HMX20C Camcorder - missing features?

by jaximflash / June 16, 2008 10:26 PM PDT

Mr Samsung:
I wonder why Samsung left out a few features from its latest flagship consumer camcorder, the SC-HMX20C. Some of the features were included in the previous model, HMX10C.

1) No HDMI output "directly" on the camcorder. The HMX10C had this.
2) No video light, again the HMX10C had this.
3) No headphone output
4) No accessory shoe
5) EIS instead of the better OIS image stabilizer

Leaving out features like this makes some consumers select the Canon HF10 instead of the Samsung HMX20C. At the very least, I wonder why Samsung left out the features that the previous model had. There must be a reason, please let us know.
