Samsung pushes the HD quality envelope with new camcorder
Samsung’s new SC-HMX20 HD camcorder shoots in full high definition of 1920 × 1080 thanks to a 6.4-megapixel CMOS sensor that also has a stunning 8-megapixel still camera capability. It can also shoot what’s called super slow motion at 300 frames per second. Wow. That’s enough to help me with my golf swing or those overdue balloon bursting physics experiments for school.
The new SC-HMX20 also features a 10x zoom – which is a tad average and is disappointing considering the push the envelope attitude of the design. It’s 2.7-inch touchscreen LCD also doubles as a menu interface with easy to follow menus and setup screens. The SD-HMX20 uses SDHC cards through a built-in card slot along side it’s 8GB of internal memory. The high speed internal memory also means a faster startup time as the HMX20 powers on in a blazing 2.4 seconds. Battery life is also improved as a result. The camcorder also comes with a cradle with a built-in charging port, USB and TV-out cables.
The camera has a built in flash for low light still conditions, dual recording mode, and rotating grip.
Cost is about $850 USD .
