I have several other products from Samsung. They all have been a good quality product for the price. This camcorder should serve me for years to come as the other products have.
After using the HMX f90 camcorder, and trying various recordings with it, I find it's over all performance is very, very good, with a couple exceptions that Samsung could have made better. First, no matter how you are using the anti shake feature, it does very little to keep your actual recording steady. That is actually an easy manufacturer adjustment Samsung could have made. The second thing that is a bit annoying is it records in low light ok, but again, they needed to make it more sensitive to offer better quality recording in lower light situations. ONE BIG PLUS, Samsung was smart enough to put a record/pause feature on the camcorder. That is a very, very nice feature that most people want in a camcorder, so nice work on that Samsung. The bad news is, it is the only model they make with this feature. I hope they have plans to offer a similar camcorder to this model with the improvements to the anti shake and low light recording issues, but certainly leave the record/pause feature on any new models. All in all, a very nice product that I would suggest to anyone in the market for a camcorder right now.
Before I made the final decision to buy this camcorder, I searched long and hard through a variety of online and televised reviews; most of the reviewers rated it good to excellent, although some had issues that were, in my opinion, minor or at least, correctable. For example, a few complained that the sound was low or difficult to hear during camcorder playback; that's true during the camcorder playback, to some extent, but everything is ok with the sound during playback on my TV or my computer - I just turn the volume up a little. Bottom line: I'm completely in love with this beautiful, workable, affordable camcorder because everything works well, and the photo and video functions are easy to understand and a breeze to operate - as advertised.
