I have changed many camcorders before as a certain feature is missing or something new is out which catches my eye. I bought this camcorder as it was reviewed highly in a photo magazine and now I can say for myself that is really a good camcorder. The battery life is really good as well as audio and video quality. It is very easy to connect to your TV or PC and suuports a wide range of popular memory cards.
You can take quality pictures on it as well using its digital camera feature. Its very slick and small and you can take it anywhere and fits perfectly in the handbag as ladies dont' like the bulky stuff. The price is descent as well with what your getting. There isn't many disadvantages with this camcorder apart from recording still images which I had on previous models and night recording but is nothing essential. I would recommend this to anyone!
The VP-MX20 comes with H.264 technology, which enhances its record times significantly. In the "fine" mode, Samsung's VP-MX20 camcorder can record up to 6 hours using a card. Samsung's H.264 technology also more than doubles the compression ratio so that it takes less time to send video files via email or upload them onto the internet. The VP-MX20 also features a unique shooting mode that allows users to select a resolution and format that's ideal for uploading contents to YouTube or multi-media devices. By selecting the Web and Mobile mode, the camcorder's resolution is automatically adjusted to 640 x 480 and optimized for use on web sites. Unlike other camcorders, users can easily import the video and play it on the MP3 players and PMPs supporting H.264 - without having to transcode the files.
