As CES 2011 is coming, Samsung has just made a pre-CES announcement about its new HMX-Q10 affordable Full HD digital camcorder. The camcorder includes Samsung’s newly developed Switch Grip technology, which ensures that when filming, the LCD screen adapts to how the camcorder body is being held allowing users to maintain perfect control over their video, whether they are left- or right-handed.
The Samsung HMX-Q10 features a 5 Megapixel BSI CMOS sensor, Schneider-Kreuznach Varioplan-HD F1.8 10x optical zoom lens, OIS (Optical Image Stabilization) Duo system, and a 2.7-inch touchscreen LCD with 2D S-Motion graphics UI. It records 1920×1080 60i Full HD video and 4.6 Megapixel still images. The camcorder offers face detection, Smart Auto mode, auto focus, and HD Time Lapse recording features as well.
The HMX-Q10 has USB port for PC connection and charging and HDMI and composite outputs. It will be released in February for $299.
