Samsung Unveils New SC-MX20 YouTube-Ready Camcorder

Samsung SC-MX20 YouTube-Ready Camcorder

This is the new Samsung SC-MX20 compact camcorder which features a customized recording mode optimized for YouTube, so you shoot and then upload – no need for video editing software if you’re not that fussy.

Samsung says the new video camera uses a high-performance 680K pixel CCD sensor which delivers a resolution of 720×480, stunning colors and all. It features a powerful Schneider lens with 34x optical zoom and advanced noise reduction (3-D Noise Reduction) technology to provide superb video quality, the company adds. Image stabilization and face detection thrown in for free.

The SC-MX20 features a slot for SD/SDHC (up to 32GB) and MMC+ memory cards and utilizes H.264 compression for longer record times and enhanced video quality. Samsung’s H.264 technology more than doubles the compression ratio so that it takes less time to send video files via email or upload them onto the Internet, according to the company announcement.

The SC-MX20 will be available in August 2008 with an estimated selling price of $280.
