PRODUCT PICTORIAL & WALKTHROUGH (cont'd)



Moving around to the rear, you have your usual power, record and mode button along with Samsung's Easy-Q setup button for excellent default recording settings along with a LED mode indicator and DC power and external microphone connections at the bottom. Very easy to use and essentially childproof right out of the box.



Once the side display is opened, you will have some other options you can explore. On the display frame, you have an alternate record button, a zoom control and a button to allow you access to the menu. The one thing that fooled me for a bit was some sort of navigation pad to navigate through the menu options. One option is to use the remote which works perfect and the other is seen below.


 

 

 

 

 

 

 


The display itself is also a VERY handy 2.7 inch touchscreen. Everything is accessible in seconds with a press of a fingerprint. As you can see, it can be rather fun to explore through the hundreds of menu options. I personally will not be walking through the menu system seeing it is so vast and if anyone can setup a TV, you can setup this camera. The Easy-Q is the best option for most users seeing it wraps all the perfect quality and anti-vibration options under one button. Even with all the fiddling I have done to make things just right, they were all essentially the same as what this one button offers.



Through a small door you will see the connections for USB, video and the handy HDMI connections. If something goes wrong, you also have a master reset that can be used if something goes wrong. Above the connection panel is the internal speaker and control buttons for the LCD display brightness boost and the display of recording information on screen. Again, Samsung has kept everything very simple so you will not need a tech degree just to record some video.



The large widescreen display is exceptionally bright, clear and sharp. Even from an arm's length away, the display can still easily be easily read. As seen in this picture, you will be able to keep track of battery and recording time info, quality settings, options enabled and the touchscreen options to access the menu system.
