Affordable standard-def camcorder optimised for YouTube uploads and video blogging.

 

Despite its prominent YouTube branding, the VP-MX20 is not really a Net-cam; at least, not in the traditional sense. Nevertheless, it should prove adequate for casual users who require a cheap point-and-shoot camera.

H.264 AVC recording, fun Interval/time-lapse mode, pretty cheap (for a camcorder)

No still images mode, sub-par image quality, pretty expensive (for a Net-cam)

If you're after the camcorder experience but don't need high definition, the Samsung VP-MX20 is an affordable standard definition shooter. Decent battery life and long recording times combined with the convenience of SD cards make this a worthwhile...

Large screen ; Expandable memory ; Swivel grip

Only standard definition

Conclusion The Samsung VP-MX20 is certainly a well-priced camcorder. If Web-sharing is your main aim, the Flip Video Ultra is cheaper but lacks many of the features, or for slightly more cash you could go for the JVC Everio GZ-MG330, which boasts a...

Samsung has changed the image of its camcorder range considerably over the last year, culminating in the excellent VP-HMX20. Stylistically, the VP-MX20 has a lot in common with its bigger brother. But where the HMX20 is a heavy-hitting HD model, the...
