To the point

 

Bought two of these to record presentations. The zoom is ridiculous. 65x zoom...From 30ft away you could read the fine print on a business card.

Very Straight forward video cam. Compact, Extremely light weight. Powers on and opens shutter when opening the viewfinder. Viewfinder/screen very responsive to real-time video. 1 minute of video was about 35mb on HD settings. Plugs in and opens...

Should come with a case... nothing fancy, but something. Fixed storage, keep this in mind. I won't need to record for more than an hour so this wasn't an issue for me. Option for external memory card too but that doesn't help mid-record

Product Specifications

With the K-series, consumers can enjoy near Full HD quality video for the price of a standard definition camcorder. The SMX-K45 records exceptional standard definition video at a resolution of 720 x 480 which can then be played back on an HDTV in near Full HD quality thanks to advanced upscaling technology and HDMI connectivity. The SMX-K45 also offers one of Samsung's most powerful zoom lenses. Consumers have a 65x intelli-zoom at their fingertips which enhances their ability to capture any moment they see no matter how far away they may be. Significantly more reliable than a standard digital zoom which negatively affects the quality of the image, Samsung's intelli-zoom allows users to go beyond the camcorder's 52x optical zoom. The K-series also features Samsung's advanced optical image stabilizer, ensuring that videos taken will be shake-free, when using the camcorder's full 65x intelli-zoom. Furthermore, the camcorder's world class Schneider Kreuznach lens delivers the quality and performance needed to help capture the most impressive video possible.
