Samsung HMX-R10 First Impressions Camcorder Review

The Samsung HMX-R10 is creating quite a stir among gadget lovers for its unique sloping lens and curvilinear design.



At the heart of this new camcorder is a new grip: the angled lens means that you hold the camcorder at an angle that's more comfortable for your wrist. But there are some interesting features under the hood too: an enormous 1/2.33-inch, high resolution sensor, a bevvy of still photography features, and the same elegantly intuitive menu system and manual controls that Samsung featured in last year's lineup.
