Samsung VP-HMX10

In advance of next week's IFA expo in Berlin, Samsung today provided a glimpse of the VP-HMX10. The camcorder is the first compact HD model from Samsung and is only slightly larger than the barrel that holds the 10X optical zoom lens. The company also seeks to break away from the trend towards interlaced 1080 shooting by offering 720p recording in its place, eliminating visual artifacts and the need for de-interlacing in a video editor. The camera records in the efficient AVCHD (H.264) format that provides ample recording time on 4GB of internal flash memory rather than requiring a larger hard drive; an SDHC slot provides room for at least an extra 8GB of storage.

The Korean company additionally promises a widescreen swiveling LCD and a quick-start function that goes from a cold start to full capture mode in just three seconds. No word has been received as to pricing or whether the HMX10 will be available outside of Europe, but an international launch is expected with a first release due in October.
