This Samsung digital camcorder is compact and easy to operate with a 10x optical/800x digital zoom lens and a large, 2.5" LCD monitor. Digital image stabilization reduces unwanted shaking, while the 680,000 pixel CCD provides clear images in the Mini-DV format. Power Nite Pix uses infrared rays to let you shoot in less than optimal light, and the integrated USB interface allows quick transfer of digital video clips to your PC or Mac. Other features include a built-in digital still camera, EZ Dial Navigator and IEEE1394 PC interface. Imported. 3-1/2Hx6-1/2Lx3W".
The SCD23 features a high-performance 1/6" 680,000 Pixel CCD to capture high-quality video and digital photos. It's also fitted with a 10X optical zoom and a 800X digital zoom lens. Digital zoom is a powerful tool, but it can lead to "jaggies"--zigzag contours that reduce picture quality. Samsung has applied a Digital Image Stabilizer to correct this problem.
Digital Stills and MPEG Video
The scd23 can cpature videos in MPEG4 format at a resolution of QVGA 10fps. In addition to high-quality video, the SCD23 also captures digital still photos that are stored on a memory card as JPEGs in your choice of three image qualities.
Inputs and Outputs
The SCD23 comes with an IEEE1394(In/Out), USB interface, Audio/Video Ports, and an S-Video Cable port.
MiniDV is the preferred format for personal and broadcast-quality video, highly regarded for its high audio and image quality. With up to 540 lines of horizontal resolution and minimum color noise, MiniDV delivers a 20-percent clearer picture than analog camcorder formats. This is all delivered on a cassette that's 1/12th the size of a standard VHS tape. A MiniDV tape offers digital recording time of 2 full hours--20 times the capacity of a CD.
