If only they'd spent a few pence adding a mic socket...
Having owned this little cam for almost a year now (shows you how on-time these reviews are.. wink wink) I must say it's a nice little cam the picture quality is good and I love the fact that it's small enough to carry around in your pocket. The only complains I have about it is 1. it does not have a regular hand strap, so it feels as if it's going to fall out of your hand all the time, and 2. the whole angle lens is a solid pain to get use to, don't be surprised if the first few videos you make will be mostly of the sky.
the image stabiliser doesn't really look that good
Yes, unbelievably Samsung only sent us this camcorder a few weeks ago. But as it's still available and a very good deal, we thought we'd review it anyway.
Cliche, The image stabilizer is a bit on the shakey side, it's good when you want to zoom in on something far away but then you really really have to try hard to keep a steady hand. When you zoomed all the way in it takes about a second for the stabilizer to lock-in, once it's locked in it does just a good enough job to reduce any small unintended handshaking. It will definitely NOT work when recording while you walk.
thanks for the info Peter !
