I wouldn't bother with this camera if you're thinking of getting one.
The quality is dire and to illustrate it I have uploaded two images here so you can see how bad it really is.
I have circled the blue stripe that dogs the left hand of the image and the vertical lines that really get on your nerves. They are like very transparent vertical blinds.
This zoomed image my be better for you:
Please tell me if you think I'm over reacting here, but when I buy a video camera I expect a certain level of quality. I've seen better videos taken from a still digital camera that take Mpeg movies.
The scene was well lit and the camera was set to the correct settings unyet you get a terrible image. When we shot the same scene with my mates camera, a JVC, it was crystal clear.
I returned my camera to Argos and they sent it for repair. It came back exactly the same and they then gave me a replacement (as a good will gesture they say. No, within the law I say under the Sales of Goods Act 1979)
The replacement was exactly the same and at this point they had contacted Samsung who say they know of no known faults with this system. This means now that Argos won't budge and all they will do is send it off for repair - AGAIN!
I haven't finished with them yet... but I would strongly advise against this camera, especially if you want to take a half reasonable video.
