The Samsung HMX-Q20 HD Flash Camcorder (Black) is Samsung's brand new full HD high-technology compact camcorder with very intuitive functionality.

Samsung's CMOS sensors are getting yet better and better every year. The Q20's 5 megapixel backside-illuminated CMOS sensor is 1/4.1" large and is designed to increase the amount of light captured during recording. It thus achieves high-quality capture in low-light conditions.

And the Q20 captures in full HD at 1080i and 720p resolutions, whichever of the two works better for you. The footage gets stored on SD memory cards which you can very conveniently load into your computer once you're ready to see your footage on a big screen.

Additionally, as you're shooting, feel free to switch to stills mode and shoot very crisp 5.3 megapixel still photos that save in JPEG format which will load into your computer just as conveniently as the video you shoot.

The Q20 is equipped with a Schneider-Kreuznach Varioplan-HD lens capable of 20x optical zoom, which magnifies the entire scene before you while preserving much of its color, brightness and overall quality. Additionally, the lens functions with a fast aperture of f/1.8 which only enhances the excellent low-light performance of the sensor.

As for some of the intuitive functions -- the Q20 features Samsung's innovative Switch Grip technology, which feels out whether you're using your left or right hand and adjusts the LCD display accordingly so you can better control recording settings. And the LCD display itself features Samsung's Smart-Touch technology, which allows icons on the 2.7" touch-screen display to be dragged and dropped.

5MP BSI CMOS super low light sensor
The Q20 5-megapixel Backside-Illuminated CMOS super low light sensor is 1/4.1" large and is designed to increase the amount of light captured during recording. It thus achieves high-quality capture in low-light conditions.
HD Capture and Recording
The Q20 captures HD at 1080 and 720 resolutions. You can select the 1080 resolution for top quality or the 720 for longer recording time. The footage gets stored on an SD memory card which can conveniently be off-loaded into your computer.
Crisp Still Photos
As you're shooting, feel free to switch to stills mode and shoot very crisp 5.3 megapixel still photos that save in JPEG format which will load into your computer just as conveniently as the video you shoot.
Wide Lens with 20x Optical Zoom and OIS Duo
The Q20 is equipped with a Schneider-Kreuznach Varioplan-HD 29.6mm wide angle lens capable of 20x optical zoom, which magnifies deep into the scene before you while preserving the quality of object that ends up in focus.

Additionally, the lens functions with a fast aperture of f/1.8 which only enhances the excellent low-light performance of the sensor.

And moreover, the Q20 features Dual Optical Image Stabilization, which is a hardware-based technology that ensures smooth shoots by compensating for any shakes that the camera detects.
2.7" Touch Screen LCD with Switch Grip
The 2.7" LCD of the Q20 features Samsung's Smart-Touch technology via which icons on the display are handled in drag-and-drop operation.

Also, the Q20 features Samsung's innovative Switch Grip technology, which senses whether you're using your left or right hand and adjusts the LCD display accordingly so you can better control recording settings.
Intelli-Studio 3.0
Built-in advanced editing software gives you the freedom to play, edit and share files on any PC. Intelli-Studio even starts up automatically. Simply plug into any PC via the USB input.
Art Movie Function
The Art Movie function consists of creative capture features that achieve special effects.
Time-Lapse Recording via which still frames are taken at preset intervals and put together in sequential order to create a video file that speeds up the slow passage of time.
The Record Pause Function lets you briefly pause while recording, yet still create one continuous file for easy uploading to social networking sites. No more need to merge separate files for editing before uploading.
Smart BGM 2 is Samsung's second version of its Smart Background Music feature which allows you to add music to your movies during playback without overwhelming the words. The Smart Background Music feature lets you add one of the preloaded soundtracks to your video. If the system senses someone is speaking, it automatically lowers the volume of the music.

    Comments about Samsung HMX-Q20 HD Flash Camcorder (Black):

    I bought this camcorder in order to record my new born baby. It is very easy to use and the image quality is okey for this price. The only thing I don't like is the zooming. It is a little bit limited when I use it outdoors. However, it is enough to record all my baby's activities.
