Samsung HMX-Q10 - Two-handed HD Fun

 

The 1080i-shooting HMX-Q10 from Samsung is targeted at everyone, even those who are primarily left-handed. Other goodies include a 10x optical zoom and touchscreen controls. As usual, we put it through the paces to give you the details.

Samsung Q10 Camcorder – Small, Affordable and Virile

 

The digital camera and the camcorder market around the globe is in difficulty these days, and the simple reason for that being the fact that almost every smartphone comes with a respectable camera or camcorder, which can deliver respectable quality...

Easy to use, Great Quality and Unbeatable Price!

 

For a mom on the go, this is the perfect camera to be able to throw in a purse to get excellent videos. Easy to charge, easy to connect to TV easy to upload SDCH card to computer for DVDs, Facebook or YouTube. I am not a 'techie' so this ... Expand...

Ridiculously easy to use. Very small. Excellent Zoom. Light weight. Easy to upload videos, no extra software. Comes on easily and powers off by itself so you keep battery life. For $198 on Amazon its a steal

In low lighting it takes a second to focus, but its really not a problem. On a 42" HDTV, the quality wasn't perfect, but on my 27" MAC it was great! Still shots are ok, this is not really meant for still photos

Great Camera - I use this daily in a clinical setting

H.264 format, excellent video quality in 720p, I can plug the SD card into my Mac Book Pro and start editing directly on the video - no conversion - no AVCHD converter

Low Light performance is poor. Need a way to capture video without using the screen - save battery power

So simple it's ridiculous.

 

Perfect for myself, a non-expert family man just looking for a good quality product at a good price. Get it.

Very short time between opening the screen and starting to record, full 180 degree rotation of touch screen, and a nice looking compact design

Just bought a couple weeks ago, haven't found any

What an improvement over tape camcorders. Easy to use.

 

Switch grip is as easy as portrayed. Zoom works well, although takes a few practices to use it smoothly. Battery and memory cards are easy to load. Small size makes it easy to carry and pack. Affordable

Very small...so it fits better in small to medium-sized hands

Great little camera

 

I bought this camera to do a time lapse documentary on an aircraft build, so my requirements were a bit different than most. First and foremost I wanted good quality pictures, which on other sites reviews are all much better than the Tosh_ba that was...

Long battery life ; Quality Construction ; Built in lens cover ; Variable time lapse options ; Great quality

No remote ; Limited zoom ; Awkward external power/USB connection
