Features

The HMX-U10 is an ultra compact camcorder that records in full-HD and takes 10 mega-pixel still photos. It also allows users to share content online with its one-touch “upload” button to YouTube™. The HMX-U10 is targeted at the consumer looking for portability in a HD camcorder. It offers full-HD video recording with 1920 x 1080 resolution with its 1/2.3 inch CMOS sensor that also supports 10 mega-pixel digital still images capture. This can all be reviewed on the camcorder’s two-inch LCD screen. The camcorder measures 56 mm x 103 mm x 15.5 mm and weighs 95 g including the battery. The HMX-U10 features Samsung’s built-in intelli-studio software, which is Samsung’s play-edit-sharing program that allows users to edit and play their video without having to install supporting software.

The camcorder also allows basic on-camera editing, including the ability to split video files. The camcorder also features Samsung’s animated thumbnail feature that provides a way for users search for video clips. Each video clip saved on the camcorder is represented by a small thumbnail on the LCD screen which provides a short playback of the video when highlighted by a user as they scroll through the videos. The HMX-U10 also features a versatile charging system that lets users recharge the battery by either connecting the camcorder to the supplied AC adapter or via USB while the camcorder is connected to a computer.

  • HMX-U10 vs Mac

    How does the HMX-U10 fare with a Mac? Anybody tried it? I'm not looking for a great camera, just something I can throw around, record stuff with and take out when I'm with friends, instead of taking my DSLR everywhere. Thanks!

    Answered by fbretschneider 2011-01-21:

    I use only Macs, and had no problem wing and handling the files (photo's are JPEG, movies are MP4 (Mpeg-4 video with H264 encoding). Photoshop and Quicktime Player respectively can handle these formats. f.bretschneider@xs4all.nl
