PC. Then HOURS to convert the videos. And it...

Good video, ease of use

The software is a glitchy piece of junk. Whoever was in charge of the software should be fired. It is mess trying to get video to your PC. It slows my computer to a crawl even though I have more than enough stuff inside to run the programs. I hate it

The flip out touchscreen failed to respond to our fingers. This occurred after only two weeks of purchasing the brand new camcorder. Samsung was contacted and the item has shipped back to them for repairs/replacement. I'm now leery of this supposed...
