SoftPedia announced Samsung's H series camcorders as below.
Before going into further details regarding Samsung's new H-Series, it's important to mention the fact that all the four new models (HMX-H106, HMX-H105, HMX-H104 and HMX-H100) are very similar, the main difference being the storage capacity. Thus, while the H106 features the aforementioned 64GB SSD storage unit, the HMX-H105 and HMX-H104 come equipped with 32 and 16 GB solid-state drives, while the HMX-H100 relies solely on an SDHC card. The previous models also sport SDHC slots, which can be used for extending the available memory.
All four fresh H-series devices have been equipped with Schneider Kreuznach Varioplan HD lenses, which feature a 10x optical zoom and are paired with Samsung's new Optical Image Stabilizer to help reduce the blur found in footage as a result of vibrations and hand shake. Furthermore, these Schneider lenses feature a 37mm wide-angle focal length, thus making the camcorder a very good solution for recording wide-angle images.
The ElectronicForYou announced that Samsung is releasing its new 8 digital camera models including WB500 in India.
Following is the article.

TGDaily announced Samsung's H series camcorder.
The HMX-H106 is the first camcorder to feature an internal 64GB SSD. This makes the camcorder lighter weight and video storage less prone to failure as solid state drives lack moving parts like traditional hard drives.
Two of the other new models – the HMX-H105 and HMX-H104, feature 32GB and 16GB SSDs, respectively.Other features of these new HD camcorders include built-in H.264 compression for longer recording times, a Schneider Kreuznach Varioplan HD lens with 10x optical zoom for better quality images, image stabilization, HDMI connection to display recorded video content directly on HDTVs, and a built-in 2.7-inch LCD touch screen for controlling on-board functions.

LetsGoDigital announced Samsung's H series camcorders.
The Samsung HMX-H106 is Samsung’s new flagship full-HD digital camcorder, the world’s first to feature an internal 64GB Solid State Drive (SSD). Samsung’s renowned SSD technology offers a substantial advantage over the use of Hard Disk Drives (HDD) in a digital camcorder.
The Samsung HMX-H105 and Samsung HMX-H104 offer 32GB and 16GB SSDs, respectively, and like the Samsung HMX-H106, also allow consumers to expand memory capacity using an SD/SDHC memory card. The Samsung HMX H100 does not feature an internal SSD and requires the use of a SD/SDHC memory card. The new H-Series full-HD digital camcorders also utilize H.264 compression, which significantly increases recording time. At full-HD resolution and when set to fine mode, users can record up to three hours directly to the 16GB Samsung HMX-H104, six hours to the 32GB Samsung HMX H105, and an unparalleled 12 hours to the 64GB Samsung HMX-H106.
CrazyEngineers annouonced Samsung's H series camcorders.
You should've known that Canon wouldn't be able to introduce a new family of HD camcorders without Samsung hitting back with a crew of its own, so it's with that in mind that we present Samsung's H-Series.
The HMX-H106, HMX-H105, HMX-H104, and HMX-H100 all arrive with Full HD sensors and a Schneider Kreuznach Varioplan HD lens with Optical Image Stabilization, but it's the H106 that really steals the show. Said device is the first Full HD camcorder to incorporate a 64GB SSD within, while the H105 and H104 offer up 32GB and 16GB SSDs, respectively; as for the H100, you'll be providing your own SD / SDHC card before anything gets recorded. The whole crew utilizes H.264 compression, meaning that the big daddy can hold 12 hours of footage at Full HD resolution. Mum's the word on pricing / availability, but the full release is waiting just after the break.

The images taken are pretty good.
What's great about it: Easy to use, potrait technology, beauty shot, great design, really slim
What's not so great: Might not be best for experts"
I recently bought the Samsung TL100 in WH, and well, I actually wanted to share my experiences to help those who faced, well, similar problems.
First off, I’m neither a tech-geek nor am I someone really interested in buying like super-cheeky expensive stuff (Honestly as a foreign student it ain’t that easy to get around life aways)
Anyhow I was looking to buy a casual digital camera, which I could use to share some pictures on fbook. A friend of mine told me to buy a device from apetech (?; dunno if that’s the spelling).
However, I went to a mall nearby, and I have to say, some of those cameras are really expensive.It’s actually ridiculous, but since that wasn’t something I considered anyways, I just looked for this apetech-brand…and found it.It’s pretty funny but my thought at first site was like: What the …? Well this seems to be the reason, why those devices are cheaper! I mean, my pocket was limited to roughly 200 bucks and I wanted to check every device before I buy one of these ugly devices.
Well, however, before I lost my last glimpse of hope, I found a pretty little device on the other side, which was tagged 220$. Maybe not the price, I hoped for, but still, It was more affordable than most of the other products.
Anyways, the device on the other side was the Samsung TL100. And I was really impressed. I mean, it looks way more expensive than the other models and it’s really sweet. It’s designed pretty slim, but it still, it features all the functions, I wished for. Face-detection, self-portraying and video-recording …And I guess you’d imagine how this story ends.
I decided to add 20 additional bucks, and bought the Samsung. Don’t get me wrong, and I hope none will blame me for what so ever, but I never heard of this brand “Samsung” before. As said, I’m not a geek or someone interested in electro stuff either way. But what I can tell you is: This device simply rocks.
For this price, it will be impossible to find a product, which provides similar qualities. (The friend who told me to buy this apetech thingi mobaba has a Casio himself, and, even he admitted that the Samsung looks way better on pictures than the Casio).So if you’re looking for a camera providing you:- A stylish design- Zoom (first 3 times and then 5 times)- 12.2 Megapixel (?)- All functions you might wish forThen this should be your choice.
The Samsung is truly a quality product and I did not regret any moment so far. Plus, for the Samsung you don’t need any basic knowledge in order to take good pictures.My recommendation!"
Would you recommend this product to a friend?: Yes
Is this product used primarily for business?: No
