CES 2011

Kicking off a new year and one of the biggest weeks in the tech industry, Samsung has introduced the HMX-Q10 full HD, compact camcorder sporting a BSI CMOS sensor.

Targeted towards "everyone," the Q10 video camera uses an "Easy Operation and Smart Access" user interface, making the camcorder more intuitive and easy-to-use when shooting up to 1080p video clips or 4.9-megapixel stills.

Samsung has also incorporated Switch Grip technology for the swiveling 2.7-inch LCD panel, which includes a G-magnetic sensor that ensures that the camcorder recognizes the angle and shifts the display automatically.

Other notable specs on this Samsung camcorder include the Schneider-Kreuznach Varioplan-HD F1.8 lens with 10x optical zoom, Optical Image Stabilization, USB and HDMI connectivity.

The HMX-Q10 camcorder will retail for $299 when it launches this February.
