Samsung HMX-Q10 review

 

The Samsung HMX-Q10 made headlines when it was unveiled at CES back in January 2011, largely thanks to its flexible design that makes it easy for left-handed moviemakers to use. Samsung's SwitchGrip means that the camcorder is ambidextrous so it can...

SwitchGrip, compact design, easy to use, decent video quality

Slightly uncomfortable to hold, awkward zoom, no mic input, photo capture lag

Great for left-handed users but not as comforable to hold as some rivals models. However, the HD video quality, compact design and ease of use help to sweeten the pill

Samsung HMX-Q10 review

 

The Q10 is a budget camcorder which is designed to be held in either hand - unlike most designs, which are impossible to use left-handed. The hand strap is just a thick rubbery band with an adjustable sliding buckle; it's very neat and when retracted...

An impressive budget camcorder, especially for those who like to film left-handed

TIPA Award!

La HMX-Q10 di Samsung è la prima videocamera al mondo dotata di Switch Grip, l'impugnatura adatta alle due mani. Finalmente, i registi mancini godranno della stessa facilità d'uso dei destri! In base alla posizione, il sensore magnetico all'interno...

Samsung HMX-Q10 review

 

With large, obvious control switch grip operation, the Full HD Samsung puts convenience at the forefront of its spec

Very affordable given its Full HD capabilities; as diminutive as an, erm, loo roll; HDMI out port; SDHC card compatibility; easy to use

Plasticky feel and basic-looking design seems engineered to match a certain budget price point

Image quality is not quite as sharp as the Canon nor Panasonic and the built-in microphone once again picks up operational noise. The zoom is commendably silent however, even if it’s less smooth in operation than its peers. Not a bad choice for those...

Samsung HMX-Q10 - Two-handed HD Fun

 

The 1080i-shooting HMX-Q10 from Samsung is targeted at everyone, even those who are primarily left-handed. Other goodies include a 10x optical zoom and touchscreen controls. As usual, we put it through the paces to give you the details.

Suits both left and right-handed users; Accurate colors; Fun digital effects

Body has slight plastic feel; Limited number of image controls

Samsung HMX-Q10BP

 

As long as you don't do a lot of low-light shooting, the Q10 is a cute little full HD camcorder designed for left- and right-handed users.

Very easy to use ; Left- or right-handed operation ; Small and lightweight

Low-light quality leaves much to be desired

The Q10 is incredibly easy for just about anyone to pick up and use, regardless of their experience with video cameras. What lets it down is the very poor low-light recording.
