Video Performance* (6.75)*
The Samsung SC-HMX10C is equipped with a single CMOS sensor measuring 1/4.5 inches. The gross pixel count is 1,610,000. The specs sheet states the effective pixel count as 1,560,000, but does not state if this is with the electronic image stabilization on or off.
For general indoor shooting, the camcorder is pretty good. Under the right conditions, this version of H.264 does a better job of hiding its compression artifacts than certain AVCHD camcorders.
