Samsung VP-HMX20 video review



Read the full Samsung VP-HMX20 review

Samsung's previous camcorders have tended to be cheap and cheerful affairs but with the VP-HMX20 it has taken a step up to the big league. It has image quality and features to vie with the best but is still very reasonably priced. In fact, at under £500 the VP-HMX20 is one of the cheapest models in its class. So it's a real contender on every level.

Nice review, looks like a nice camera. I like the fact that they label it as having a "HD lens". i.e. the lens can resolve 2MP images - wow!!

I think HMX20 is attractive cam with good price. It offers easy interface and powerful features; 2.7" Touch screen (just operated by finger touch), 1080p FullHD resolution and still camera mode, slow motion video at 300fps (really nice to review recorded footage).

Plus, 6.4Mpixel sensor and 10xoptical zoom is not bad. Also, Memory capability is expandable (8GB internal memory & SDHC/MMC+ card slot). Good shape (swivel grip) of cam.

"One slight disappointment is that the HMX20 doesn't record AVCHD"

This is a good thing, because samsung are following the ISO/IEC MPEG-4 Part 10 standard which AVCHD certainly is not.

It's a shame that AVCHD breaks the standards just to be compatible with recording on dvd's.

Go Samsung!
