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...

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

A quality SD/SDHC camcorder with 1080p recording

Decent video quality ; 20x optical zoom ; Touchscreen controls ; Photo mode

No supplied mini HDMI cable ; Lens cover design

Samsung HMX-H200

 

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

There are shutter and aperture priority modes available, too, where you set one parameter and the camcorder takes care of the other. The shutter can be configured from 1/50th to 1/10,000th, and the aperture from F1.8 to F16, although it’s not possible...

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's latest entry-level camcorder only shoots 1080i HD video but has a tempting price tag. Is it an upgrade from your Flip?

Won't win awards for its looks, but a fine performer that punches well above its price point
