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...

Samsung HMX-H200 HD Camcorder Reviewed

 

The audio isn't the best but, the Samsung HMX-H200 is a simple, inexpensive camera that works great for capturing memories. Simply put: it covers the basics at a low budget.

Affordable, Compact, Good Image Quality

Poor Audio Quality, Limited features, LCD viewfinder only

Samsung HMX-H200

 

Few extras, and problems in our low light testing, but decent performance at a bargain price

Low noise levels; Good sharpness and motion

Slightly subpar color scores; Disappointing low light sensitivity

Samsung adds new sensor technology to improve image quality, but still keeps the emphasis on value.

Samsung HMX-H200 review

 

The Samsung HMX-H200 is not without its foibles, but, if you can overlook these, you'll find it's a competent Full HD camcorder that's easy to use and won't break the bank.

20x optical zoom ; Easy-to-use touchscreen controls ; Useful optical image stabiliser ; HDMI output

Slightly soft video image ; Not great in low light ; Poorly placed microphone and buttons ; HDMI cable not included

With 1080p video, touchscreen controls and a 20x optical zoom, the HMX-H200 is an uncomplicated, well-equipped camcorder that represents fairly good value. When you consider that shelling out less than £50 more will bag you a much better entry-level...

Samsung HMX-H200 review

 

Samsung's HMX-H200 is technically the entry-level model in a range that contains two more powerful brothers, but it's far from underpowered. While ‘entry-level' all too often means no frills, no fun and no upgrade path, in the H200's case it simply...
