With the advent of consumer camcorders people everywhere are creating video. Be it family moments to movies by budding film makers. One problem does arise is how to get that video onto the computer quickly and painlessly as possible. With most camcorders the video has to be transferred from the camcorder and encoded to the computer in a lengthy process.
Today we take a look at a new Camcorder from Samsung the SC-MX10, which completely eliminates the need to use the old method of transfer and encodes the video in a usable format right away, and can be easily downloaded off the camcorder for use.
One of the first things you notice about the MX10 is how it doesn't quite look like a camcorder to begin with. Most of it has to do with the total absence of a view finder. Which is all fine and good as i can't remember when i used a view finder anyways on any modern camcorder. I've always used the LCD screen in stead.
When it comes to accessories we have included with the SC-MX10, a power adapter, RCA cable, camera strap, camera bag, lens cap and instruction booklet.
Video is recorded in the popular MPEG4 format and is stored on the MX10 in the form of SD cards which also includes the new SDHC cards as well. There are three resolutions you can record in 720 x 480 interlaced , 720 x 480 progressive and 352 x 240 progressive.
The use of MPEG4 video recording allows you to record high quality video at extremely small file sizes. In fact, because MPEG4 is quickly becoming the standard for online videos, many websites also support direct uploading of the MX10ís videos.
