Asia: Samsung HD Flash Cam Goes Slo-mo
Samsung’s newest HD flash camcorder (model SC-HMX20C)
for consumers should start hitting store shelves this month in South Korea and soon thereafter in North America and Europe. The tiny device will record 300 fps to a flash drive, allowing recording in slow-motion (at least for up to 10 seconds). The cam normally records 1080p at 30 fps.
Samsung also said the camera can capture still images up to 8 megapixels. The SC-HMX20C features a pop-up flash unit (as in lighting, not memory). The flash memory technology (no moving parts, like disc) was designed to allow for quicker start-up and lower rate of battery consumption.
HDMI and USB connectivity allows for playback on an HD television set or PC.
