    allows the Samsung camcorders to run more efficiently while operating. That

    translates to longer battery life and enabling longer recording times.

    with i-Check. This intuitive feature allows the

    consumer to check remaining battery life and

    available memory space at the touch of a button

    even when the camcorder is not on.

    MMC+ memory card slot. This enables the consumer to increase the

    camcorders memory capacity as they see fit.

    consumers to comfortably hold the camcorder while shooting at normal

    shooting angles. The Swivel Hand grip is also designed to rotate up to 150

    What is the advantage of the flash memory used

    in Samsung camcorders?

    The flash memory used in Samsung camcorders

    provides you with the power and flexibility you'd

    expect from a Samsung camcorder. First, the

    high-speed flash memory allows you to start

    shooting video in a mere three seconds with itsQuick Start function. The flash memory enables

    the camcorder to transfer data at a high speed

    without any delays. The advanced flash memory is

    also very efficient so it consumes less power,

    which translates to longer recording time. It also

    does not contain any moving parts, making it

    durable and resistant to the wear-and-tear of

    frequent use. This reduces the chance of losing

    precious moments from an accident. Finally, the

    small size of the powerful flash memory is the key

    to the camcorder's light-weight, compact design,

    which allows you to take the camcorder wherever

    you want to go.

    Can I expand the available memory in these new

    Samsung camcorders?

    Yes. The flash memory on the new, next-

    generation camcorders can be expanded via the

    SD/MMC card slots which are also SDHC /

    MMC+ compatible. That means that you'll never

    run out of memory and there's no need to replaceor upgrade the built-in flash memory. You can

    then take your expandable memory card and

    easily transfer the data from the camcorder to your

    PC, ensuring that you will always have enough

    memory on your built-in flash memory. The best

    part of all is that you control how much more

    memory you want to add.
