52x Optical Zoom for Close or Far-Away Shots

With Samsung's F90 camcorder, you can get incredibly close to the action from far away thanks to its powerful 52x optical zoom lens.

HD Video Recording

The F90 can be used to shoot 1280x720p HD video at 30 frames per second, resulting in videos with resolution that is two and a half times better than what typical standard-definition camcorders can produce.

One-Touch Sharing Button to Upload Videos

This camcorder has been designed to make it quicker and easier for you to share videos with your friends and family members. Simply connect the camcorder to your computer's USB port and press the One-Touch Sharing Button to upload your videos to YouTube or social networks.

F1.8 Lens for Clear Videos in Low Light

A wide F1.8 aperture lens allows you to use the F90 camcorder to shoot sharp, high-quality video even in low-light environments.

CMOS Sensor for Rich, Natural Colors

The F90 features a CMOS sensor that filters light into separate red, green, and blue elements for clear images without vertical smears. The result is color reproduction that is richer, deeper, and more natural-looking than what typical CCD sensors can deliver.

2.7-Inch LCD Display with Wide Viewing Angle

Samsung's F90 camcorder is equipped with a 2.7-inch LCD display with a wide viewing angle that allows you to see everything in the shot--even when you're standing to the side and looking at it from an angle.

Bookmark Your Favorite Moments

With the F90 camcorder's My Clip feature, you can tag any scene in your video and then quickly play it without rewinding or fast-forwarding.

The pause button lets you stop recording and pick up where you left off without having to create a new video file. View larger.

Add Background Music to Your Video Footage

Thanks to the My Music feature in this camcorder, you can select one of four preloaded classical music pieces as background music for your video, or you can import songs from the digital music library on your computer. In addition, if there's talking in your video, Samsung's Smart BGM II function automatically turns down the background music so it won't drown out the speech.

Pause While Shooting Long Videos

Using this camcorder's pause function, you can halt the recording of a long video--say, for halftime of a basketball game or an intermission--and then pick up right where you left off without having to create a new video file.

Samsung HMX-F90BN Camcorder Product Shot

The 2.7-inch LCD display articulates and has a wide viewing angle so you can always see what you're shooting. View larger.

Condense Hours into Minutes with Time Lapse

The Time Lapse feature allows you to take still frames at preset intervals and then put them in sequential order. This creates a video file that condenses hours of recording--say, of a sunset or a sunrise--into just minutes of viewing.

HDMI Output for Connecting Directly to an HDTV

The F90 has an HDMI output that lets you connect it directly to an HDTV and play back the videos you took in high definition.

Product Information

The F90 measures 2.22 by 2.21 by 4.6 inches (H x W x D) and weighs 0.48 pound. It can be recharged by connecting it to a USB port.

What's in the Box

Samsung F90 camcorder, battery pack, hand grip, instruction book, and pocket guide.

===== Addendum: November 22, 2015

I recommend that you BEWARE of ridiculously high prices currently being offered by a few 'price-gougers' as of this date. If you're planning to spend $250.00 or more, there are many more current and more capable (and unfortunately more complicated to use) models from which to choose (this simple F90 model has probably been discontinued). It certainly isn't worth more than about $150.00 as a brand-new left-over model. On May 6, 2014, when it was still in production, I paid $129.95 to Amazon for it and that was NOT a special deal-of-the-day. It was their regular price. Please keep that in mind when considering purchasing this camcorder. I do hope that the price will be lowered to a reasonable level during this holiday season. The rest of this review is as I originally wrote it and I should mention that I remain completely satisfied with this camcorder.

=====

I am very pleased with my new Samsung F90 Black Camcorder with 2.7" LCD Screen and HD Video Recording.

I did not want a camcorder capable of producing the next STAR WARS movie. I just wanted an ordinary easy-to-use camcorder strictly for home video.

After a great deal of investigation, I chose this one - and I'm glad I did. It's inexpensive, very easy to use, and does exactly what I want from a camcorder.

I have filmed scenes from our latest vacation including scenes of the convention we attended as well as some museums we visited and I have taken videos of our granddaughter (who never seems to sit still!).

All of my videos so far have come out perfectly, even those taken under low-light.

I just finished filming three soccer games with this camera. I installed a 32 GB card in the camera which will provide for about 500 minutes of HD recording. The battery itself was less than half used after each soccer game. The duration of recording for each game was approximately 80 minutes.

After the file size reaches approximately 1.29 GB, the video camera closes out the file and starts a new segment. The camera is very easy to use, and did well when the sun was at my back, in my eyes, and it did even better at night when the field was lit up by lights.

If you want an inexpensive video camera that gives high quality video, you should like this one.

This is a good camcorder for the price. i needed it to do do short youtube videos. The only probably is you will not be able to use at night or after sunset. There is no flash or backlight! This is a con for this would have gotten 5 stars. The HD video recording is awesome! There does'nt seem to be a way to even attach a flash to this camera. This means you need very great lighting when recording and only in sunlight or good inside lighting.

The product description on this item doesn't really tell you all about it. There's a wealth of information that the company could make available which they haven't done. So I will do that instead.

My biggest pet peeve with this camera is that it picks up every tiny little noise out there. It seems to pick up the noise atoms make when they fly around. Any video intended for professional use will need to be post-processed to eliminate this noise. Turning it around is enough to produce a series of clicks, which can make the video feel amateurish.

The camcorder itself is capable of recording 1080p videos, though it's not recommended that you do so. Those videos are so high in quality that they slow down many computers- store bought computers with a lot of bloatware on them are particularly at risk. The flip screen contains an easy-to-use menu where you can change the settings of your camcorder to make it record 720p or 480p, as you prefer.

As is usually the case with most electronic devices, the factory settings are less than ideal. You will have to do some fiddling around to see what works best for you.

The built-in menu must be used in advance of recording. It's a bit more time consuming than it could be otherwise, so you stand the chance of messing up your recording if you try to change the settings in the middle of the video.

My camcorder started out with a date with January 1, 2013. This has to be manually changed in order for the folders on your computer to reflect the day you used the camcorder.

The device also takes pictures, but I have yet to find out if these pictures are of high quality, or whether they are just average. For the present, it appears that this device is not suited to professional photography.

Some of the negative reviews here made me think not to buy it. I ended up buying it locally and it's not as bad as some say. Much of the complaints are due to older firmware in the unit (November 2012). I just applied the latest (October 20, 2013) and the unit is working better. I posted a link below. If it is removed by Amazon, just search the Internet for 'samsung hmx-f90 download' and then click the Samsung page. There should be a support tab.

Overall a good buy. Here's the update link:
