Samsung SC-X105L MPEG4 Sports Camcorder

 

It does just about everything (video, pictures, music) except shoot good video.

Extremely portable and very light. Additional external cam included.

Mediocre video quality. Poor digital stills.

Image Quality

 

Samsung SC-X105L

Extremely compact design; novel external camera attachment; 512MB of onboard memory; long-lasting battery.

Overlong start-up time; subpar video quality in nearly every respect.

The Samsung SC-X105L has a fetching design and some novel features, but it suffers from subpar video quality.

Samsung SC-X105L Camcorder Review

 

The Samsung SC-X105L has some undeniably attractive features. It's rubber-coated, it's tiny as all get out, and it comes with an additional-4-inch long external lens. This feels like the kind of dubious product you might order out of the back of a spy...

Cool looking but not all that...

 

I got this cam so I would be able to take video whenever I wanted without having to lug around a bag. It fits in my jeans pocket and I can carry it around without worrying about it. Whenever I use it, a lot of people ask about it... the coolness factor...

Small size, portability, high coolness factor

Doesn't do anything very well, clunky and difficult to download video, short battery

Beautiful Camcorder, Terrible working!!

 

I tried to change my old analog Sony camcorder for a new small one, and I found it. A very small camcorder, beautiful in black, no weight to carry, it is very light, very impressing, using 1GB of memory build in. But it is really disappointing when you...

Very beautiful, very sportive, light, additional pin lens, accepts memory sticks

Video must be downloaded to a computer on real-time. Short battery. Bad video quality

Video! Stills! MP3! External Camera! Wow!!!!

 

I've been using this great little tapeless camcorder for the last week nonstop and wanted to start writing about it since nobody I've showed it to has any idea what it is!

Uses ALL sony memory sticks, Durable construction, Small (Deck of cards) size

so-so still (picture) quality, and the battery life leaves much to be desired
