Samsung HMX-H200 review

 

Samsung's latest entry-level camcorder only shoots 1080i HD video but has a tempting price tag. Is it an upgrade from your Flip?

Won’t win awards for its looks, but a fine performer that punches well above its price point

Samsung HMX-H200 HD Camcorder Reviewed

 

The audio isn't the best but, the Samsung HMX-H200 is a simple, inexpensive camera that works great for capturing memories. Simply put: it covers the basics at a low budget.

Affordable, Compact, Good Image Quality

Poor Audio Quality, Limited features, LCD viewfinder only

Samsung HMX-H200

 

Few extras, and problems in our low light testing, but decent performance at a bargain price

Low noise levels; Good sharpness and motion

Slightly subpar color scores; Disappointing low light sensitivity
