About this item

The Samsung HMX-U20 Camcorder (Blue) provides you with 1920 x 1080p high definition recording and 10MP still image capture. And whether you're capturing video or still images the U20 records to SD/SDHC memory cards. In addition to recording functions the camcorder also features an ergonomic design that lessens strain - from your wrist all the way to your back. This comfortable 7-degree shape allows for longer shooting and less fatigue.

The U20 has a 1/2.3" CMOS sensor at its heart that's helped along by 3x optical zoom, a 2" LCD display and HDIS image stabilization. When it comes to sharing on the big screen the camera features a Component output for your HDTV and a Composite output for analog televisions.

Animated Thumbnail, Time-Lapse Recording and Intelli-Studio software all enhance your recording and sharing experience as well. Other important features include HMX-U20's compatibility with Windows and Mac, a built-in USB arm and one touch upload to social networking sites.
