The new Samsung digital camcorder, knows as SMX-C20, has an ergonomic
design and includes a mix of style, comfort and technology which allows
you to capture memorable moments of your life and share them over the
Internet with a single touch.
Samsung SMX-C20 consists of an built-in lenses with an Active angle of
25 degrees of inclination. It has inherited this conception from SMX-C10
and HMX-R10 cameras. According to Samsung, this lens makes it possible
to hold the camera in a more natural position, which reduces the overall
load on the wrist and elbow. In addition, the LCD screen is out of
sight and allows the user to concentrate on his subject.
Samsung knows that they need a hook to sell these devices, and with its
SMX-C20 model they are deviating from the traditional aspect of
camcorder. The result is a comfortable and ergonomic design which
Samsung claims is ideal for long recordings.
The Samsung SMX-C20 ultra-compact camcorder consists of an LCD screen
with a resolution of 720 x 480 pixels for outstanding video recording
standard definition, which allows users to take still images with a
resolution of 2 megapixel. The unit also supports H.264 compression
offering longer recording time period over typical MPEG2 format. It
allows users to get closer to the action regardless of the subject’s
distance with its 10x optical zoom feature.
Design is not enough to make a consumer camcorder, and the C20 has a lot
of competition from other devices in the same $200 (MSRP) price range,
including standard-definition models from Sony and Panasonic in addition
to the ever-growing pocket HD camcorder lineup. With this review you
can easily find out how the SMX-C20 performed in my two weeks of
testing, and if its features and modes make up its relatively low
There are two models of SMX-C, the C20 and the C24. The C20 is available
in red and purple and requires an SD or SDHC card up to 32 GB. The C24
is available only in black and has a 16 GB solid state drive (SSD).
The SSD defines the current crop of Samsung SD and HD camcorders. SSDs
are smaller, lighter, faster, more reliable and consume less energy than
conventional hard drives. When compared to SD cards, SSDs are generally
faster to access data. If Samsung C20 were smaller, it can compete with
handheld camcorders more compact. It measures 1.39 x 2.21 x 4.29 inches
and weighs about 5 ounces. It is easy to take and I could almost
completely wrapped my hand around the device.
The front of the C20 houses the lens, which is at an angle of 25 degrees
upward from the rest of the body. On the back is the record button,
charging LED, and the cover hides the USB connector, DC-in jack, AV
input, SD/SDHC slot, and a removable rechargeable battery. On the palm
side is bare sans of wrist strap hook, and the 2.7-inch LCD swivels out
from the opposite side. LCD opens up 90 degrees and rotates 180. Below
