Samsung SMX-C20

 

The band may be turning up to play the swansong for standard definition, but Samsung's SMX-C20 keeps marching to a different tune - for now.

If you delve into the main menu, time lapse options are available, allowing you to record a frame every one, three, five, ten, 15 or 30 seconds, for a duration of 24, 48, or 72 hours, or for as long as your media can hold. Annoyingly, back light...

Samsung SMX-C20 review

 

A quirky, fun camcorder that records only standard-definition video and low-resolution photos, the Samsung SMX-C20 would have scored higher if it had been just a little cheaper.

Samsung Memory Cam : Samsung C20 Memory Cam

 

This is a small Camcorder weighing little more than the budget ‘Flip' type units. However this unit has all the abilities of a Camcorder but is small and light so easy is easy to slip into a pocket or bag and is easy to use.

There a one touch button to allow you to upload video to You Tube. It is possible to store around three hours of video on an 8GB card. The internal battery should give you more than 150 minutes of shooting time on a single charge

Review of Samsung MemoryCam SMX-C20RP camcorder

 

The best looking camera, a delight to handle and excellent zoom. Drawbacks: Lack of HD really shows – video quality isn’t in the same league as the HD cameras. Quite bad jagged effects on straight edges when the camera is moved.

I hated the camera

 

We bought this camera to take video of our wedding that just happend on the 10th. 3 minutes and 40 seconds into the wedding (as I was walking down the aisle) it froze up!! Freezing up is the best feature I found all weekend. I did take some pictures...

Worked perfectly

 

Took this item on vacation for a week and it did great. Along with the 16gb memory card it did everything expected and only had to be charged once during the entire week. Would recommend.
