Samsung SMX-C10GP


When folded closed the Samsung SMX-C10GP camcorder is extremely small, it's just 5.6 cm height, 11.4 cm long and less than 4cm wide! This makes this camcorder perfect for use on the go, it's certainly small and light enough to carry around with you....

Samsung SMX-C10


The Samsung SMX-C10 is a tiny, exotic looking camcorder whose size belies its substantial functionality. It's a direct competitor to pocket video cameras, many of which now record in HD. This unit's advantage lies in its superior flexibility and the...

The design on the Samsung SMX-C10 is unique to many other camcorders on the market

Memory card size


I found a 16gb card didn't work with this camcorder so I dropped down to an 8gb which helped no end. It still gives you over 4 hours recording time which is more than enough as the battery lasts 160 mins
