Samsung camcorder records HD video and still images
The Samsung HMX-U20 comes fully equipped with high-performing 1/2.3 inch CMOS sensors which help capture stunning, 1920x1080 full HD resolution video (30p / H.264). In addition, the ultra compact Samsung U20 also boasts impressive digital still image capability. With the Samsung HMX U20, consumers can capture 10 megapixel digital still images. This impressive digital still capability eliminates the need for consumers to carry a separate digital camera as everything they’ll need is in one, ultra-compact device. The camcorders also include Hyper Digital Image Stabilization to help produce blur-free video and the Samsung HMX U20 adds even more versatility with a true 3x optical zoom.

Samsung camcorder features time-lapse recording
Consumers can also get creative with their video thanks to fun and unique features such as time lapse recording, which allows users to program the camcorder to record at a pre-set interval of one image every one, five, 10 or 30 seconds. Time lapse recording is especially useful for condensing extremely long events, such as rolling clouds on a sunny day, into a short, easy to-view video.

Samsung HD camcorder with USB connection
The Samsung HMX-U20’s built-in, swing-out style USB connection gives users the ability to forego having to always carry a separate USB cable to connect and upload footage to a computer. The built-in USB connection can also recharge the camcorder’s battery, eliminating the need to transport a separate charger while on-the-go. Furthermore, the Samsung HMX-U20 camcorder offers HDMI connectivity, allowing consumers to enjoy their full HD video on their HDTV.

Share your videos with the Samsung HMX-U20
The Samsung HMX-U20 also features Samsung’s play edit sharing program, called intelli studio. This intuitive program allows consumers to turn any computer into a mobile studio, giving them the ability to edit and play their video without having to install supporting software. Sharing is also simplified thanks to a one-touch “upload” button on the Samsung U20. When connected to a computer with an internet connection, the one-touch “upload” button links directly to popular destinations such as YouTube, reducing the number of steps needed to upload footage to content sharing Web sites.

Extremely portable Samsung HD camcorder
The Samsung HMX-U20 HD camcorder is extremely portable with dimensions of just 2.1” x .61” x 4.09”. In addition to its compact size, the HMX-U20 is also highlighted by a unique design that’s as ergonomic as it is stylish. Designed to make the camcorder more comfortable to hold, the camcorders’ bodies is angled at seven degrees which encourages a more natural grip reducing overall stress on the user’s wrist and arm.

The PMA show, or Photo Marketing Association, continues its yearly tradition of maintaining a network of photo imaging as well as the experience and know-how of the industry. The PMA represents 20,000 members from over 100 countries, who are all active within the imaging industry. As a reflection of the changes in the market, the PMA organization has also changed and has become more diverse. Nowadays, the member group consists of representatives coming from photo retail, manufacturers, commercial photo labs, professional sports and news photography, in addition to small album print suppliers and photo processing centers. The PMA 2012 Trade show focuses on an industry which is heavily affected by the unstable situation of the global financial economy. However, whether the latter will also stand in the way of the innovation and product introductions, remains to be revealed by the PMA International Convention & Trade Show in Anaheim Convention Center (California, US).
