Samsung HMX-U20


$250.00 Released May, 2010

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Photo quality is excellent, comparable to higher quality 10 MP digital cameras. The Smart Auto feature actually does a good job of picking the best settings for each situation. Included video/picture editing software allows for simple editing while on the go.

The Cons:Recorded audio is accompanied by a constant clicking noise. Video quality seems a little lacking on the 1080p setting. The smaller size makes it harder to keep steady while recording video.

The Samsung HMX-U20 is one of two 1080p HD pocket camcorders release in Spring 2010. The U20 builds from the U15 by incorporating an improved 3x optical zoom, as well as a more compact and portable design.
