Compare and Contrast

The Samsung HMX-F80 is better than most things. And we're going to prove it.

The Samsung HMX-F80 packs a powerful, affordable HD camcorder into a sleek body that weighs a mere 0.48 pounds. Still not sold? Well, let's do a few side-by-side comparisons - when stacked up against most other things, the Samsung HMX-F80 blows the competition out of the water.

Bose SoundDock Series II
Weight 5.2 lbs
HD Capabilities: No

Sure, you'll get great sound, but the Bose SoundDock is NOT a camera, so your HD capabilities are going to be severely limited. And at 5.2 pounds, there's no question this sucker's going to be weighing you down. The Samsung HMX-F80 is the clear winner here.

Standard Field Mouse
Weight: 0.04 lbs
HD Capabilities: No

It's true that a mouse weighs a bit less, but notice the COMPLETE lack of HD recording abilities. Factoring in the fact that mice are dirty and often carry disease, you're going to be better off with the Samsung HMX-F80.

The Capacity to Love
Weight: n/a
HD Capabilities: No

The human ability to love doesn't weigh anything, per se, which initially may make it appear to be a good choice. But what you gotta remember is that it has absolutely NO HD capabilities. Coupled with the fact that all things you ever love will one day turn to ash, you're safer with the Samsung HMX-F80.
