Samsung flash camcorder
Another Samsung product making an appearance at CES is the SC-HMX20C, a new digital camcorder. Unlike many such devices the 20C plays host to built-in flash memory, amounting to 8GB; this works in addition to any SDHC/MMC+ cards inserted into the camera. Video is recorded on a 6.4-megapixel CMOS sensor with electronic image stabilization, and is generally captured in 1080p at 30fps. The camera is also able to capture at 300fps in 10-second bursts, allowing the creation of slow-motion sequences.
When shooting as a still camera, the 20C can interpolate images up to eight megapixels, apply electronic flash, and expose for faces using built-in recognition software. All image results are checked on a 2.7-inch LCD, and a swiveling handgrip permits shots from odd angles, including low ones. The camera will be released in May of this year.
