SAMSUNG’S Next-Generation Mini-DV Camcorders Are Small In Size, Big On Features

Ridgefield Park, NJ - Samsung an award winning leader in camcorder innovation, gives consumers, along with their friends and family, memories to smile at with the new line of Mini-DV Camcorders that offer superior picture, a host of new features, and a "palmprint" that is 15% smaller than last year's models. Two new Mini-DV Compact models and a new Mini-DV Mega Pixel model offer Samsung's latest usability enhancements along with high optical zoom for superior picture in a tiny camcorder.

"Samsung's 2006 compact Mini-DV Camcorders represent an innovative combination of form and function," said Aaron Novak, marketing manager for camcorders, Samsung Electronics America. "The ultra-compact design combines convenience, elegance and portability with high-quality image capture and an array of new feature enhancements designed to provide consumers with the ultimate value-rich camcorders."

Mini-DV Compact

Samsung's SC-D365 and SC-D363 Mini-DV Compact camcorders both feature a 680k pixel CCD for superior quality picture in a small package. MPEG4 recording, webcam capability, and 800x600 still image capture keeps these camcorders a cut above in
versatility and convenience; USB 2.0 and PictBridge™ technology make file transfer a snap.

The step-up SC-D365 adds a 33x optical zoom and a versatile four-in-one multi-memory card slot that handles most major formats, including SD Card, MMC Card, Memory Stick or Memory Stick Pro storage. The 2.7" wide LCD (230K) and color viewfinder make it even easier to set up the perfect angle. This model also offers an LED video light, analog input and remote control.

The SC-D363 features a 30x optical/1200x digital zoom with a 2.5" LCD, color viewfinder, SD/MMC slot and USB 2.0 compatibility for speedy transfers of digital video files to a PC.

Mini-DV Mega Pixel

Samsung's SC-D963 Mini-DV Mega Pixel camcorder features a 1.1 MegaPixel CCD with 26x optical zoom. The SC-D963 features a 2.5" LCD color viewfinder, SD/MMC slot and 32MB built-in memory.

The Mini-DV Mega camcorders feature true Samsung flexibility with 1152 x 864 digital still image capture, MPEG4 video recording and webcam capability. The versatile camcorder also offers USB 2.0 connectivity and PictBridge technology for fast, easy file transfer.

All of Samsung's 2006 Mini-DV camcorder models feature the company's latest functionality enhancements. Topping the list is true 16:9 wide mode that captures the action in breathtaking cinema format, and when displayed on a digital TV through the Samsung camcorder, plays your footage without image distortion.

New recording and playback features also enhance the home video experience. For recording, Wind Cut Plus lets users keep original sound and cut only background wind noise, while the Stereo Enhancement feature creates a vivid divide between right and
left channels for a stereo sound field effect. Playback audio effects allow users to focus audio playback on the human voice, music or sound direction, and add echo effects. An advanced GUI provides easy navigation of camera functions and the upgraded battery information provides detailed status so you know when the power is low.

The SC-D363 is available for a MAP of $299.99; SC-D365 at a MAP of $349.99; SC-D963 for an MAP of $399.99.
