Samsung SMX-C14 Flash/SD Card Camcorder Reviewed


Gone are the days of spending hours getting video off your camera, onto the computer and published to the web. Companies such as JVC are pumping out camcorders that are able to upload video onto YouTube with the click of a button, and Samsung's SMX-C14...

Comfortable design ; One-touch YouTube upload ; Very user-friendly

Low-quality video and still pictures ; Short on manual adjust settings

A good, user-friendly camera, but it falls short in settings and quality

Good Basic Camcorder ”


This Samsung Camcorder is the first one I've ever owned. I wanted a camcorder that was basic and inexpensive and this one fit the bill. It has features including One Touch Sharing, 160 minutes of battery time, 10x optical zoom, Face Detection, and USB...

The picture quality would not be good nough on a TV above 32", SD or HD. Even worse then on the Legira FS21 which I used afterwards.

Very easy to use, plug in and go.

Not a acceptable picture quality to viw on a larger set.

Product Specifications

The SMX-C14 is perfect for the on-the-go consumer. It features 10x optical zoom paired with hyper image stabilization to help reduce blurry footage. The camcorder features a 230,000-dot, swiveling 2.7-inch wide LCD screen, which allows users to effortlessly frame their subjects and review their footage. It also has a substantial battery life, providing more than two hours and forty minutes of record time on a single charge. In addition, the SMX-C14 boasts Samsung's active angle lens, which was first seen on its full-HD HMX-R10. The intuitive design of the active angle lens helps reduce fatigue by allowing users to grip the camcorder in a more relaxed manner, easing the overall stress on their wrist and elbow. Unlike traditional camcorders, the relaxed grip also removes the LCD screen from the user's line of sight, enabling them to always keep an eye on their subject while recording (which should allow you to pursue subjects on even the most extreme angles). And did Samsung mentions that it features Samsung's unique Touch of Color (ToC) design? Yes, folks, that means a hint of color is naturally blended into the deep black body of the camcorder for an attractive crystalline appearance. The SMX-C14 is the first camcorder ever to feature the ToC design. But that's not all! Samsung also enhances the video recording experience for end-users thanks to several unique features, including time-lapse recording, animated thumbnails and a versatile charging system. Time-lapse recording allows users to program the camcorder to record at a pre-set interval of one image every one, three, five, 10, 15 or 30 seconds. Time-lapse recording is especially useful for condensing extremely long events, such as rolling clouds on a sunny day, into a short, easy to-view video. When it comes to storage, the SMX-C14 features internal Samsung flash memory and is expandable via an SD/SDHC memory card slot. Thanks to H.264 compression, which drastically enhances recording times when used with standard definition video, users can record over six hours of footage of built-in memory.
