SSD Comes To Samsung Handycam

Samsung decides that Solid State Drives are the next big thing in camcorders

Samsung’s newest camcorder is offering solid state drive (SSD) as its memory, which has 32GB of memory and allows for a lot of recording time with 1080p, according to the company.

With an SSD, the HMX-H105 SSD operates silently with minimal heat emission and features no moving parts; reducing power use and making the camcorder more durable and shock-resistant compared with hard disc drive (HDD) or removable memory options, claims Samsung. SSD is also said to offer fast boot-up and playback and record speeds than HDD.

In addition to the 32GB memory, the unit offers the ability to record Full HD – providing the ability to record memories in 1080p. Amateur filmmakers will be able to premier their video recording skills, by showcasing their work with unprecedented ease on Full HD TVs. The camcorder supports HDMI input, eliminating the need for docking stations and ensures a seamless interplay between the camcorder and the television.

Featuring a wide angle focal length Schneider lens, the HMX-H105 allows users to fit more scenery into each frame. The camcorder also provides a HD Time Lapse recording mode that lets you record a single image at a pre-selected interval and will save each image as one single movie file. Additionally, the camcorder can capture 4.7 megapixel digital still photos. With the same sensor as many dedicated digital still cameras, the inbuilt CMOS sensor produces superlative results in still images in addition to videos.
