I had a good scan, It's a brand new model so nothing out there yet, although maybe someone can find a preview or something?

Fair point:thumbsup:

You have peace of mind with QVC - if you don't like it when you receive it you can send it back for a refund - no problem
It does seem to be a good deal
\However it doesn't do HD quality does it?

That is SHOCKING ...The picture you have is actually for the VP-HMX20C which if you search you'll find is about £350 ..... the model described looks like below, not so good now ..this model is NOT Hi-Def and the reviews I've found are really bad (Reviewed by T3 Magazine)...AVOID....voted COLD

A dead givaway other than the fact the one they've pictured is black is the fact the sticker on the front shows H.264, this is an advanced High Definition Codec which the VP-MX20 couldn't even think about handling...

However, If QVC have screwed up and send you the VP-HMX20C (the one they've pictured) then you've got a real bargain !

http://www.redentor.co.uk/images/VP-MX20.jpg

Couldn't find any reviews of this on the web.
Here's a link to Samsung's press release which has a bit more info.
along with details of the High-Def model (which is NOT the one QVC are selling)
samsung.com/hk_…258

It seems it DOES do H.264 - which I think is just a way of compressing the data.

There is an earlier model (VP-MX10) sold on Amazon (which Empire Direct sold
for few hours at £100!!) but the two user comments rate it as poor.

Personally I'm interested because it does 'interval recording' and is supposed
to power on in less than a second.

Zootaga - do you have a link for the T3 review please?
I could only find a 'coming soon' article on their web-site.

Is this what you're lookin for?

Have samsung got it wrong as well as qvc, they're both stating H264 and the camera in the pic looks the same :?

the one on TV black! they are also bringing this camera out in red, blue and silver; they're not going to send you the HMX20C, this is a samsung UK deal and they are not going to send you a £350+ camera!! Yes, this handles 720x576i - otherwise why would they quote it on the website!!

you are talking complete codswhallop, and have no evidence to back up your wild claims! this is brand new, no reviews as yet, so don't vote cold, it's a very good price esp with SD, this is £179 on amazon and £154.99 (without memory card) on play.com

this camera is for people who like to upload to youtube, H.264 looks pretty good on youtube and if at a bitrate over 1024kbs will dislay in high quality mode

On the Samsung site, it says this codec is only used for a higher compression ratio, but NOT HD

My Casio camera records video in H.264 and its not Hi-Def, i think you have your facts muddled up.

apple.com/qui…64/

It looks the same as the camcorder they showed on the QVC TSV show to me, ie its black with the stickers as the first posts pic - think im getting one anyway, as i was gonna get an aiptek & i think this is a better buy for not alot more!

gone for one ...............cheers AugQX :thumbsup:

Same here, just ordered one too!

Wonder if it has a thread in the base for atatching to tripod? Couldnt find out, really hope so?

Where did you read it does H.264? H.264 is a high defination coded based on VC1 (Blu-ray) it starts rendeering at 720p which this camera does not scale to.....only goes to 576i

yes for high def it would (I think) have to be H.264 SP at 1280x720i minimum

Anyone going for this, don't forget 5% Quidco!

WOW! been looking for a good deal on a video cam for ages! Best iv seen in a while! thanks!

Yes its gone back up to £180

I only got mine today so its hard to advise if its worth the £180, but so far im quite impressed with it & its easy to use, its ready to shoot almost immediately!

If i have to be honest I would go for the Hi definition one, its basicly the same but with a higher resolution, thats the one i would have got had it been available, not even sure if its available in the uk yet?

here is a link for the hi-def one: uk.youtube.com/wat…R=1

Anyone who has purchased this & might be looking for spare battery packs you can get them here cheap:
