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

 

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
