Samsung Launches HMX-Q10, Full-HD Camcorder
Samsung, a dealer in semiconductor, telecommunication, digital media and digital convergence technologies, launched the HMX-Q10, a practical and affordable, full HD camcorder, at the International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. Featuring the BSI CMOS sensor, the new recorder makes use of switch grip technology to make video capture an easy procedure.
Switch grip means that no matter how the camcorder is held, the G-magnetic sensor inside the HMX-Q10 recognizes the angle and turns the LCD display so it’s easy to see, and controls recording easily from any angle. It can also be used as a 4.9 megapixel camera.
The camera is lightweight and portable, which makes it easy to carry anywhere, and includes advanced features like a Schneider-Kreuznach Varioplan-HD F1.8 lens with 10x optical zoom, Optical Image Stabilization, USB and HDMI connectivity. The camera operations and control can be handled via the 2.7-inch LCD screen itself.
In a press release, officials with Samsung (News - Alert) commented that the launch of this new camera is one of the best demonstrations of Samsung’s continuing innovation, providing high performing features and design in a model that makes the best camcorder experience available to all of its customers. Its innovative switch grip technology makes the Samsung HMX-Q10 adapt to the consumer’s lifestyle and setting. In addition, features such as easy operation via the LCD and smart access UI takes the confusion out of recording, so that users can instantly record brilliant movies without the need for an instruction manual.
The camcorder captures video in 1920x1080/60i full HD and has a built-in 5MP BSI CMOS sensor, which reduces noise and distortion enabling users to capture crisp images for their movies. Smart auto scene recognition technology analyzes elements and video composition issues such as brightness, motion, color and subject and prepares the best setting for the user so that the video captured is at its best quality.
The company stated that the new Samsung HMX-Q10 full HD camcorder will be available to users starting in February for a retail price of $299.
