Was looking for an HD digital camcorder, was going to go for the kodak zi8, but stumbled across this camera (credit to Xpert for this deal http://www.hotukdeals.com/deal/708252/samsung-wb500-digital-camera-with-h)

Think it's cheapest around at the moment, offer expires tomorrow. Still on the fence to go for this or a kodak zi8!

Price is £129.90 + £7.30 delivery

Think this £7 referral thing might still work too: http://www.pixmania.co.uk/uk/uk/s_action/Parrainage/index.html?srcid=349

The one in your link is the WB500, the one in this deal is the WB550 main difference HDMI output and 12MP instead of 10MP. I have the WB500 and is great.

I have the WB550 that I got for my birthday last year. At that point I managed to find a very good deal for £199... I must say it is an amazing camera! I have had some great shots and in very high detail! HDMI out is great, as is the HD filming. The only annoying thing is that the video picks up the sound of the zoom when your filming. But it does have a pause/start function which allows you to pause, zoom in and then start recording again....
I'm not sure how much difference there is between the 12mp and the 10mp but either way the camera is a bargain at this price!

Another feature that I like about the camera is that you can take a picture from a Video I think this is amazing, with previous digital cameras I could not take videos of my kids an pictures at the same time and whilst changing mode the moment is gone, missing that moment. With this you just record the video and then take a picture at the point that you want :thumbsup:

I have this camera and I have to say that video recording is AMAZING.

I used to carry a digital camera for still photos and another one for video recording - now I only carry the Samsung WB550.

Here are some videos that I recorded using this camera:

Original recording is much better than youtube of course. Sound was recorded separately as the camera's mic wouldn't capture the full breadth of the sound.

One little complaint though, quality of still-photos is not that great out-of-the-box but if you play with different modes you can get perfect shots.

Heat and rep added - worth every penny at this price.

Cheers! Rep returned; thanks for sharing . Video quality looks great; I was afraid the camera wouldn't be able to maintain a smooth framerate due to it not being a dedicated camcorder.:oops:

Ended up going for this model rather than the Kodak Zi8/Flip Ultra HD alternatives. I have to ask; how is the mic in this camera? Can't find much information online about it, or from youtube videos. I'd be using it to record some short clips of concerts, and was wondering if it would be up to task to produce non-muddy sound exposed at high volumes. Obviously I'm not expecting the world from a built in camera, but it would be nice if it's listenable.

Can anyone recommend a decent case for this
