Samsung's first HD camcorder

Samsung announces its first high definition camcorder at CES 2007

Looking down the barrel of the SC-HMX10

Sure, they took their time, but now Samsung has officially announced their intention to join the HD camcorder revolution with the SC-HMX10, which records AVCHD video to either 4GB of built-in flash memory, or SD/MMC cards . As is typical of higher-end camcorders, the SC-HMX10 has a relatively short, 10x optical zoom lens, but it does sport a 2.7-inch 16:9 touch screen LCD screen.

Samsung hasn't yet shared very many details about this camcorder, but given the relatively small amount of built-in memory, and its somewhat anemic 1.5-megapixel CCD sensor, the outlook is seems less than stellar.

We hope we haven't gotten your hopes up too high, because you won't be able to see this camcorder anytime soon. Samsung expects the SC-HMX10 to start shipping this September for a price of about $850.
