Samsung HMX-H104

 

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.

Review: Samsung HMX-H104 HD camcorder

 

This HD camcorder is stylish and feature-packed, but it simply doesn't deliver the kind of high-quality HD images we expect.

The most trumpeted feature of the HMX-H104 is the use of a 16GB solid-state drive (SSD) instead of a hard drive or internal flash memory. However, this doesn’t seem to offer any real advantage, especially when some of its rivals offer more storage for...

James puts the Samsung HMX-H104 high definition camcorder through its paces.

A similar array of shooting resolutions and qualities are available to the HMX20. The top resolution is 1,920 x 1,080 Full HD, operating at 25 interlaced frames per second. But you can also record at 1,280 x 720 and 720 x 576 with 50 progressive frames...

Samsung HMX-H104 review

 

The H104 isn't an AVCHD camera but its video specifications are very similar. Video is recorded at resolutions up to 1,920x1,080 at 25fps in AVC format, just like cameras bearing the AVCHD logo. Audio is recorded in AAC rather than Dolby Digital...

Keenly priced, but suffers compatibility issues with editing software and does little else to stand out

Samsung HMX-H104 review

 

The Samsung HMX-H104 is one of Samsung's first serious attempts to join well-established players such as Sony, Panasonic, and Canon in selling high-definition camcorders.

Disappointed

 

Easiest upgrade to a smart phone you can do. I was able to add several apps that I couldn't with my phone's meager onboard memory

Only worked for about a month. Card was suddenly unreadable. Lost all my pictures and apps instantly. I am now back to using the 2Gig card that came with my phone. I thought for sure since it was a Samsung card in a Samsung phone I would have zero...

Great but,

 

I purchased the red, and it is a beautiful color. This is a great cam corder, but of course it had to have one flaw. That being it has no light. The zoom is fantastic. Would have given it five stars except for the lack of light factor.
