Over the years, I have watched camcorders evolve from a huge expensive awkward machine into this sleek model. It can be operated using one hand if you need it. When recording something in a crowd, lift the camcorder up high, move the screen so you can see what you are recording, and go. You don't have to be 9 feet tall to get a good picture. I love this machine!
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.
I got this camcorder this morning, and am already recording, and sending clips much easier than with my other camcorder, which by the way, cost almost 4 times as much as this one. The videos are crystal clear as are the photos. The settings are really easy to adjust. I love this camcorder already. I will probably use my much more expensive camcorder much less now. Thanks for making a great product. The only drawback that I can see is the sound could be just a tad louder. I am sold on Samsung!
