Samsung SC-X105L


Review: Though the Samsung SC-X105L hints at great things to come for tapeless camcorders, it also proves that those heady days haven't quite arrived yet. It offers an extremely compact design--it's smaller than you'd think--and a novel external camera...

Extremely compact design; novel external camera attachment; 512MB of onboard memory; long-lasting battery

Overlong start-up time; subpar video quality in nearly every respect

The Samsung SC-X105L has a fetching design and some novel features, but it suffers from subpar video quality.

Samsung SC-X105L Camcorder Review


The Samsung SC-X105L has some undeniably attractive features. It's rubber-coated, it's tiny as all get out, and it comes with an additional-4-inch long external lens. This feels like the kind of dubious product you might order out of the back of a spy...

Samsung Failure


This "camcorder/camera/MP3 Player/super cool Xtreme rad gizmo" is Samsung's slipshod attempt to capture a market. The video is remarkably poor along with an auto-focus that overshoots focus randomly. The still photo was put in as an after thought. The...

Really Bad in Still Pictures


I bought this camera one month before, and found it really bad in still pictures. And its so costly that I can buy sexy 6-8MPx camera.

Small and cute, and camcorder is okay

Worst still pictures and not worth buying it

"Small and cool look, limited function."


The video this camera takes is just about sub OK. Pay HEED: It has difficult menus, short battery life and don't worry about just having 12 min of video with the built-in 512M memory, if you use the LCD display you won't have much more battery life...

External cam, tapeless design
