Samsung SC-MX20 Camcorder Review

Earlier this year, Samsung blew us away with the surprisingly strong performance of their high definition SC-HMX20. Over the years, we had grown accustomed to mediocre video from the Samsung line and the HMX20 gave us reason to pause—even reason to recommend a Samsung camcorder. Unfortunately, the surprising improvements we saw in the HMX20 didn\'t trickle down to the latest standard definition camcorder: the Samsung SC-MX20 (MSRP $229.00).

Still Features* (0.0)*

Despite some misleading specs on the Samsung website, there is no dedicated still photography on the SC-MX20. There is no still camera mode, nor a still capture button. This is actually an odd omission, since comparable camcorders from all the other major manufacturers include a dedicated still photo mode.

The camcorder does have an Interval Recording feature, which will take a still photograph at specified intervals and record the series of stills as a single movie file. (See Other Features.)
