New Samsung SMX-C10 Offers Industry-Leading Style, Design and Ease-of-Use

30th April 2009 – Samsung, leaders in innovation and digital imaging, today extended its family of digital camcorders announcing the launch of the SMX-C10, the new ergonomically designed, compact digital camcorder offering industry leading style and design.

The new SMX-C10 features Samsung’s stylish design with a touch of colour that was first introduced in the company’s flat panel HDTVs. With a touch of colour design, a hint of colour is naturally blended into a deep black body for an attractive appearance.

The SMX-C10 is ideal for the on-the-go consumer and offers an impressive 10x optical zoom paired with Hyper Image Stabilization, a feature which helps reduce blurry footage. The SMX-C10 also uses a 230,000-dot, swivelling 2.7-inch wide LCD screen, allowing you to effortlessly frame your subjects and review your footage.

Similar to the full-HD HMX-R10, the new SMX-C10 boasts Samsung’s Active Angle Lens. This unique design helps reduce fatigue by allowing consumers to grip the camcorder in a more relaxed manner, easing the overall stress on your wrist and elbow. Unlike traditional camcorders, the relaxed grip also removes the LCD screen from your line of sight, enabling you to always keep an eye on your subject while recording.

The SMX-C10 also incorporates Samsung’s play-edit-sharing program called intelli studio. The built-in intelli-studio program allows consumers to connect the camcorder to any computer via USB and edit and play your video without having to install supporting software. Intelli-studio also facilitates the process of uploading your content to popular video sharing Web sites and for convenience, a one-touch “upload” button provides a direct connection to YouTubeT, further reducing the number of steps needed to upload footage. In addition, the camcorder also allows basic on-camera editing, including the ability to merge and split video files.

"The SMX-C10 is a truly unique camcorder, starting with its eye-catching design,” said Paul Scott, Camcorder Product Manager at Samsung Electronics.

“With its ultra-compact, ergonomic and stylish design, the camcorder offers a host of advanced, yet easy-to-use capabilities that encourage you to integrate video recording into your everyday digital lifestyles.”

Thanks to H.264 compression, which drastically enhances recording times when used with standard definition video, you can record over three hours of high quality video footage on the 8GB card. In addition, the SMX-C10 also offers substantial battery life providing more than two hours and 40 minutes of record time on a single charge.

Samsung also enhances the video recording experience for end-users thanks to several unique features, including time-lapse recording, animated thumbnails and a versatile charging system. Time-lapse recording allows you to program the camcorder to record at a pre-set interval of one image every one, three, five, 10, 15 or 30 seconds. Time-lapse recording is especially useful for condensing extremely long events, such as rolling clouds on a sunny day, into a short, easy to-view video.

Samsung’s animated thumbnail feature simplifies the way you search for video clips. Each video clip saved on the camcorder is represented by a small thumbnail on the LCD screen. When scrolling through one’s videos, each thumbnail will provide a short playback of the video file when highlighted. The SMX-C10 also features a versatile charging system; you can either recharge the battery by connecting the camcorder to the supplied AC adapter or via USB while the camcorder is connected to a computer.

The SMX-C10 will be available from leading high street and online retailers from May 2009. Customers requiring further information should call 0845 726 7864 or visit
