The Samsung SMX-F33 is a low-end camcorder. It is similar to another product from Samsung, the SMX-C14, though the similarities are minimal, limited to only things such as the NTSC format. Compared to the SMX-C14, the SMX-F33 has more advanced features, including an 8th generation DSM chip (provides longer battery time and enhances digital imaging), and Natural Color Processing (makes colors closer to that of nature). The SMX-F33 features 3D noise reduction, which eliminates noise from the picture, while maintaining the original edge and pattern. It does this by passing groups of frames through filters. This results in great picture and video quality. The face detection of the SMX-F33 targets faces on the screen. It is able to always focus on faces on the screen, even if they're not in the center, enhancing the quality of pictures and video. It also features a full angle grip, which uses a swivel hand to provide increased freedom of movement. It lets the user use a larger variety of shooting techniques, such as making it easy to switch from regular to low level positions.
