Unbelievable Quality


It comes pre loaded with it's own software and it charges quite well when it is connected to your pc or Mac.

This is the best camcorder you will get for $500.00 or less. The picture quality is sharp, bright and clear, it has 3 low light settings, the menu is vast, yet easy to use and the buttons are well functioned and placed. It has a fancy and expensive...

Nice features in a small package


This Camcorder is more than I expected and you can do a lot with it. It has a lot of features for a small camcorder and is worth the money.

Fuzzy Video


The camera is easy to use and comfortable. The video quality is OK but the camera keeps losing focus and having to refocus. The included software is OK but not remarkable. Overall not very satisfying.

Product Specifications

Building on the success of the company's highly popular SMX F34 camcorder, the next-generation F-Series offers users additional features and functionality, including extended battery life and Samsung's 65x Intelli Zoom. With the Samsung SMX-F43, consumers will be able to go the distance and never miss a moment of the action. Users can be confident that their videos won't be washed out, too dark or out of focus with the help of the F-Series camcorders' Smart Auto feature. Smart Auto analyzes key elements of a scene's composition such as color, brightness, motion and subject and then automatically selects the appropriate scene mode which will produce the best results possible. The SMX-F43 offers eight different scene modes including night, white, indoor, macro, landscape, portrait, night portrait, and auto. Samsung's F-Series camcorder also comes equipped with face detection which automatically recognizes up to five faces and adjusts settings to ensure that each is properly within focus. Samsung also enhances the video recording experience for end-users thanks to unique features such as time lapse recording and animated thumbnails. 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. Samsung's animated thumbnail feature simplifies the way users search for video clips on the SMX-F43. Each video clip saved on the camcorder is represented by a small thumbnail on the LCD screen. When scrolling through one's videos, each thumbnail will provide a short playback of the video file when highlighted by the user allowing them to quickly preview each clip without having to view the entire shot. The F-Series camcorder also features a dedicated Photo mode which allows consumers to use the camcorder as a digital camera, snapping 1.9 mega-pixel still images with 1600 x 1200 resolution.
