Samsung HMX-F80BP

 

This low cost camcorder has a decent selection of features and reasonable image quality.

Great value, 52x optical zoom, iSCENE modes and manual focusing

Mediocre low-light performance, No Full HD, just 720p, Digital image stabilisation

LOVE IT!

 

I love it and my friends hate that I love it! It is small and lightweight and convenient enough to take everywhere. Seriously, who doesn't love having every embarrassing moment documented for eternity?

Seems to be a good machine

 

It was a Christmass present for my wife. She shot a lot of Christmass video with it and I managed to lose it all trying to run it on to DVD. I still have not figured out how to do that.

If you are starting out and learning recommend this camcorder.

 

With the PC software and the features included on this model will lend itself to the beginner level with good results.
