Product Description

Product Description

Offering full-HD resolution, the Samsung HMX-E10 is highlighted by a versatile, 270-degree swiveling lens that enhances consumers’ creativity and allows them to add their own unique views to their video by being able to record from just about any angle. The HMX-E10’s swiveling lens also brings a new sense of fun to recording video, and gives consumers the ability to step out from behind the camcorder and put themselves in the frame with their friends and family.

From the Manufacturer

An adjustable angle for every moment

Samsung introduces a revolutionary new way to capture memories—the E10 camcorder. It features a 270° Swivel Lens built into the top of the camera that rotates 270° so you can enjoy more flexibility and achieve the perfect angle for everything you shoot. Whether it’s an up-close shot on a sharp angle or filming yourself in the action, the swivel lens’ ability to rotate—normal, low, and high—gives you a creative edge.

The Samsung E10 camcorder lets you keep an eye on what you’re shooting with its bright and clear LCD touch screen. Ready to make your memories even more memorable?

It features a handy USB arm built into the bottom of the camcorder so you can easily transfer videos to your notebook and share them with friends and family.
Plug & Play Portability

To give you the freedom to live a more mobile life, the Samsung E10 comes with its PC software built-in. When it is connected to built in USB, intelli-studio 2.0 automatically runs, so you can view, edit, manage, and upload from anywhere.

I was contemplating between HD camcorders, iPod Touch 4th Gen, Digital Cameras with video recording and this and am happy I chose the Samsung HMX-E10 to complement my Canon Digital Rebel XTi and SX210 digital cameras for great 1080p image stabilized video with easy to use UI and good design on the USB and mini-HDMI-ports.

Video quality is great but not flawless as there's a tiny lag on videos with fast full frame movement but it's not as bad as with the Flip cams. The touch screen is great but isn't sensitive enough for my quick button presses - this is really evident on using the start/stop button for the video which require around 800ms button press.

The screen doesn't seem to scratch easy - I've had it in my pocket with keys and coins for days now and can't see a single scratch. The swivel lens is a good idea but doesn't get used that often - probably ideal for blogging type videos.

Overall - very happy with the results. Have been using this to capture every move of our baby and share the videos via Picasaweb to grandparents overseas. The included intelli-studio sync software doesn't support Picasa out of the box but can be customized and has support for Flickr, facebook and Youtube uploads.

Very happy with the product - hopefully Samsung will refine the touch screen software for faster response. Very competitive and aggressively priced pocket camcorder.

I've tried several pocket HD camcorders over the past year or so: Creative Vado (3rd Gen), Kodak Zi8 and the Panasonic TA-1. I recently got my hands on the Samsung HMX E-10, however, and I think I've found a keeper. I'll just get right to the point and break down what I think about it:

The Good:

** Solid low-light performance: I'm no video expert, so I can't give you a bunch of jargon. All I can say is that, with my other pocket cameras, I could barely make out some of the stuff that I recorded at night. With this one, however, everything's pretty clear. Ironically, the TA-1 has an actual light on it, but in my opinion, the E-10 blew it out of the water in a side-by-side test I did. That said, don't sleep on this little guy.

** It's gorgeous: I typically don't care much about looks, but this camera is pretty sexy (even better in person). It looks more like the latest smartphone than a video camera. I think kids especially will love the design of this camera.

** Fairly noise-free audio: Not an audio expert either when it comes to these things, but I haven't heard anything funky yet (unlike my Vado). Indoors, it sounds good. Outdoors, it picked up quite a bit of wind noise during my test; but it was a pretty windy day, so I won't be too harsh.

** Good image stabilization: This was huge for me. My Zi8 makes me look like I have a nervous condition. The E-10 is pretty stable though. It's not perfect, but this is a camera that I'd feel fairly confident shooting with while I'm walking.

** Swivel lens: This really won me over. I was "meh" about it when I purchased the camera, but you can do some pretty neat stuff with it.

This little video cam is great. Best thing about it - IT WORKS GREAT ON OUR MAC! We don't quite understand some of the negative reviews out there - can't imagine what some people expect?? The advertising and features seem to skip over MAC compatible, but it works just fine on MAC. Now you don't get the "PC" software features, but don't need them. We use an iMac G5 with 1.8 Ghz PowerPC running Leopard 10.5.8 . The E10 Camcorder plugs right into a USB on back of our Mac. Turn the camcorder power on. A desktop icon (Folder) appears with a user manual to easily download, and folders containing your videos and snapshots also appear. The Mac automatically pulls up iPhoto and importing snapshots is simple. You can close iPhoto if you're only working with videos.
You can select a video and it opens Quicktime to play it - but the quality isn't perfect. HOWEVER, you can open iMovie and import the videos, it does take about 4 to 5 minutes for each minute of video to import into iMovie, but that's not a big deal because when you view your videos on iMovie they are PERFECT! IMovie can splice, edit, cut, your videos, etc. Also, once on iMovie you can email a video. Additionally, there's no problem uploading a video to YouTube, either directly from the CamCorder folder, or you can copy videos from the Camcorder folder to your desktop. (We created a new folder to copy videos into) - then upload them to YouTube, or import to iMovie.

The quality of videos and snapshots are nice. We have no problem taking good videos and snapshots in moderately low light either. This is a VERY SIMPLE camcorder to operate!

Product seems easy to use, uploading files to computer is a snap with USB, also charging. Screen when shooting is small, no opportunity to zoom. Get a large SD card to have memory to shoot longer. The HD resolution is great and you can't beat the price. So slim, easily fits in your pocket. Everyone thinks it's a cellphone.
