Samsung SMX-K40: Near HDTV Quality at an Affordable Price

Samsung SMX-K40 digital camcorder with HD upscale

Samsung has recently released a new line of interesting HD camcorders, but for those who want to have high definition videos without suffering your savings, the company has just the right camcorder for you.

The Samsung SMX-K40 lets you record videos in standard definition-which is 720 x 480 pixels-but these clips can get a "HD upscale" when viewing through a high-definition monitor using a HDMI output (cable sold separately).  Now you can enjoy videos that are almost at full-HD quality for the price of a standard camcorder.

Another highlight that would make us love the Samsung SMX-K40 is its 65x Intelli-Zoom lens, one of the most powerful zoom lenses that Samsung can offer.  This lets you capture any moment no matter how far away they may be.  And unlike ordinary digital zoom lenses that negatively affect the quality of the image, the Intelli-Zoom lens allows you to go beyond the standard 52x optical zoom.  You can also be assured that your videos are recorded with high quality with Samsung’s advanced Optical Image Stabilizer, making your videos shake-free at any zoom distance.

Other great features of this amazingly affordable camcorder includes a 2.7-inch LCD monitor, a built-in intelli-studio program that lets you upload videos on YouTube with just one touch, basic on-camera editing, AC adapter and USB connection that give you dual charging options, and an animated thumbnail feature that simplifies the way you search for video clips.  The SMX-K40 may not have internal store, but your videos are saved through a SD or SDHC card.

The Samsung SMX-K40 will be available in August for only US$329.99.
