Something to take to South Africa?

Mobile application security vulnerability report

Samsung has introduced a quartet of HD camcorders, all equipped with a 3.32Mp sensor, a 37mm wide-angle lens and a 20x optical zoom facility.

Actually, almost all of the four cameras' specs are identical. What differentiates the models is the amount of on-board memory which, in every case, can be expanded with SDHC cards, Samsung said.

So, the HMX-H200 has no built-in storage, the HMX-H203 has 8GB, the HMX-H204 has 16GB and the HMX-H205 has 32GB.

All four film in the H.264 format at resolutions running from 480p up to 1080i, in either 60f/s or 60 fields per second. There's a time-lapse mode, which shoots at 720p.

Footage can be viewed on the cameras' 2.7in touchscreen LCD, or on an HD TV through their HDMI port.
