If the design of Samsung's HMX-U10 camcorder is a little too outré for your tastes, the company has two more traditionally-shaped offerings today.  The Samsung SMX-K40 and SMX-K45 both conform to the standard palmcorder format, but actually they're not quite as technically capable as the U10; each can record up to 720 x 480 resolution, rather than their upright sibling's 1080p.

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.

Eye-Fi have announced their latest wireless memory card, the 4GB Eye-Fi Pro.  Using the SDHC format, the new Eye-Fi Pro offers the usual automatic wireless transfer of images from digital cameras to a computer or website; however it also adds new file-type support, increased control over which images are synchronized, more flexible WiFi connectivity and video functionality.
