SAMSUNG PERFECT 10
THIS A GOOD BUY AND IT’S LOW MAINTENANCE
Samsung’s perfect 10
Samsung’s late to the game of Flip-style (read: simple, cheap, tiny, genius) pocket camcorders, but with its just-announced HMX-U10, the company is making up for lost time. High-def 1080p resolution (vs. the industry standard of 720p) and a 10MP still camera trump most anything on the market at the moment; the other features, like fixed-focus lens, expandable SD storage, and a button for instant uploading to YouTube, are squarely in line with the rest of the pack. And if this is all ye know, this is all ye need to know: The thing’s easy enough to operate that an 8-year-old or an 80-year-old can handle it with aplomb. If, that is, they can pry it out of your hands.
Around $200; ships in September; samsung.com
