HD Camcorder With Storage to Spare

Techstination feature for Thursday, April 23, 2009

An HD camcorder with storage to spare. I'm Fred Fishkin with technology Boot Camp, a report on gadgets and gear. Lots of video camera makers are offering models that use what they call solid state drives...using flash memory instead of hard drives or tapes. The advantage is solid state drives have no moving parts....making them more reliable and efficient. But getting enough solid state capacity into the camera at an affordable price...has been issue. Samsung is coming out with camcorders designed to overcome those issues. Product manager Darryl Cole...

"We will have a 64 gig SSD flash memory drive in the H106. That'll give you 12 hours of full HD recording. We also have a 32 gig option for 6 hours of recording and a 16 gig option for 3 hours of recording. They all have optical image stabilizers. They all have Schneider lenses."

The top of the line 64 gig H106...will be priced at just under a thousand dollars. You can find us at I'm Fred Fishkin.
