Samsung HMX-R10 Camcorder Review
The Samsung HMX-R10 doesn't feel or look like an ordinary camcorder. On the surface, it boasts a compact design, rounded edges, and a unique, tilted lens that angles roughly 25-degrees higher than the rest of the camcorder. Inside, it has a huge 1/2.33-inch CMOS sensor, Full HD capability, and a 9-megapixel still image capability—the same specs as the GZ-X900, the top-line model from JVC. With an MSRP of just $499, the Samsung HMX-R10 is a compelling choice for a mid-range camcorder, and it is one of the most intriguing video/photo hybrid devices we've seen this year.
The Samsung HMX-R10 records video to SD/SDHC memory cards and is currently available in either silver or black.
