'Video quality is good, but not great, and doesn't quite match the Canon; however, the Samsung is superbly usable and has excellent controls.'
'In automatic shooting mode even the fastest whip pans and flashing lights barely fox the focus and exposure, and even under artificial light – usually the bane of camcorders – the H200 captures great looking pictures backed up with a good loud audio pick up. '
'With an MSRP of only $400 this camera is perfect for home users and more than does the job.'
'The Samsung HMX-U20 isn't perfect, but it punches hard in one of the areas that matters: the video quality is above par for this type of device, with both autofocus and optical zoom a step above the normal fixed focus options. '
'Quality is great, at least outdoors in good light.'
'Smart Auto essentially enables low light mode in poor illumination, although a macro mode will also appear when appropriate.'
'Because of the lens placement, you don't have the hold the camcorder up to your face as you do with traditional camcorders, so there's less strain on your arm. '
'capacious SD/SDHC flash storage cards'
'As is usually the case nowadays, video can be edited on the camera and uploaded directly to YouTube -- perfect for capturing those embarrassing v-blogs before you sober up and your social filter kicks in.'
