Samsung today introduced new camcorders that make recording and viewing video in HD easy. The HMX-U10 is an ultra compact camcorder that records in full-HD and takes 10 mega-pixel still photos. It also allows users to easily share content online with its one-touch "upload" button to YouTube. The HMX-U10 will come out in the second-half of 2009.
The HMX-U10 is the ideal solution for the consumer looking for ultimate portability and ease‑of‑use in an HD camcorder. The HMX-U10 offers full-HD video recording with 1920?1080 resolution. The HMX-U10?s 1/2.3 inch CMOS sensor also gives consumers the ability to capture impressive 10 mega-pixel digital still images, all which can be reviewed on the camcorder?s clear, two-inch LCD screen. At 56mm x 103mm x 15.5mm, and weighing just 95g including the battery, the HMX-U10 is ultra-compact with an ergonomic design that breaks free of the traditional look and feel of pocket-sized camcorders. Its sleek frame is accentuated by a wave-design that angles the body of the camcorder at seven degrees, allowing users to grip the camcorder more comfortably, reducing any related stress on the wrist or arm. This same ergonomic design philosophy is also found in the SMX-C14 and SMX-C10 camcorders, which feature Samsung?s unique Active Angle Lens.
No longer do consumers need to worry about being near their home computer in order to edit or share their video. The HMX-U10 features Samsung?s play-edit-sharing program called intelli‑studio. The camcorders? built-in intelli-studio program allows consumers to turn any computer into a mobile studio, giving them the ability to edit and play their video without having to install supporting software. Sharing is also simplified using intelli-studio as the program takes the hassle out of uploading content to popular video‑sharing Web sites. For example, a one-touch ?upload? button, available directly on the HMX-U10, provides a direct connection to YouTube, further reducing the number of steps needed to upload footage. In addition, the camcorders also allow basic on-camera editing, including the ability to split video files.
