Samsung HD Camcorder VP-HMX10C -

Samsung VP-HMX10 (XSA)


After a frankly ridiculous amount of procrastination, Samsung is finally set to release its first ever high-definition camcorder, the VP-HMX10. As imp...

Affordable HD, decent video performance, external microphone jack, swivelling hand grip

Cheap plastic build quality, 'only' 720p, occasional noise issues

It's been a long time coming, but Samsung's first high-definition camcorder has arguably been worth the wait. If you're after an affordable high-def camera to use with your shiny new LCD TV, the VC-HMX10 represents good value for money.

Samsung VP-HMX10 Progressive HD Camcorder


The HMX10 makes a decent entry-level HD camcorder — with an awful lot of limitations.

Simple operation ; Very light ; Small and easy to carry

Cheap construction ; Awful hand-strap ; 720p only

Ultimately, the HMX10 is a real compromise camera. It's not up there with the best of the true 1080p camcorders, and if you're after something like that, the very similar Panasonic HDC-SD9 has the same size advantages — but then it costs almost twice...
