Today, we review what is perhaps the most versatile, high-def camcorder on the market, the Samsung HMX20.

What You Need to Know

  • Weighs a little less than the tiny Panasonic camcorder we reviewed at about 11 ounces
  • Cylindrical shape might be a bit awkward to hold, but the rotating handle gives you a bunch of angles
  • No viewfinder, but the 2.7” LCD is a good size
  • All the icons are large enough to press, and they don't block your view of the image on the screen
  • The menus are intuitive
  • Samsung's touch screens are excellent, and it eliminates the need for a lot of buttons on the camcorder itself, which makes it easy for anyone to use
  • In well lit areas colors are saturated and detail is accurate
  • Even in low light, things look great
  • However, artifacting appears when the camera moves a lot
  • The image stabilization and auto focus need some work too
  • For home movies or film projects, it's an excellent option
  • Little things like being able to drag and drop Mpeg-4s, HDMI out from the dock and 8 gigs of built-in memory or SDHC storage really make this an all-around great camcorder
