The Samsung HMX-U20 is one of two 1080p HD pocket camcorders release in Spring 2010. The U20 builds from the U15 by incorporating an improved 3x optical zoom, as well as a more compact and portable design. However, the HMX-U20 is restricted to 10MP still shots (versus 14MP). Like its predecessor, the Samsung HMX-U20 supports H.264 video formats at 30fps, Hyper Digital Image Stabilization, and one-touch uploads to YouTube. Include also is an HDMI out for transmitting to a compatible HDTV set; a high-performing 1/2.3” CMOS sensor; and a swing-out USB connection that can also recharge the camcorder’s battery. It too features Samsung’s play-edit-sharing program (Intelli-Studio) for playing their videos on any computer.
