Following is a link to a user review from about Samsung HMX-U10 camcorder.

Welcome to the Samsung Hmx (UMX) U10 full review.
HMX, UMX, are given names of Stores, for tracking info with the Support team.
Samsung releases their own version of a Hybrid, and a Solid feel to the Hybrid in a cast Aluminum body, a glass like lens ring, with a black metal finsih, very eligantly designed. For futher info of a Samsung product, please visit, here you'll get a poor mans review, no where else will you get a real persons opinion, with actual video, still, and answers, not even in a professional review do you get this information. so on with the Review:

We recieve our cams in many ways, purchase for someone, or your ownself. It is best to compare other camcorders, of simplicity-to- complex, and decide if this is for you.

The Samsung Hmx U10, is a step up to any hybrid, it has a touch pad, and very sensitive to the finger, that generates heat, so breathing hot air will not trigger the cam, or objects that are non human. The 2 inch tft screen is adaquate, and small, while the naviagtion section absorbs 50% plus, two door sides that cover the usb and connections, a simple green/red/ on/off button, strap and tripod on a solid cast Aluminum case, puts the finishing touches, away of the Samsung hmx U10.

So If you're looking to head out, and go out out in style, this may be what you're looking for. lets get right to the details of the cam.

Details: exterior


The Front is all aluminum, with a glass like Ring around the cmos lense (25-26mm). that protrudges piggybacked to the tft screen. f=7.9mm f:3.0, and samsung lettering, and 10 megapixals lettering. 27mm wide angle slips over the lens.


Side left, no. 1, your power on/off red/green/blue led light. no. 2 Reset button behind the top most part of door ac plug port on top side of rubbr banded door. no. 3 sd/mmc card slot external no internal memory (0kb/mb) Side right no. 4 av output,and usb port 2.0 interface. no. 5 plastic tripod side port, with 50% (squared screw) plastic screw, and set screw supported.. see pic top/bottom


The backs side no. 1 the 2 inc screen color tft. no. 2 simple control, video, playback still buttons 3. Rear Internal tri sterio Microphone( one of three mics) touch sensitive 5 way control, plus return set up, and repeat srensitve buttons. no. 5 camera strap

top / bottom

top/bottom Tri sterio Internal mic left and right are shown on the 90 degree angle. while the botton shows camera strap.

the tripod attachment has a half screw, and plastic. aftermarkettripod swival will be a nice fit without the attachment.

Accessorries from samsung are a pouch, sdhc card optional. No remote control.

Aftermarket products are no liit to what put's their mind to.

Overall of details, and conclusion.
I am quite impressed with this sleak looking Model Very nice looking. I am not happy with the type of button position or indentations set in the cam, there are none.
On/off is small, rec/play/still flush. no lights for the touchpad. I be shocked with excitement if Samsung would have thought tossing a colored light to the glass like ring, that would ruined video recording like the Kodak zi8. the screen is way small, and the font/icons a killer for old eyes. the Cam fits in a pocket and you feel like the lense is just missing a cap, I am sure aa wide angle cap will fit just fine. a geat job Samsung has done, the angle is not bad, but big hands will suffer what I can see in the near future skins, neopreem covers.

My rating for this device in detail 4 out of 5 Touchpad, power needs improvements.

Review: Samsung NX10

DPReview posted information about Samsung NX10 digital camera.


As with many cameras at this price point, the NX10 features a 3.0" VGA (640x480 pixel) screen. However, it uses two technologies that distinguish it from almost every other camera on the market - firstly it is an AMOLED (Active Matrix Organic Light Emitting Diode) screen that selectively emits light, rather than an LCD which selectively blocks the light coming from a large white light-source behind the panel. This produces efficiency benefits that should result in better battery life compared to conventional TFT screens.

The other difference is that, rather than using a red, a green and a blue dot to represent each pixel, it uses pairs of sub-pixels to present the same information, without any visual difference. This technology, originally developed by a Californian company, is now owned by Samsung and the results seem very impressive - the screen is very bright, has a wide viewing angle and looks very detailed.

The 3.0" AMOLED screen is simply superb: dark blacks, excellent contrast, a wide viewing angle and a high refresh rate. The unusual ('PenTile') RGB array gives a visually higher resolution than you'd expect from 614k pixels whilst keeping power consumption down.

Electronic Viewfinder

The NX10 - like the Panasonic GH1/G1 twins - features a low profile color electronic viewfinder. Whilst not as impressive as the G1/GH1 (or the Olympus E-P2's add-on unit), it's still very good, with 921,000 dots, 100% frame coverage and a large, bright image (it's around the same size as most entry-level APS-C SLRs). Just underneath the viewfinder is an eye sensor that automatically switches between the screen and EVF when you look into it (annoyingly you can't turn this off and - on our sample - it is activated by things several inches away passing in front of it).

Viewfinder size

One figure hidden away in every SLR's spec is the size of the viewfinder (often in a format that makes comparison between competing models impossible). The size of the viewfinder is a key factor in the usability of an SLR - the bigger it is, the easier it is to frame and focus your shots, and the more enjoyable and involving process it is.

Because of the way viewfinders are measured (using a fixed lens, rather than a lens of equivalent magnification), you also need to take the sensor size into account, so the numbers in the diagram below are the manufacturer's specified magnifications divided by the respective 'crop factors'.

The diagram below shows the relative size of the viewfinders of the Samsung NX10, Panasonic GH1, Olympus E-620 and - for reference - the EOS-1Ds Mark III (currently the biggest viewfinder on the DSLR market). The Samsung NX10's viewfinder is essentially the same size as those of found on entry-level digital SLRs from Nikon, Canon, Sony etc.

Screen / Viewfinder view

The NX10's new user interface is pretty and generally functional too. There's little in the way of customization of the display (you can hide the numerous icons down the sides of the preview and add grid lines, but that's it). The main shooting information is shown in a nice faux SLR viewfinder strip. The display on the EVF and main screen is identical. We'd like to see the option to use the EVF for framing and the rear screen as a status / control panel (something the Panasonic G1/GH1 manages) - then you really could use the NX10 just like any conventional SLR.

You can alter the level of information shown on screen but you always get this natty exposure info strip along the bottom.

The Fn button brings up a Function menu that contains all the most commonly accessed controls (even dedicated external controls tend to invoke a menu of some type, meaning accidental changes are rare, but it's not the fastest camera to operate).

The NX10's screen can get a bit busy if you leave the full info display turned on, but it does have the advantage that you can see pretty much everything you need to know at a glance. The diagram below shows the main icons you'll see when using the NX10.

Battery / battery Charger

The NX10 uses a new 1300mAh 74V (9.6Wh) Li-Ion cell that locks snugly into place in the battery compartment in the grip of the camera. The battery is charged in the supplied BC1310. We don't have any information at the moment on battery life, but on our pre-production sample it seemed excellent.

SD Card Slot

Like most of cameras at this end of the market, the NX10 accepts the popular SD format of memory card (including the larger capacity SDHC variety). The card slot sits under a sturdy slide-out spring-bound door (there's no lock but the door is stiff enough to avoid accidental opening).


On the left hand side of the camera is the familiar micro USB digital/video connector and a c-type Mini HDMI connector for connection to your HDTV. No HDMI cable is included with the camera, however, so that's something you may need to invest it. The NX10 also sports a remote-in socket (for the optional wired remote release) and an AC port (for use with the optional mains adaptor).

REVIEW – Samsung ST1000 Digital Camera

Following is a product review about Samsung ST1000 digital camera.

REVIEW  - Samsung ST1000 Digital Camera

Many of us tend to lead hyper-connected lifestyles these days and we simply cannot be bothered with all of those different cables. If you’re feeling the itch to cut a few cords, you may be interested in the Samsung ST1000 digital camera.

You might remember the unboxing video that I posted last week, giving you a glimpse at what could be the most highly connected consumer camera to date. This thing has wireless radios up the wazoo.

Features and Box Contents

As a quick refresher, the Samsung ST1000 is meant to approach the slim consumer digital camera market, but it brings many features that you may not find in many of its competitors. This 12.2-megapixel camera gets 5x optical zoom, a 3.5-inch WVGA touchscreen, smart gesture UI, smart auto mode, advanced dual image stabilization, and up to ISO 3200.

Perhaps even notable, as mentioned, is its highly connected nature. You get GPS for geo-tagging, Bluetooth for wireless file transfers, and Wi-Fi for uploads. This includes the ability to upload your pictures and videos directly to Facebook, Picasa, YouTube, and more.

REVIEW  - Samsung ST1000 Digital Camera

Unlike nearly every other digital camera out there, the Samsung ST1000 does not use the standard SD memory card format. It has a little bit of internal storage, but the main memory card slot is actually microSD. Thankfully, the cellphone-centric format has gone down significantly in price, so picking up an 8GB card (or bigger) won’t cost too much.

Forget About Buttons

Flipping around to the back of the camera, you’ll find that it doesn’t have much in terms of physical controls. There is one small button toward the top-right that gets you into playback mode, but all the other modifications are done through the touchscreen.

REVIEW  - Samsung ST1000 Digital Camera

From what I can tell, the touch display is capacitive, just like the iPhone. When I tried going through the on-screen menu to adjust the settings, I could not do it when I had a glove on. What this means is that while the touchscreen is finger-friendly, it may not necessarily be winter-friendly.

The on-screen user interface very much mimics the interface you would have with hardware buttons. You can touch the icons on the screen to adjust the flash, autofocus, self-timer, image stabilization, geotagging, and so on. The right and bottom “buttons” can be stowed away like a hidden dock. This works quite well and it gives you good access to all the features.

If you have the geotagging feature activated and the camera is able to detect your location, you can have it show the name of the town or city on the screen as well. This can also come up when you’re browsing through your photos on the camera, since they can be sorted not only by date, but also by location.

Connecting via Wi-Fi… Sort Of

This certainly isn’t the first camera with Wi-Fi, but I do like the ability to upload pictures taken directly to the world wide web. Unfortunately, it seems to only scan for SSIDs that are visible and available.

REVIEW  - Samsung ST1000 Digital Camera

You can access protected networks, but you can’t access networks whose SSIDs are hidden. That’s a pain for security enthusiasts who do that (like me). I’ve encountered similar issues with WiFi-equipped photo frames and this is something that all makers of consumer electronics should bear in mind.

And the Picture Quality?

I thought the picture quality offered by the Samsung ST1000 was quite good. Shown above is a macro shot that I took at Starbucks and it was able to pick up on the colors quite well.

You can see a few more sample shots on my Flickr account, including a couple where I used the “classic” color option. This makes for a great grayscale photo and you can apply filters like it from the playback menu as well as during the photoshoot itself.


REVIEW  - Samsung ST1000 Digital Camera

If you’re the kind of person who values all sorts of wireless connectivity and you love messing around with big touchscreen displays, the Samsung ST1000 seems to be a very solid choice. The build quality is great, the picture quality turns out quite good, and the optical zoom doesn’t result in a protruding lens. The geotagging is a nice touch too.

I would have really liked to see a stronger Wi-Fi utility that allowed for connection to hidden SSIDs and this camera is a little heavier than I would have liked, but this is still a great picture-taker. Too bad it’s currently listing at over $500.

Samsung Barges Into Flip Territory With HMX-U10 1080p Pocket Camcorder

Here is a review about Samsung HMX-U10 camcorder.

Samsung has finally joined the illustrious, bulging ranks of Flip-imitating manufacturers, announcing the HMX-U10, a 1080p-recording, 10-megapixel-shooting compact camcorder set to land in September.

It's a form-factor that doesn't leave much room for creativity, but Samsung's managed to put together a distinctive product with the HMX-U10. The slightly swept design allows for more comfortable gripping than the flat bricks we've all grown accustomed to, and the compact profile—56mm x 103mm x 15.5mm—belies its solid specs, and most notably its ability to record 1080p H.264 video, as opposed to the industry standard 720p. Otherwise, we're in familiar territory here: there's a one-touch YouTube upload button, fixed-focus lens, expandable SD storage and a two-inch LED screen.

Also, with the emphasis on still shooting, I'm noticing a conceptual problem: point-and-shoot cameras have been getting more and more video savvy in the last few years, and now, mini- are aspiring to be pocket cameras. They're roughly the same size, and assuming a tag of around $200—suspected, but not certain—for the HMX-U10, fall into the same price range. The future won't be pretty for one category or the other, and that's not even considering the increasingly capable imaging capabilities of modern smartphones. Exactly what will kill what (and what we'll be left with) is still up in the air, but you can rest assured the slaughter will be well-recorded.

The Samsung NX10's Innovative Technology Provides 'Best in Class' Features with a Large APS-C Size Sensor, Bright AMOLED Screen and Fast Auto Focus to Give Users Ultimate Performance


Ridgefield Park, NJ (January 4, 2010) - Samsung Electronics America, Inc., a market leader and award-winning innovator in consumer electronics, today announced the Samsung NX10 - an innovative digital camera that provides users with optimum image quality in a sleek, compact body. Delivering creativity without compromise, users can now be as creative as they want on the move, without having to compromise perfect images. The NX10 will be on display during the 2010 International Consumer Electronics Show, January 7-10, in the Samsung booth #11026 in the Central Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center.  

The NX10 incorporates a fast and decisive auto focus (AF), 14.6 MP APS-C size CMOS sensor and unique, large 3.0" AMOLED screen, allowing users to easily view their images, even in bright sunlight. Users can also record in HD movie to create the full story. Available in two colors, Noble Black and Titan Silver, the Samsung NX10 is small, light and ergonomically designed to ensure maximum portability for everyday use.

The Samsung NX10 ensures users never miss a moment, with one of the fastest AF in its class on the market. The company's latest innovation, the new DRIMe II Pro engine and advanced AF algorithm, also provide ultra fast AF speed with the higher precision of contrast AF.

The Samsung NX10 has the heart of a DSLR embedded inside the compact frame of a digital camera, successfully integrating the APS-C size CMOS sensor with a mirrorless interchangeable lens, for a sleek, lightweight camera that users can easily take with them everywhere they go.

Consumers are not just limited to taking shots but can also tell their own stories in video format with HD movie recording (H.264 codec).


Samsung continues to extend the usage of AMOLED screens across many products, using a large 3.0" AMOLED screen in Samsung NX10. AMOLED provides easier viewing even in bright sunshine and at acute viewing angles, meaning users no longer need to shield their screen with their hand. The category leading screen also provides 10,000 times faster response rate than conventional LCDs, has a far lower power consumption and higher contrast ratio - 10,000:1 vs. 500:1.

"The new Samsung NX10 marks the start of the next generation of cameras," said Mr. SJ Park, CEO of Samsung Digital Imaging Company. "We know from our detailed research over several years that what consumers want from their cameras is evolving, which we've reflected in the development of the Samsung NX10. With specialist equipment open to everyone and no longer restricted solely to the professional, more and more people want to capture something creative and tell a story through their camera - but they also want something compact that they can carry around with them all day. The large sensor and the ultra fast auto focus give consumers the quality they demand as well as the compactness they want in one exceptional package."

Mr. Park continued: "Samsung has always been quick to implement cutting edge technology and no more so when it comes to quality of images. For the first time in the market, Samsung has successfully integrated an APS-C size sensor into a compact body by eliminating the mirror box, meaning that our users can now be as creative as they want to be on the move without having to compromise on image quality."

The Samsung NX10 also contains a range of intelligent features to put professional quality images within reach of the amateur photographer. The Samsung NX10 includes in-depth manual controls and also a Smart Auto function which automatically detects the surrounding environment of the shot and selects the best shooting mode. Its Smart Range feature also enables the user to vividly express both bright areas and dark areas in the same frame, and the Supersonic Dust Reduction system keeps those dust particles clear of the image sensor that can often impair an image. It even senses when the user brings the camera close to their face to look through the viewfinder, and puts the AMOLED screen on standby to conserve power.

Samsung Unveils Interchangeable-Lens NX10 Camera

Samsung is the first company out of the gate with a major camera announcement at CES 2010, unveiling the first model in its NX series. The company announced the NX series at PMA 2009 early last year, but the NX10 is the first real-world NX series offering.

The Samsung NX10 is an interchangeable-lens model that's slightly less bulky than a DSLR, offering a 14.6-megapixel APS-C-size CMOS sensor that's significantly larger than the sensors found in Micro Four-Thirds system cameras from Panasonic and Olympus. The NX10 has the ability to shoot 720p HD video as MPEG-4 files at 30 frames per second.

Like the Micro Four-Thirds system cameras released last year by Panasonic and Olympus, Samsung's NX cameras eliminate the mirror box found in the body of traditional DSLR cameras. This allows the NX10 to have a more compact frame than a DSLR while still retaining the capability to swap lenses; the NX10 clocks in at 4.8 inches wide, 3.4 inches high, and 1.6 inches deep, and it weighs 0.78 pounds without the lens.

Samsung HMX-U10 review

Following is a review about Samsung U10 camcorder.

Stuff says

Superb video and a comfortable design, but those fiddly touchscreen menus can make it an awkward customer
* * * *

  • Pros Stellar stills and video. Ultra-comfortable to hold. USB charging
  • Cons Lack of HDMI port. Troublesome touch-sensitive controls. Impractical zoom

The big guns have well and truly arrived in pocket camcorder town. What was once a playground for Flip and Creative is now a warzone for Kodak’s Zi8, Sony’s MHS-PM1 and now Samsung’s debut, the 1080p U10.

Its claim to fame is an angled, ergonomic design. The 7-degree bend in the body shape certainly gives it a unique profile, and makes it easier to frame video and take 10MP stills.

Choices, choices
A practical selection of shooting options – from the Full HD of 1920x1080 to 1280x720, and also 720x480 – lets you choose between squeezing more footage onto your SDHC/SD card or opting for less footage but at a better resolution for watching on your TV.

Those wise owls at Samsung have also provided charging options: you can power up from the mains or connect the U10 to a computer and charge it via USB. This makes sense as most pocket shooters trade heavily on the potential to quickly upload clips to sharing sites like YouTube and Flickr.

Review continues after the break...


PC users are also treated to embedded software. This allows super-fast uploading, as the software opens as soon as you connect the cam to a PC.

It’s then a simple case of selecting the movies you want to post and pressing the one-touch sharing button. Mac users aren’t left out, though – the U10 records in the H.264 codec, so you can also play clips using QuickTime.

Zoom alert
The U10 does suffer a few rocky moments, chiefly due to omissions from what is otherwise an excellent range of features. There’s no HDMI output to allow you to connect to a high-def telly, which is a shame when the U10 is capable of shooting in Full HD.

The digital zoom is also baffling. Shoot in anything other than Full HD and you have a 4x zoom – but select Full HD and you have no zoom at all.

And, be warned, the U10 boasts some touch-sensitive controls. These look nice but are unresponsive, making it frustrating when you want to be snappy with your menu selections.

Impressive colours
Time for the upswing: the results from both video and stills are superb. The colours and level of detail are impressive for a cam (and lens) this small. So, whether you’re watching them on your computer or sharing them with your family online, everyone will be impressed – unless you’re uncles are the Coen brothers.

Admittedly, the low-light performance isn’t the greatest, but that’s a cross most pocket-sized cams have to bear. If you can handle the frustration of its touchscreen menu system, the Samsung U10 is well worth an audition.

Samsung NX10 priced and dated for UK

Here is an information about Samsung NX10 camera.Samsung NX10 priced and dated for UK. Cameras, Prosumer cameras, Samsung, Samsung NX10, Digital cameras 0

20 January 2010 10:08 GMT / By Stuart Miles

Samsung has said that it believes the hybrid camera market, where it is positioning its new NX10 model, will be the key battleground in 2010 as it tries to break the 1m camera sales barrier it has been trapped underneath for the last 3 years.

The comments come as the company officially confirmed that the new NX10 model, first announced at CES earlier in the month, would be hitting the UK in March starting at £599.

There will be four lens kit variants to entice consumers looking for more than just a compact and something not as bulky as a DSLR, to the new Samsung offering and away from its competitors the Panasonic and Olympus Micro Four Thirds models.

Those hoping to take advantage of the camera's features like the AMOLED screen, built-in flash and electronic viewfinder will be able to get a 18-55mm lens and the camera for £599, or a 30mm pancake lens and camera for £649, or a 18-55mm and 50-200mm lens with camera for £699 or finally a 18-55mm and the pancake lens for £749.

Steve Mitchell, general manager marketing, Digital Imaging Division confirmed to journalists at the launch that the NX10 was just the start of "new models for the first half of the year" implying an NX20 could be expected perhaps in time for Photokina in the Autumn.

"We had the GX10 and the then GX20, so an NX20 wouldn't be a tough stretch," a spokesman for the company told Pocket-lint before confirming that "Samsung has promised to release around three lenses a year."

VIDEO: Unboxing the Samsung ST1000 Digital Camera

Here is an unboxing story about Samsung ST1000 GPS digital camera.

 VIDEO: Unboxing the Samsung ST1000 Digital Camera
Digital cameras are getting more and more advanced by the moment. It’s simply not good enough to take decent pictures anymore, since customers want their cameras to do so much more. Perhaps epitomizing this movement is the recently released Samsung ST1000.

On the surface, it may look like any number of other consumer-level point-and-shoot cameras, but the ST1000 comes with a whole whack of impressive features. This could be one of the most highly connected cameras in recent memory, since it can send stuff to the web via Wi-Fi, connect to other devices via Bluetooth, and geotag every shot with GPS.

The Samsung ST1000 shoots at a maximum of 12.2 megapixels and it can get in close with its 5x optical zoom. The entire back of the camera is occupied with a 3.5-inch touchscreen display, so you don’t really do much with hardware buttons aside from power and shutter.

You can expect a more comprehensive review here in the next week or two. In the meantime, check out the brief hands-on and unboxing video that I have embedded below.

Samsung's HMX-U10 Pocket Video Camcorder

Here is a short review about Samsung HMX-U10 camcorder.

The Samsung SMX-U10 is a new pocket camcorder that goes head-to-head with the Flip Ultra and Kodak Zx1. The U10 can (allegedly) do full 1080p video and 10-megapixel still photos. That's big talk; whether it can back it up with real quality isn't clear. By Administrator

In the meantime, competitors like Kodak have begun to address those concerns with their own pocket camcorders. In our review of the Kodak Zx1, we were very impressed with the company's efforts in expanding the potential of what has been a very barebones style to this point.

Now, Samsung has decided to enter the pocket camcorder fray, and their initial model is (at least according to initially announced specifications), far beyond what one might expect.

Broader Features: Still Photos, Full HD

The biggest feature on the all-new Samsung HMX-U10 pocket camcorder is its resolution. The U10 offers full, 1080p high-definition video. No other (reputable) pocket camcorder can boast such a resolution, with the Flip and Kodak models topping out at 720p. Sony's "Webby" camcorders have tricky 1440 x 1080 pixel resolution, which they try to claim is full HD but isn't.

Common sense dictates that a camera with a manufacturer's retail price of $199, like the HMX-U10, should not be able to produce accurate, high-quality 1080p video. Because it's Samsung, we're willing to give them the benefit of the doubt, but will remain skeptical until we can get our hands on a unit for review. The U10 uses H.264 video compression.

Convergence: 10-Megapixel Stills

Still photo functionality has been elusive on pocket camcorders, for reasons that are unclear. The Flip camcorders avoided it completely, one of our biggest criticisms of the brand. Kodak's Zx1 threw in a fairly adequate 3-megapixel still photo mode, which was a nice step forward. Samsung claims that the U10 will have a 10-megapixel still photo mode, which, just like the 1080p video, is a very big claim for such a small, inexpensive camcorder.

The U10's 10-megapixel photos will not look as good as a 10-megapixel photo from a true digital camera. For starters, the U10 has no optical zoom and (it seems) no image stabilization. 10 megapixels might just be overkill in a camcorder like this, but since it doesn't drive the price up too much, it's not much of a concern.

Conclusion: Wait and See

It's hard to pass judgment on the U10 without seeing it. Its bold claims strain credulity. If it does somehow manage to produce high-quality 1080p video and 10-megapixel stills, however, it's sure to completely blow open this market and send Flip back to the drawing board.

Flashing dazzling~ pinkholic ES55(SL102)

Tester as Relief in such boredom~ You know my digital camera~ Such a big size, small LCD window, and 3.4M pixels. I’ve been using this well for a long time, but once I have used the new one, I don’t think I will use the old one. What should I do?01

Comparing ES55(SL102) to cell phone06

It’s shorter than the cell phone. And what about the color? It’s so pretty. It’s good, because it’s not that unique pink. Looking at it, I’m so happy.


2.5 inch wide LCD. I smiled while taking a self shot. So happy.08

The menu seems complicated, but it’s very convenient to use. Selecting the scene in the mode, you can select it among beauty shot / night scene / portrait / kid / scenery / macro / character / sunset / dawn / backlight / firework / beach / snow.

I don’t know picture setting. Just select things. Then it’s okay.

The beauty makes skin gorgeous. I’m going to use this a lot.14_1

The appearance becomes different, and the circular type battery changes to the exclusive battery of the ES55(SL102). I prefer the exclusive battery. Ah! The USB port has the rubber to prevent from losing. It’s good, because it prevents from losing, but I need to be careful when plugging the USB. I might break the rubber. It should have been better if it wasn’t bothering like this. 17


Isn’t it pretty?

Those pictures are taken by the ES55(SL102). I took a lot of picture yesterday, and I will upload them later. I just show you the first 3 pictures. Pictures are good enough. Thank you for reading~!!20

Samsung HMX-U10 point-and-shoot 10MP camcorder

The SlashGear posted a review about Samsung HMX-U10 camcorder.
Samsung have unveiled their latest camcorder, and unlike some of the company’s more serious models the HMX-U10 has casual point-and-shoot in mind. A compact 56 x 103 x 15.5mm with a kick in the design to better fit your hand, the upright camera boasts both 10-megapixel stills capture and 1920 x 1080 Full HD video.

Intended to take on the Flip UltraHD, which we reviewed back in May, the HMX-U10 records to SDHC card and uses the H.264 video codec. Around the back there’s a 2-inch LCD for framing and reviewing, together with basic controls; the 1/2.3-inch CMOS lens is fixed focus and seemingly lacks any sort of zoom.

Plugging the camcorder into a PC kick starts Samsung’s Intelli-Share app, which allows for basic editing and one-touch YouTube uploads. The Samsung HMX-U10 will go on sale this September in the US, priced at $200.

Press Release:


Ultra-Compact HMX-U10 Pocket Camcorder takes full-HD video and 10 mega-pixel stills for fast and easy sharing.

14 July 2009 – Samsung, leaders in innovation and digital imaging, today extended its family of Full HD digital camcorders to make recording and viewing video in HD easier than ever.

The HMX-U10 is an ultra compact camcorder that records in full-HD and also allows users to take 10 mega-pixel still photos. A one-touch “upload” button provides a direct connection to YouTube™ for fast and easy video sharing.

Full-HD video recording
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 1920×1080 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.

Ultra-compact design
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.

Unique features
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.

“The addition of the HMX-U10 adds strength to an already impressive line-up of Samsung camcorders and offers a digital video recording solution for everyone” said Steve Mitchell, General Manager Marketing, Samsung Digital Imaging Division.

The HMX-U10 Camcorder will be available from leading high street and online retailers from September 2009.
