Pros:

  • The Samsung HMX-QF20 is a small, lightweight, shoot-and-share camcorder with a 20x optical zoom and built-in Wi-Fi for backups and direct uploads to YouTube, Facebook, and Picasa.
  • Wireless sharing and backup, Lots of builtin features and adjustments, Easytonavigate UI, Manual focus is a nice feature

Cons:

  • The QF20's video isn't really HD-quality and it's only good for viewing at small sizes. HD recordings cannot be uploaded wirelessly and Wi-Fi back up is Windows only.
  • Still image quality is poor, Surprisingly feels too small, Wireless sharing is clunky, LCD can't handle direct sun, Hardtocontrol zoom

Poor low light performance and the terrible touchscreen interface really drag the QF20 down. As expected, the Samsung HMX-QF20's video performance is not the camcorder's strong suit. Low light images were barely usable, with the camcorder...

The Samsung HMX-QF20, despite its shortcomings, is quite the nice little camcorder. I like the compact size, as well as the “switch grip” feature. You can even shoot vertical HD videos, if you ever decide that’s something you want to...

International Review By lydogbillede.dk on 50

Samsung HMX-QF20 er et minimalt kamera på mange måder. Det præsterer rimelige billeder i godt lys, men dårligere end de øvrige kameraer i testen. Ved 5 lux bliver billederne knap nok synlige. Wi-Fi-muligheden kan dog være...
