Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., a global leader in consumer electronics and digital technology, introduces a new series of easy-to-use and stylish camcorders all of which are as impressive to use as they are to look at. While each camcorder comes equipped with its own unique characteristics, they all share three key features: flash memory, easy-to-use functionality and stylish design. And each one of these features was specifically designed with the consumer in mind. Through years of research and development, Samsung has gained the innate ability to get into the minds of the consumer in order to anticipate their ever-changing needs. To that end, user-friendly features such as Quick Start Recording and Easy Editing which are unique to flash memory make the new camcorders unlike any others on the market today. Plus, with all the additional features and accessories-Docking Cradle (available in HMX10 & MX10), built-in DVD-burning capabilities (available in DX10), Unique Swivel Grip, and 2.7 LCD screens-these new Samsung camcorders are attractive to even the most demanding individual. The new HMX10 is the smallest and lightest HD progressive camcorder available in the market. Although compact in size, the HMX10 delivers the amazing HD picture quality resolution available. With its true 60 fps (NTSC) / 50 fps (PAL) progressive HD video, watching your favorite videos on an HDTV will never be the same again. The H.264 HD Video CODEC helps to compress large amounts of data so that your HD videos can be stored within the built-in flash memory. Plus, the HMX10 has HDMI CEC (Anynet+) cable which makes for easy installation and control delivering superb audio & video quality, with minimal data loss. But that s just half of the story. Samsung did not design these products inside of a vacuum. Having taken their cues from real-life human behavior, Samsung has put themselves into the shoes of the consumer. Case in point, the compact design of the new Digital camcorders weighs noticeably less than the competition, making them easy to carry around. The compact design also allows for easy storage and packing for long trips. And because they utilize flash memory, the camcorders have a minimal amount of moving parts so they are less likely to become damaged from everyday effects like bumps, drops and knocks. imagine memories made stylishly simple Flash Memory Meet the new series of camcorders from Samsung.

Flash memory also helps to increase the efficiency of data movement so that means you won t have to worry about the battery running out before you re able to capture life s precious moments. When it comes to recording time, the large-capacity flash memory makes sure there s plenty of room for your video. With standard DVD camcorders, they usually allow an average of 20 minutes of recording time. With a camcorder like the MX10, its 4GB flash memory can record up to two hours of video. Plus, the expandable memory card slot provides the option to increase the available memory even more. The camcorders compact and light-weight design makes it easy to transport and the inherent characteristics of flash memory makes it resistant to long-term damage as a result of normal wear-and-tear. In addition, since the flash memory does not contain any moving parts, it will not get scratched like a CD/DVD so your videos are less likely to be compromised or damaged. HMX10 imagine memories made stylishly simple imagine memories made stylishly simple Easy-to-Use Features For Samsung, usability is paramount when it comes to product design. The camcorders easy-to-use features allow even a novice to take advantage of the highperformance capabilities. For example, the new Easy Editing feature allows you to easily split the video file at any point you want or paste two video files together without ever having to downloading the files from the camcorder. If there are some sections of the video you don t want to keep, simply cut them out and paste the rest of the video back together. And that s not all.

The F1.6 bright lens setting allows for more light to be delivered to the light sensor so images are brighter with less noise. Unlike standard spherical lens, the aspherical lens minimizes distortion and is much smaller and lighter. The lens also minimizes chromatic aberrations and provides a higher resolution and delivers superior contrast. Plus, the advanced multi-layer coating enhances the contrast and enlivens color. It also reduces flaring and ghosting of images. Finally, the convenience of the Docking Cradle puts Samsung s new camcorders head and shoulders above the competition. The Cradle allows you to recharge the camcorder, use the built-in USB port and connect to your PC and other AV devicesall at the same time! (available in HMX10 & MX10). In addition, Samsung s Emo-Sync feature allows for quick and easy data transfer from your camcorder to a PC. Simply connect the camcorder to a PC with a USB cable. Once the two devices are connected, Samsung Media Studio auto detects the camcorder & copies all the newly recorded files from the camcorder to a designated folder on the PC. It updates the file name, size and the recording date of each file being transferred to the PC. All this with the minimum number of steps for the entire process.

When the camcorder displays the remaining battery on the screen, i-Check recalls the stored data of the electric power and calculates the time available for functions such as recording, playback and standby. DX10 DX10 imagine memories made stylishly simple Trend-setting Ergonomic Design While most of our competitors are focused solely on functionality, Samsung is just as concerned about aesthetics. Our designers look beyond the technology industry and study the trends in other areas, such as fashion and even automobiles, to better inform the final product. It s this delicate combination of form and function that pushes Samsung s Swivel Grip camcorders past the competition. Beyond superior technology, the new series of Samsung camcorders offers a study in sleek elegance. Each camcorder has been carefully designed to fit comfortably in a person s hand while not sacrificing its aesthetic appeal. The unique Swivel grip-able to rotate an amazing 135 degrees-provides an easy way for consumers to not only hold the camcorder but to also shoot video at very low or high angles. Its ergonomic design sits comfortably in the palm of the consumer while allowing them to take videos in a wide array of shooting angles. The DX10 also comes equipped with the Dual Zoom and REC button. This value-added feature allows consumers to start/stop recording as well as zoom in/out by using either buttons located on top like convention camcorders for normal recording angles or the same functions through the second set of similar buttons located at the very front of the camcorder just at your fingertip. This is particularly useful when you re shooting lower angle videos and do not want to disturb the shot. The camcorders also contain design elements that are not so obvious at first glance. The 2.7 , high-resolution LCD screen requires only the touch of a finger to be operated (available in HMX10 & DX10 ). Plus, with an intuitive user interface, animated graphics and sound prompts, the consumer will never miss those confusing buttons found on other camcorders. We re confident enough in our design and functionality that we don t have to confuse the consumer with complicated technology or overload them with features they don t need. All of our camcorders were designed with one thing in mind : the consumer. Because, at the end of the day, it s all about them and how comfortable they are using our camcorders.
