Samsung VP-MX10


The VP-MX10 is a flash memory-based camcorder that records standard-definition video to SDHC memory cards. It can be viewed as a devolution of Samsung...

Low price tag, 35x optical zoom, nifty swivel handgrip

Bereft of features, cheap build quality, image quality failed to impress

The VP-MX10 offers an adequate (if somewhat average) performance for the asking price. If you’re after a bargain-basement camcorder that's tiny and easy to use, the VP-MX10 should fit the bill. Otherwise, go for something a little more expensive.

Shocking Quality


Not impressed at all. I suppose its my own fault for not reading reviews on it, before I bought it. It feels very plastic and the footage is rubbish. My digital on phone is better.
