The Samsung SMX-K40 is a compact up-scaling HDMI camcorder offered by Samsung. It has a 52x optical zoom that can go up to 65x digitally with Samsung's new Intelli-Zoom and features and optical image stabilizer for clear images, even when zoomed in. It can record video with a resolution of 720 x 480 which can be viewed on an HDTV in near-HD quality thanks to an advanced upscaling HDMI output. There is no internal memory storage and it stores all content to a SD/SDHC card. It features Samsung’s play-edit-sharing program called intelli studio which lets you use any computer to edit and play videos with no software installation, and simplifies the process to upload content to websites such as YouTube. For easy browsing on the camera, each video is represented by a small thumbnail with short playback when highlighted. The battery can be charges using a USB connection or with the supplied AC adapter. The Samsung SMX-K40 is available in black, silver or blue.
