Samsung SC-MX10 Digital Camcorder


Digital cameras revolutionized the consumer photography scene and it seems that we are currently undergoing a similar revolution in the arena of digital videos. Up until now, most digital camcorders have been too expensive for the average consumer....

Very affordable price point, - Comfortable form factor and size, - Image stabilization is incredibly fluid, - Video quality is decent, - 34x optical zoom

Mode button is awkward to press, - Proprietary video codec, - Video can be grainy, - No option for high-definition video, - No internal memory

At under $300 (I found it on Amazon for about $215), the Samsung SC-MX10 Flash Memory Camcorder could be a very decent choice for the average consumer who wants an affordable digital video solution. There is no optical viewfinder, so you'll need to...

Good little camera


There is a cradle available for the camera (I guess for charging) but nothing to charge batteries on their own. At 120 minutes, I'm hoping to find one or two more batteries for my up-coming honeymoon. The manual states that the camera can accept up to...

Great camera for the price, especially if you can get some Dell discounts off of it. Easy to use and learn and the SD option is nice as it keeps the camera light and excess "baggage" minimal by not having to carry tapes or extra discs. The widescreen...

The manual isn't very clear about anything specific to the camera. It mentions record times for 325p and 720p and this camera records in 480p. I can only assume that the recording time will fall somewhere in the middle.

Samsung SC-MX10


This camcorder is great ,has an excellent big screen, and is astoundingly easy to use. The model MX10 is the cheapest - so no built in memory. So, I bought a 4GB Transcend high speed SD card. Worked well. I had great results from the image...

Works fine if used with TV

A less than moving motion camera experience


The Samsung MX10 camcorder may look like a cute little DV cam, with its sleek styling, 16:9 display, and an industry standard SD memory card slot, you might think this little beauty were a great ?entry level? way into digital video. Well, sadly, this ...

Passible quality video, Vista compatible

Proprietary video format, not Mac compatible, paltry quality video

Samsung SC-MX10 SD/SDHC/MMC Camcorder


Overall a great little camera with a multitude of functions. A very good optical zoom range. Battery lasts two hours and lets you know how many minutes left. Price is very reasonable and quality of videos very good. Think about getting the SC-MX10A or...

Small and easy to use. Menu and zoom are very functional. Great range on zoom. Flash memory makes an excellent recording medium. 2.7 screen easy to read. Low cost and high value

Videos not great at very low light (rated at 3 lux). If you need very low light recording, you might think about another camera. Editing software is average
