Forget the economy: Samsung’s press
conference was so packed that despite the
several hundred they let in, a hundred or so more
spilled over into the press room. No matter,
though — let’s get to the goods.
Samsung’s new H-Series full-HD camcorders
Samsung’s new H-Series of full-HD digital
camcorders (HMX-H100, HMX-H104, HMX-
H105, HMX-H106) has been announced. The
HMX-H106, Samsung’s new flagship full-HD
digital camcorder, is “the world’s first to feature an internal 64GB SSD, which the
company is also conveniently announcing here. The company says its SSD
technology is faster than HDD, including quicker boot-up and read/write speeds
which is required for the amount of data recorded in full-HD resolution: when actively
reading and writing data, approx. 1/8th of the power of a comparable HDD is
The HMX-H105 and HMX-H104 offer 32GB and 16GB SSDs, respectively, and like
the flagship H106, also allow for memory expansion using an SD/SDHC memory
The HMX H100 does not feature the SSD and requires an SD/SDHC memory card.
The new camcorders utilize H.264 compression, and users can record up to three
hours directly to the 16GB HMX-H104, six hours to the 32GB HMX H105, and an
unparalleled 12 hours to the 64GB HMX-H106 (at full-HD resolution and set to fine
All of the camcorders feature a 1/4.5 inch, 2.2 mega-pixel CMOS imaging sensor, a
10x optical zoom, Schneider Kreuznach Varioplan HD lens and Optical Image
Stabilization. They also have an HDMI connection, and each unit can capture 4.7
mega-pixel digital still photos.
The H106 will be available in April 2009, and the H105, H104, and H100 will be
available in March 2009.
Samsung has also announced its SMX-F34
YouTube-friendly compact camcorder. It has a
battery life of up to three hours, Schneider optics,
built-in memory, digital still photo capability, and
Samsung’s 42x Intelli-Zoom. It features a
memory card slot for SD/SDHC and 16GB of
internal flash memory, and thanks to H.264 compression, is able to record up to eight
hours of SD video with the 16GB built-in memory.
The SMX-F34 offers a CCD sensor that delivers a resolution of 720×480, and
features a Web & Mobile shooting mode for YouTube and the like. The ability to
capture digital still photos separates the SMX-F34 from the company’s current SC-
MX20, with a dedicated Photo mode to allow the capture of 800×600 resolution
The SMX-F34 will be available in four colors: black, silver, red and blue, all trimmed
in silver and touting a swivel hand-grip. It will be available spring 2009.
The HMX-R10 is a CMOS-based full-HD digital
camcorder that offers the ability to take 9MP
digital stills. It’s also got different ergonomics:
“Thanks to the lens being angled at 25 degrees,
the user can grip the camcorder in a more
relaxed manner and record their subjects with
ease, further reducing the stress on one’s wrist,”
according to the company. It also has a 5x optical
zoom and swiveling 2.7 inch touchscreen LCD. It
will be available summer 2009.
