Las Vegas (NV) – Samsung is showing off at the Consumer Electronics Show this week four new HD camcorders, including a flagship model offering a 64GB SSD for video storage. Dubbed HMX-H106, it will be available in April, with the other three showing up in March.
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.
