Samsung HMX-H105

 

Samsung attempts to differentiate the bulk of its HD camcorder line by incorporating SSD--solid-state drive--storage compared to competitors' traditional hard disks, regular old built-in flash, or simply removable flash cards. This is a rather flimsy...

Attractive design; comfortable rotating grip; manual shutter speed and aperture controls

SSD adds unnecessary price premium; so-so video quality; slow, inaccurate autofocus

An interesting design doesn't offset the so-so video quality and performance, especially for the higher priced HMX-H106, H105, and H104. If you're set on this series, though, the no-memory-included Samsung HMX-H100 is probably the best deal of the bunch.

Samsung HMX-H105 First Impressions Camcorder Review

 

After last year's impressive showing from Samsung with the SC-HMX20, we're interested to see what the company has in store for its 2009 high definition lineup. We already had some hands-on time with the unique HMX-R10, a high definition video-still...

As for the rest, there are things to praise and reasons to be skeptical. Samsung has cut its still features significantly, choosing instead to bill the HMX-R10 as the premiere video-still hybrid. This will be a disappointment to those that like to fall...

Unit started to give problems after 4 only four days

 

The lack of support! The early failure! the fact that if a problem does occur all data is lost due to the way it is constructed. The menu system is also more complex than it needs to be. Following the manual to connect to a computer brings up a system...

It's looks, it's ease of use and the functionality are great

The camera as not undergone enough testing prior to release. If it had it would not have failed so quickly and all of my memories of our holiday would not be un recoverable

Great Camcorder

 

This camera does everything I could ever ask for but the software that comes packaged with it is a bit lacking.

Lightweight, easy to understand, super fast processing

Editing software is not up to par

Samsugn Fail ”

 

We bought this video camera a couple months before our first child was born. We enjoyed using it the first few months and then we ended up getting iPhones that had video capability and the video camera fell to the wayside. Fast forward a few months and...
