2.0 out of 5 stars Not so hot......, June 2, 2013
By 
This review is from: Samsung F90 Black Camcorder with 2.7" LCD Screen and HD Video Recording (Discontinued by Manufacturer) (Electronics)
I bought this at my local Fry's Electronics store for $150. Added a 32G SDHC card which is good for just over 500 minutes video using HD. In the store it looked pretty good, focus seemed a bit slow but people often screw with floor models so no biggie right? Wrong. The picture itself is fair/good, the focus is terrible and sometimes requires zooming out, wait for focus, zoom back in. Very annoying.....and the auto stabilization does absolutely nothing. I watched a 6 minute clip I filmed and could hardly tell what I had filmed. Shaking like an alcoholic who'd been clean for a week. Overall, very disappointing. I gave it two stars because the design for housing was good, buttons are placed nicely and functions are pretty easy to access. However, it can look like a million bucks but without good video, it's not worth the money.

agreed! bought mine at Best Buy and the video quality is not sharp as you would expect from an "HD" camera. my husband's 1 1/2 year razor cell phone has better quality.

Well, if its recorded on HD and watched on anything other than an HD device then it will not look that great. I bet thats what happened.

The anti-shake/HDIS feature helps a lot with image stabilization. Zoom is slow for me, but I usually set my focal length before shooting anyway. I've always found videos that zoom in and out to be difficult to watch. I haven't noticed a problem with focus.

Same problems noted by Stang. I give it no more that 2 stars on a good day.

I ended up getting a Sony CX230 and it was 100 times better. Anyone who thinks this camera is good must not have ever used a decent one.
