10 Reasons Against

Expert Reviews Are Poor

Camcorder expert review website Expert Reviews scored this video camera 40 out of 100. It seems that experts really don't rate this Samsung camcorder very highly.

Not Full HD

The HMX-H104 is not Full HD, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other video cameras that have been available for around the same time as the HMX-H104 are also not Full HD.

If you are looking for a video camera that is Full HD then you might also want to look at the PXW-FS7K, or the PMW-150 both from Sony or the Polaroid ID975HD which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have an Image Stabiliser

Most video cameras that have been on the market for more than two years do not have an image stabiliser. The HMX-H104 is no exception to this as it too does not have an image stabiliser.

Alternative video cameras which also have an image stabiliser that you might also want to consider include the Thinkware TW-X500, the JVC GY-HM150, or the Polaroid iD1880 which is also higher rated.

Does Not Have a Night Mode

Like most of the other video cameras that have been around for more than two years, the HMX-H104 does not have a night mode.

We compared this camcorder to all the other video cameras with a night mode and we think the F-500G, or the F-500 (£86.26) both from HP or the Transcend DrivePro 200 (£82.50) which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Keenly priced, but suffers compatibility issues with editing software and does little else to stand out...

Stylish, rounded body is easy to hold
Major functions and sockets are well placed
Good range of features for the money
Sensibly priced
Attractive design
No AVCHD
No real benefit in SSD
Average picture quality
Slow auto focus
SSD adds unnecessary price premium
