    Does anyone have any information or experience with the Samsung SC-
    MX20 camcorder that just came out. It is designed to be targeted to
    the You Tube user, and easy to upload videos to U-tube.

    A previous CNET review by Lori Grunin, Cnet editor, did not like the
    esarler model, the Samsung MX-10, because it did not perform well
    undoors under low light confditions.

    I would like your opinion on whether the newer version MX-20 solves
    the low light problem of the MX-10? And also what has been your
    experience with this new camera in general, and what other competitive
    cameras of this type in this class and price range might be
    recommended instead.

    Financial disclosure note: I have no financial relationship with any
    camera companies and do not sell cameras.

    Thanks in advance for your input.

    Samsung SC-MX20 YouTube-friendly Flash Camcorder July 10th, 2008
    July 9, 2008 – Today, Samsung Electronics America, Inc. unveiled the
    SC-MX20, the successor to the company’s popular SC-MX10 compact
    digital camcorder. The ideal camcorder for the exploding generation
    of consumers uploading video content to the Internet, the SC-MX20
    features a customized recording mode optimized for YouTube™ or multi-
    media devices, further simplifying the way users integrate the
    camcorder into their digital lifestyles.

  2. Most camcorders costing several times that price suffer from poor
    performance under low light conditions. If you find a very-low
    price camera that DOES have good low-light performance, it is
    likely an inadvertent error on the part of the manufacturer, and
    you can be sure they will correct the "problem" in short order. :-/

    Manufacturers (notably Sony) have actually been known to
    "dumb-down" certain models to force customers to the higher-
    price professional equipment lines.
