I had owned an earlier model of a Samsung SD card camcorder and it did a fine job. I sold it to a friend and later regretted it, so recently decided to update and get the newest incarnation of this series. I'm sorry to be the bad guy, but I have to say I'm not pleased with this particular model. I'm simply going to make a "list" of the reasons I'm going to return this camcorder to the store:

1) A past model had a "swivel" strap area so you could pivot the camera body up or down for odd angle shooting - and this feature has been removed from this model.

2) The F50 does not save all of your menu settings. For instance, if you set the digital image stabilization feature and power the camcorder off, the feature will reset to "off" and you must go into the menu each time you power the camcorder on in order to use it. Some of your custom settings will be saved - others will not. VERY inconsistent and VERY inconvenient when you're trying to quickly capture a moment. That aside, the digital I.S. feature just barely works - once you're more than midway past the full zoom area, everything shakes very bad.

3) The F50 takes still shots and says they are 1.9 megapixels. They are far worse than even today's cheapest cell phone photos. My guess is that the F50 is really taking 640x480 stills and "interpolating" (blowing up) the photos to a larger size. Regardless, they are horrible in quality.

4) The top-mounted microphone catches even the tiniest puff of wind noise. Going into the menu and setting the wind feature only helps a small amount. The microphone should have been front-mounted.

I absolutely love this camcorder! I searched for weeks and watched the price on several camcorders. This year we will be celebrating many important milestones in my family and I don't want the opportunity to watch them over and over again. The only "problems" that I've experienced stem from my inability to keep the camera pointed at the action, instead of the ground/floor. The microphone (sadly) picks up all of my commentary as I tape my sons' baseball games. Makes for a good laugh when we watch the playback. The picture quality is crystal clear. Buttons are good size so I don't accidentally hit anything that I'm not intending to. Couldn't be any easier to hook up the camcorder to my tv and watch the videos on a big screen. Now I just need to find a tripod.

Need a tripod to produce good videos, otherwise it can be a little shaky :p

Given the purchase price, I certainly wasn't looking for a professional quality video/digital camcorder, but I did want one that I could use under most conditions, with results that I could consider good to very good and that is exactly what I got! I've not used it a great deal yet, but the more I do use it and learn about it, the more I like it. I felt that I had read enough positive reviews that the purchase was much more than a good gamble. I did get the free carry bag and a good price on a fair size SD Card, all at the same time. My overall feelings to date is this; SO FAR, SO GOOD, and again, for the price! Should anything strange or ugly pop up, I will certainly come back here and post that as well. Good luck and have fun with yours!

Never had a camcorder before. Worked fine right out of the box. Very easy to use. Bought it to try time lapse and I'm just getting started with that.

This video camera is a great camera for a kid. If you want super fancy camera this not the camera for you. The editing software works pretty well after you have had a little experience. I still have not figured out how to use the smart back round music. Over all a decent camera.
