Memorex MyVideo & MyVideo HD camcorders squeeze into crowded market

Memorex MyVideo & MyVideo HD camcorders squeeze into crowded market

Memorex obviously reckon there's a gap in the market - seriously, where? - for yet another point-and-shoot camcorder, and so they've announced not one but two of the little devils.  Looking somewhat curvier than what's on offer from Flip, Creative and Kodak, the Memorex MyVideo (MCC221) and Memorex MyVideo HD (MCC225) each offer an integrated USB port, digital zoom and 2-inch LCD display, with the MyVideo capturing up to 2hrs of VGA quality footage to its 2GB of internal storage, while the MyVideo has 4GB for up to 1hr of presumably 720p video.

Each also grabs still shots - the MyVideo at VGA resolution, the MyVideo HD at a presumably interpolated 5-mexapixels - and has onboard software to make uploading to Flickr, YouTube and other sites straightforward.  Memorex quote up to 5hrs of battery life for the low-res model and half that for the HD version.

Creative Vado HD Gets Upgraded With Memory, Mac Support, and New Colors

Creative's Vado HD has been out for quite some time now, and it looks like they're finally getting around to giving the small HD video camera some extra attention. Especially in the looks department. We're sure it has something to do with the fact that the competition's prices are dropping, and obviously this just goes to show you that a little competition never hurt anybody. Especially our wallets.

OmniVision Takes a Step Toward High Definition Web and Mobile Phone Cameras

Today marks the day that OmniVision announced a sensor that could potentially make 1080p video capture a very real possibility in mobile devices. And not in ten years. The sensor is called the OV2710, and it can record the HD resolution at 30 frames per second, and it utilizes a 2-megapixel camera that matches the format. Keeping the megapixels low adds quite a few benefits, like lower expenses and getting better image quality in low lighting situations.

Qik for iPhone 3GS arrives: uploads but no real-time streaming

Qik for iPhone 3GS arrives: uploads but no real-time streaming

We're big fans of Qik here at SlashGear; we've used the streaming video service to give you sneak-peaks behind the scenes at various press events.  Now an official version for the iPhone 3GS has been added to the App Store, taking advantage of Apple's newly-loosened attitude toward video capture.  Unlike Qik as we know it, however, the first version of Qik for iPhone 3GS doesn't support real-time low-latency streaming, but instead works as a capture-and-upload tool.

Samsung HMX-U10 point-and-shoot 10MP camcorder

Samsung HMX-U10 point-and-shoot 10MP camcorder

Samsung have unveiled their latest camcorder, and unlike some of the company's more serious models the HMX-U10 has casual point-and-shoot in mind.   A compact 56 x 103 x 15.5mm with a kick in the design to better fit your hand, the upright camera boasts both 10-megapixel stills capture and 1920 x 1080 Full HD video.

Intended to take on the Flip UltraHD, which we reviewed back in May, the HMX-U10 records to SDHC card and uses the H.264 video codec.  Around the back there's a 2-inch LCD for framing and reviewing, together with basic controls; the 1/2.3-inch CMOS lens is fixed focus and seemingly lacks any sort of zoom.
