Samsung readies SDHC HD camcorders

Something to take to South Africa?

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.

Samsung didn't indicate how much these camcorders will cost, but they'll be released in June, just in time for folks travelling to see the World Cup in South Africa. ®
