Samsung's HMX-U10 tries to 'out-flip' the pocket video competition with full HD
Rating
Overall:

Ever since the Flip introduced a new catagory into the video camera market, other companies have been chasing similar designs. Is Samsung's any better?

Pocket video cameras have come a long way since the early VGA Flip models, as demonstrated by the Samsung HMX-U10.

It's the first we've seen to sport Full HD video recording (1920 x 1080 at 30fps), and quality is pretty impressive.

Even in low light, noise is controlled reasonably well, and in better conditions colours are balanced and well presented.

There's also a smooth 720p 60fps mode, time-lapse recording, 10-megapixel stills capability, and a handful of scene presets. It's the most capable pocket video camera to date and is priced attractively too.

Alas, using it is frustrating: both physical and touch-sensitive controls are fiddly, and the screen is dim with poor viewing angles. We still prefer the Flip Mino HD
