Samsung SMX-C10


The Samsung SMX-C10 is a tiny, exotic looking camcorder whose size belies its substantial functionality. It's a direct competitor to pocket video cameras, many of which now record in HD. This unit's advantage lies in its superior flexibility and the...

The design on the Samsung SMX-C10 is unique to many other camcorders on the market

The small design may make it hard for users with large hands to hold and navigate

If portability, a large amount of memory and software to edit and share videos is important to you, the Samsung SMX-C10 is worth the price.

Samsung SMX-C10


At the sub-£150 price point, the Samsung SMX-C10 offers excellent value.

The C10 records standard definition footage to SD memory. Five different quality settings are available. The three TV modes record video in the regular PAL format of 720 x 576 pixels at 25fps, whilst the two Web modes use a more online-friendly 640 x...

Samsung SMX-C10GP


When folded closed the Samsung SMX-C10GP camcorder is extremely small, it's just 5.6 cm height, 11.4 cm long and less than 4cm wide! This makes this camcorder perfect for use on the go, it's certainly small and light enough to carry around with you....

i give it a 7 out of 10


eventhough it says that the built in program is seasy to upload video to youtube or email. i could not get that to work at all. outside of being able to share my videos and not being able to view them on my computer. i really enjoyed playing with it.

it is small and easy to use. takes good videos

it was not compatable with any of my video programs on my windows vista. i also thought it was a touch screen, but it is not

Excellent Value


I purchased this camera for my husband after a bit of research on the Flip and other "pocket" camcorders that use memory cards for storage. I was a bit reluctant at first but I found a great Black Friday deal for only $99 and thought "Why not?". I am...

Easy to use, multiple lighting settings, lightweight

No internal memory, no flash (low light setting works fine though)
