4.0 out of 5 stars Review for Samsung C19 Camcorder, 29 July 2011
This review is from: Samsung C19 Digital Mini Camcorder - Red (Electronics)
As these Samsung Camcorders can be purchased for as little as £[] they have to be a bargain, and if you are realistic in your expectations then you shouldn't be disappointed.

The good:-
Very small and compact so it is easy to carry in a pocket.
Very simple to use once you get used to the angled lens.
Good battery life.
For a SD camcorder pretty good picture quality when viewed on a 40 inch Samsung LCD TV
Has the facility to create time lapse videos which I personally like.
Has a reasonable x10 zoom.
You can edit your video footage without a PC, ie divide and combine individual files.

The not so good:-
There is no lens cap which means the lens is very exposed to damage. Also, as the camcorder is so small it is easy to touch the lens with a finger tip.
With out a tripod it is difficult to hold the camcorder steadily enough to make full use of the x10 zoom.
Also, depending on the background if you zoom in too quickly the auto focus struggles to keep up.
Similarly if you pan to quickly the picture can blur.
