Samsung SMX-F34 review: Samsung SMX-F34

 

Samsung SMX-F34

Comfortable, compact design; 34x zoom lens; 16GB internal memory; good audio quality; relatively easy to operate.

Slow autofocus performance; long zoom lens lacks optical image stabilization.

The Samsung SMX-F34 is a serviceable inexpensive standard-definition camcorder, but the money goes more to storage and the megazoom lens than to video quality.

Samsung SMX-F34 Review

 

Budget digital camcorders are often on people's shopping list, especially with the holiday season approaching fast. The Samsung SMX-F34 falls into that category, being under $300. This digital camcorder does come with some nice features, but it also...

Samsung SMX-F34 review

 

Aside from design, what separates pocket minicamcorders like the Flip from camcorders like the Samsung SMX-F34 is not video quality, but optical zoom and storage capacity. The F34 features 16GB of internal memory as well as an SDHC card slot for...

Nice little camera

 

I first thought this camera was going to be a cute little kick around camera... good for taking to the park for shots of the kids playing, etc... it does more than I thought... the only issue I have is the battery length... you can record up to 8 hours...

not bad at all

 

I noticed the battery cannot be charged via USB/computer. Mot my electronics can nowadays so it's a shame you need the charger cord for this. All-in-all i'd recommend this, ive seen MUCH worse camcorders for about this price. This is a good selection...

Very good quality ; Easy to learn controls ; Easy to hook up to USB on computer ; Long lasting battery ; Strong microphone ; Decent picture quality

Sometimes while indoors, I noticed it has trouble focusing. It will constantly autofocus which can be annoying. Doesn't seem to happen nearly as much outside

SAMSUNG SMX-F34RN Red 1/6" CCD 2.7" LCD 34X Optical Zoom 16GB Digital Memory Camcorder

 

Works fine. The horizontal lines the other guy is complaining about is interlacing. There is a setting in your decoding software on your computer that will fix it, deinterlacing. Also you can play the videos through your AV cable to your tv and there...

Instruction manual states MAX file size is 1.8gb. So this is why it will stop recording an hour in, just hit record again and you can merge the files on your PC after
