The HMX-U10 is the ideal solution if you're looking for ultimate portability and ease of use in a full HD camcorder. The HMX-U10 offers full-HD video recording with 1920x1080 resolution. The HMX-U10's 1/2.3 inch CMOS sensor gives the ability to capture impressive 10 mega-pixel digital still images, all of 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 stress on the wrist or arm. This same ergonomic design philosophy is also found in the HMX-R10 and SMX-C10 camcorders, which both feature Samsung's unique Active Angle Lens.
The new HMX-U10 follows in the footsteps of the newly introduced SMX-C10 and boasts several unique features to make video recording even more enjoyable, including Samsung's built-in intelli-studio software, animated thumbnails, and a versatile charging system.
The HMX-U10 features Samsung's play-edit-sharing program called intelli-studio so you can edit or share your video without access to a PC. When you do connect, the camcorder's built-in intelli-studio program allows you to turn any computer into a mobile studio, giving you the ability to edit and play your video without having to install supporting software.
Sharing is also simplified as the intelli-studio program takes the hassle out of uploading content to popular video sharing websites. A one-touch "upload" button, available on the HMX-U10, provides a direct connection to YouTube, so footage can be online within seconds of shooting. In addition, the camcorders also allow basic on-camera editing, including the ability to split video files.
The animated thumbnail feature simplifies searching for video clips. Every video clip is represented by a small thumbnail on the LCD screen which provides a short playback when highlighted by the user
