A truly modern, cutting-edge standard definition camcorder, this device from Samsung offers 8th-generation video-processing technology which results in stunning imagery and ease of use. Since a single, very fast chip is used, battery life is extended (up to three hours with a lightweight battery). It also takes still photographs
The high-quality, Schneider-Kreuznach lens gives you a massive 34x zoom, while digital image stabilisation keeps your images steady at high zoom. A colour-processing algorithm increases the number of colours the camera records, allowing your footage to retain high colour-fidelity. The use of the modern H.264 recording codec keeps image quality high, while almost doubling your recording time.
Advanced face-detection technology recognises many different faces in the frame and adjusts exposure to best capture them, taking the hard work out of creating good pictures.
The camera records at 720 x 480 resolution at 60 interlaced frames per second. Composition is easy on the large 2.7-inch widescreen panel, with a bright backlight for shooting in sunny conditions.
Records to SD, SDHC, and MMC cards (purchased separately). Connects to PC via USB 2.0, and connects to TVs via composite video.
Comes with a one-year guarantee.
Cheap for a flash memory video camera.
