★★★★

For what it of­fers – full high­def­i­ni­tion record­ing, 10x op­ti­cal and 20X dig­i­tal zoom, SD card mem­ory, one-but­ton op­er­a­tion and a 180g body – the HMX-Q10 is a mighty mini video cam­era. Sam­sung has de­signed this cam­era as a am­bidex­trous unit, mak­ing the HMX-Q10 easy to use for

south­paws, while en­sur­ing the con­trols are just as in­tu­itive for righthanders. While its spec isn’t up to the same level as the Canon or Sony, nei­ther is the price. It out­per­forms both the more ex­pen­sive brands on stills, de­liv­er­ing 4.9-megapixel shots. It has drag-and-scroll func­tions from

smart­phones, op­ti­cal im­age sta­bil­i­sa­tion and it can be recharged from any USB port. The au­dio isn’t a strength, but for fam­ily videos this

of­fers easy op­er­a­tion and good func­tion­al­ity for a rea­son­able price.
