Perfect for what I (and my son) was looking for...
Dec 21, 2008
I was offered a Samsung SC-HMX20C 8GB High Definition Camcorder with 10x Optical Zoom via the Amazon Vine program for review, and it had some intriguing possibilities. Easy-to-understand menu structure, and great video quality. I'm far from a vid expert, so I won't be able to intelligently detail pros and cons that someone who shoots professionally. But the design lends itself to my son's expectations perfectly...
He rides a fixed gear bike and has competed in a number of alleycat competitions. He's also quite adept at trick riding, and has often wanted to do some YouTube videos. The Samsung ergonomic design is perfect for shooting those types of clips. The tubular shape fits perfectly in the palm of the hand for excellent angle control. It can also be held with the hand facing downward to get ground-angle shots with no strain. The view screen swivels for easy viewing as he's shooting under different conditions. And best of all, the zoom controls are located perfectly for one-handed fingertip control. All in all, he's extremely excited about the camera and the results he can get for shooting his way to YouTube fame.
I'm very happy with the camera for what I had in mind, and I'm sure we'll get plenty of use from it over time... or until he runs over it... whichever comes first.
