Sharing your memories couldn't be easier. Simply connect the camcorder to any PC, select the files you want to share, press the external one touch upload button, and put your world on the web for the rest of the world to see.

Superior Video Compression (H.264)
With the new H.264 video CODEC, advances in compression technology have resulted in virtually loss-less compression. That means what you see is what you get. But your camcorder takes less memory to keep it! So you get to record more hours of video while using less memory. With the C20 you can capture up to 6 hours and 20 minutes of high quality video footage on a 16GB SD card.

Time Lapse Recording
By capturing frames at every time interval which users can set, and then putting them in sequential order, the time-lapse recording function allows you to record the beauty of an entire sunset in minutes or seconds. It is an effective way to enjoy time-varying looks of objects or scenes in a long time span.

We have two of these cameras at college and have found them to be ideal for staff who are a bit 'techno-phobic' when it comes to av kit. The file format isn't a worry as we re-encode the files using the free 'MGEG Streamclip' software on the web before editing in iMovie. The battery lasts for ages and an 8GB SDHC card lasts plenty long enough. Feedback from staff has been 100% positive and no-one has broken one yet. Happy days! Recommended.

If you want a simple, small camcorder this is ideal. You have two ways to charge it...by mains adaptor or USB. It comes with a CD to load the software onto your PC. I was disappointed that Amazon could not supply it so bought from a third party seller...Todo!Todo!. BIG mistake!! It was a Samsung refurbished item...the original seal was broken and the camcorder had quite obviously been out of the very tatty box...the Samsung label had been rubbed off and the sellers label stuck over it. It cost me nearly £8 to return it by a trackable method which they refused to refund.
They are now reselling it as new....the seller is TODO!TODO!...don't buy from them!!

Great little camcorder that slots into the gap between easily obtained, but somewhat low quality, mobile phone footage and high quality footage from a top notch camcorder, but with all the size and equipment and expense issues that come with such items.

Size is the beauty of this camcorder. It folds into a neat little egg shaped ball which will easily fit in a pocket or handbag, and even with the 2.7" lcd folded out it snuggles into the palm of your hand without the need to rest your arm every two minutes. I carry mine in a pocket of the bag I use for DSLR still camera which is easily three times the size!.

Results are just as good as many larger rivals in my opinion, OK it's not broadcast quality, but footage seems just as vivid and defined as many units twice the size. Functionality is more than sufficient for everyday use, and it has all the usual offerings for shooting modes, wind noise reduction, image stabilisation etc.

The 10x optical zoom is adequate, although somewhat less impressive than many rivals (undoubtedly a trade off due to its compact size) and as with most "memory only" camcorders in this price range it has no viewfinder, so you have to use the LCD screen (sometimes not ideal on a bright sunny day).

Generally this is a great little device, which if you shop around you can pick up for a little over £100 (at the time of writing)... and at that price it's rude not to get one.

I was disappointed with this Camcorder because it was faulty - it switched off in the middle of recording and it was generally unresponsive. However I think it was untypical; it seemed to be exactly what I was looking for and was small and beautiful to hold.It fitted easily into my handbag but this particular camcorder wouldn't switch on reliably so of course I had to send it back.I wouldn't want this review to put people off buying it-I think I was unlucky.

Bought this item a month ago, as I needed to record my husbands rugby games. I'm impressed with the quality and the ease to download the clips. The end quality is somewhat the same as the video function on my camera and the picture quality isnt great when the sun goes down. But it does the job and the price wont break the bank.
