Samsung HMX-H106 Camcorder Review


The Samsung HMX-H106 ($849.99 MSRP) is a mid-range camcorder that comes with a huge, 64GB internal solid state drive. The camcorder is a bit larger than most mid-range models, but it has Samsung's unique and stylish design as well as some decent...

The Samsung HMX-H106 is a solid mid-range camcorder, there's no doubt about that. Its performance was good in most of our testing categories, and it did better with video sharpness than every mid-range model we've reviewed except for the Canon HF20....

REVIEW – Samsung HMX-H106 SSD HD Camcorder


If a picture is worth a thousand words, then a high-definition video has got to be worth millions. There are some pocket camcorders out there that are capable of recording HD video, but very few can truly measure up to their more expensive...

Samsung HMX-H106SP


High Def (1080i/720p) camcorder using 1/4.5-inch 2.2MP CMOS sensor. 64GB solid state drive storing MPEG-4/H.264 footage. 10x optical zoom with 37mm wideangle setting. 2.7-inch, 230,000-dot touchscreen LCD. Mini-HDMI out, SDHC slot. Measures...

The H106SP is a perfectly decent budget camcorder suffering from the addition of a unnecessary, expensive solid state drive. Buy the cheaper version, pick up a few cheap memory cards and put the rest into your MacBook Air savings account. Samsung...

Samsung HMX-H106SP review


A novel idea, but the SSD drives the price up and the camcorder itself is poor

Loads of space for HD footage

Touchscreen a pain to use, autofocus shonky, noisy images

Solid Buy


For the price you aren't going to find a better product. Easy to use and feature rich. It is perfect for anyone that wants a solid hassle free experience. You can even expand the space by adding an SDHC card to this which allows you to squeeze more...

To many to list really. If I had to pick a few I would say the fact that this is SSD and holds up to 12 hours of footage. The quality. It is also very easy to use. Transferring video and images is as easy as plugging the USB cable in and hitting...

None really. I am perfectly happy with this one. It has everything I was looking for

SL720 Red


The manual is useless. It only shows you how to get started on camera. It show nothing about any of the camera functions in details. But that's okay because this camera is so intuitive and simple to use.

I love all the functions. The camera is much smaller than I had expected. It is not something I want to drop on the floor

The video processing may take a while but it is understandable. This is probably my fault but my camera actually froze when it was processing videos. I think it was because I ran out of space on my SDHC card. I talked with a live chat person and they...

Great feature set for the price


This is a great camera for the money. I had originally purchased an Olympus fe that felt cheap, and returned for the Samsung. This camera feels solid and has really nice features, image quality, hd video all for under $200. Hard to beat and a definite...

Solid feel and build, hd video recording with sound and good wide angle zoom. Large bright lcd with simple menus for shot selections. Useful scene selections that are easy to navigate. Macro feature nice for extreme closeups. Links up directly to...

Lcd screen has one hot pixel ; Battery meter shows three bars then was dead 2 minutes later, and can only charge battery through camera with plug or usb

A solid performer


For the price, and with 720p video at 30fps, you can't beat this camera at this price. Its not a dslr, but for a cheap compact, this camera is really quite solid, I am pleasantly surprised after taking a chance on it. Cheaper than a flip video hd and...

Feels solid in the hand, 720p video at 30fps, Good zoom range, optical image stabilization. Ok iso performance below 800. 800 and above starts to fall off, which is expected for compacts at this price. 3" lcd, is nice, although pixel count is on the...

Slow, confusing menus. Audio quality is not great in movies, there is a lot of feedback/static
