Samsung SMX-C10 Touch of Color Camcorder

The Samsung SMX-C10 Touch of Color Camcorder with 10x Optical Zoom (Red) is ideal for those on the go, is light as a feather and tiny. It fits comfortably in the hand or easy to slip into a pocket. The angled lens takes a little getting used to, but really saves on wrist lock as it’s easy to pan and scan at a comfortable angle. Out of the box the battery is very fast to charge, only taking around 30 minutes for first charge.

The zoom is fantastic, even with recording action shots the focus is pretty hard to mess up. and the time delay recording and animated thumbnails are really fun to play with.


The playback is great, I love that you can flip the screen around and fold it back in during watching, with an convenient rewind button right next to it. All the buttons are easy to access, not that there are too many to get confused with.

The SMX-C10 does not feature internal memory and you will need to purchase SD/SDHC media when you get the camcorder. It does though offer substantial battery life, providing more than two hours and forty minutes of record time on a single charge which is more than enough for most situations.

The one-touch “upload” button, available directly on the SMX-C10, provides the user a direct connection to YouTube, so reduces the number of steps needed to upload footage. In addition, the camcorder also allows basic on-camera editing, including the ability to merge and split video files.

One downside is that it has no still photo capability which is a little disappointing.

All in all – for under $150 with the features it has you will be hard pressed to find a sleeker and better performing camcorder than the Samsung SMX-C10 Touch of Color Camcorder with 10x Optical Zoom (Red).
