Samsung is boasting about their new affordable HD camcorder the HMX-Q10 and maybe rightfully so. It has a sleek design that is enhanced by the ability to use right or left handed. Yes that is right a left handed camcorder that automatically changes the display orientation depending on which hand is holding it.
The design is simplistic with a large ergonomic record button and zoom toggle at the rear within easy reach of the thumb no matter which hand is holding the HMX-Q10. Other functions are controlled via the 2.7 inch touch-screen interface.
Images are captured through a Schneider-Kreuznach Varioplan-HD F1.8 10x optical zoom lens with OIS and then proceesed through the 5MP BSI CMOS sensor displaying full HD video. Granted it’s 60i, but considering the $299 price tag that’s not so bad. Look for the HMX-Q10 to hit shelves next month. [Read more…]
