Samsung SC-HMX10
Price: $600 and up
Format: Flash card and internal
Resolution: 720 lines
Zoom: 10x
Screen: 2.7-inch-wide LCD
              (no eyepiece)
Weight: 0.7 lbs without battery

Ease of use: Easy to operate, with touchscreen interface. But the unit kept forcing us to reformat, so we lost video. Samsung says it was an anomaly.

Video quality: Samsung's only HD offering is just 720 lines - and can't compete with our top performers. Leak complained of "lots of grain." Images were not as sharp.

The big picture: Even if we could get past the picture quality, the issues with reformatting were impossible to ignore. Samsung does have a 1,080 model coming in early summer.

Grade: D
