PRODUCT SPECIFICATIONS & FEATURES
Let's take a look at what is included with this HD camcorder. Samsung is pretty hit and miss with their included hardware and sometimes some components are overlooked.
First out is your usual user's manual along with the warranty and helpline registration paperwork. But also included is a full version of DVD Suite from Cyberlink. This essentially allows you to burn your solid state recorded content onto a DVD for archiving or viewing.
I do have to say, the hardware kit is pretty complete with some added additions that even I thought would not be included.
What comes included is:
- Docking Cradle
- USB Data Cable
- Soft Camera Case
- Power Adapter
- Remote Control w/ Batteries
- Standard Analog Video Patch Cable
- HD Component Patch Cables
- Lithium-Ion Battery (850mAh)
As you see, there is everything you need to enjoy your camera right out of the box. The one thing I wish was included seeing this was an HD camcorder was a HDMI cable. Seeing it has a direct HDMI connection capability, it should be included to allow most users to connect directly to their new TV with one simple connection.
And at last you have your new camcorder. As you can see in the photo that they still use the glossy piano finish which shows every fingerprint, hair and spec of dust. But over all the camcorder is quite small for a full HD camcorder. But the size, you would think it was a small cheap throw away type of camcorder you take on hiking trips, but other than the size, this camcorder is a lot more powerful than its dimensions. You will see why in the upcoming pages.
