Read the full Samsung HMX-H200 review

The Samsung HMX-H200 doesn’t quite have the sense of polish found in the top camcorder models. The Smart Auto system is a pale imitation of Panasonic’s Intelligent Auto, and its one-touch focus system doesn’t include exposure. But it does have a decent level of features, and video performance is also very good for the price. So whilst this isn’t the Samsung camcorder that entirely brings the Korean manufacturer on par with its Japanese competitors, it does compete very well on value.

@cliche Glad to hear it! I still think this is the best budget HD camcorder on the market.

I got the SD60 as well and captured some amazing video. Check out icurafu on youtube for a video of a Panda (at about 20x optical) at the Adelaide zoo. I'm very happy with the result and would only fault the battery life. Even the Stills look good at a low MP.
