Samsung HMX U10 Pocket Cam
Samsung as part of its camera launches today jumped into the pocket camcorder realm normally dominated by Pure Digital. The HMX-U10 has a much higher resolution sensor and shoots 1080i widescreen video in H.264 as well as 10-megapixel still images. It also has direct YouTube uploading support and the option of recording time-lapse videos through a succession of stills.
To bring the price in check with rivals like the Flip Ultra HD, Samsung depends only on SDHC cards for storage and doesn't include digital zoom. Shipments begin in September at a price of $200.
