180 Degrees of HD Sharing

Introducing the new Samsung QF30 wireless enabled camcorder that lets you shoot full HD video from any angle and share footage at the same time with Ustream.

Image Description

Ustream

Can’t wait to share an amazing moment- Now you don’t have to. Live Broadcasting lets you broadcast your recording-while you’re recording via Ustream. Friends and family can see what you see on their laptops, tablets, or smartphones in real time, without having to wait for you to upload your video.*

Image Description

Wi-Fi

Send quality video directly from the camcorder to social networks like Youtube and Facebook. You can also use Auto Backup to transfer and store your video to your PC with the touch of a button. Transfer images and videos wirelessly from the QF20 on your home TV with AllShare.

Image Description

HD Video in the Palm of Either Hand

Switch Grip 2.0 allows you to switch hands without worrying about missing any of the action. You can record both vertically and horizontally. Plus, one-button control makes recording and playing video easier than ever.

Image Description

20x Optical Zoom

Lightweight and compact, the Samsung SMART CAMCORDER goes wherever you go. It also features a Schneider Kreuznach lens with 20x Optical Zoom (40x Digital Zoom) that puts you in the middle of the action, even when you’re far away. Capture a game-winning goal from the far end of the soccer field, or a band rocking out - even from the back row. Details are as crisp and clear as if you were shooting from up close.

Image Description

Full HD Movie Recording

Record movies in the palm of either hand. With HD Movie Recording, you can shoot full 1920x1080 HD video from many angles and share footage instantly.

Image Description

OIS DUO +

With OIS (Optical Image Stabilizer) Duo +, you can capture clear and steady video, even if you have a case of shaky hands. The Samsung SMART CAMCORDER combines a built-in OIS with digital image stabilization technology to prevent bumps, jolts, and shivers from blurring image quality. OIS Duo Plus also compensates for body movement that can occur while you’re moving around, or for the movement of the digital zoom.

Image Description

Art Time Lapse

Capture an event that takes place over the course of hours - such as a butterfly emerging from its chrysalis - and present it in a fraction of the time. Art Time-Lapse Recording captures still frames at preset intervals, and then creates an HD file with the stills placed in sequential order. A variety of modes, including Night Time, Zooming, Panning and Reverse Playback, give you more creative options.

Image Description

2.7" LCD Touch Screen

With the wide 2.7"(67.5mm) LCD display, you can see everything in the shot - even when you’re next to the camcorder. That’s because the LCD display features a wide viewing angle that lets you see images on the screen clearly while you shoot, even when you’re looking from the side, above, or below.

Image Description

HDMI

High-quality single-cable digital audio/video interface for connecting the camera to PC computers, PC portable devices, new-generation tablets and devices featuring the HDMI output.

Image Description

CMOS BSI

Don’t let low light conditions get in the way of a great photo opportunity. The CMOS Sensor needs less light than a conventional CCD sensor for properly exposed images. Capture clearly the vibrancy of a piazza at night or the quietude of an orchard at dusk-without vertical smears.
