Samsung HMX-H104 review

 

The H104 isn't an AVCHD camera but its video specifications are very similar. Video is recorded at resolutions up to 1,920x1,080 at 25fps in AVC format, just like cameras bearing the AVCHD logo. Audio is recorded in AAC rather than Dolby Digital...

Keenly priced, but suffers compatibility issues with editing software and does little else to stand out

This product was relatively fair in terms of use and ease of it, however the picture quality and sound quality was a bit of a let down, however I would still most definetly recommend this item to a friend, great for the price.
