The Samsung HMX-Q20BN HD Flash Camcorder (Black) is full HD high-technology compact camcorder with very intuitive functionality. Samsung's CMOS sensors are getting yet better and better every year. The QF20'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.
One reason why the Samsung HMX-Q20BN is popular is because of its Lightweight
