With its 3 sec quick start, compact and light size, durability and low power consumption and uber-chic design, the new SAMSUNG MX10 Memory Cam will be the first camcorder you'll want to use all the time. Walk into a closet, and chances are, you'll find a camcorder buried way in the back. Now, imagine a camcorder so compact and stylish that you didn't have to hide it. Imagine a camcorder that lets you easily upload your videos to your favorite online video service, or email to family and friends. With SAMSUNG's MX10 Memory Cam, it's not that hard to imagine.
Wading into a crowding camcorder market at US$215-$250, this solid state camcorder is coming in at a rather affordable price. But mind you, it doesn't have any onboard memory and additional memory to use it will be necessary.
First out is your usual user's manual along with the warranty and helpline registration paperwork. But also included is a full version of DVD Suite from Cyberlink. This essentially allows you to burn your solid state recorded content onto a DVD for archiving or viewing.
Next out is the hardware kit which includes a soft carrying pouch, an AC adapter, a USB cable, a composite A/V cable, a len's cap w/ lanyard, a battery, a lithium ion battery to keep the camcorder's memory. Nothing is missing other than some actual memory to use the camcorder right out of the box.
And last out is your actual camcorder. Just as a size reference, I took a photo of it beside a standard nine volt battery. As you can see, this is one compact camcorder which weighs in at only 9.92oz / 281grams. Anyone complaining about carrying this camcorder needs to get into the gym and do some weight training. I have digital cameras that weigh more.
