There's a new sensor and a new lens, but the star of the show is the large internal solid state drive (SSD)?16GB to 64GB, depending on the particular H-series model.

We already had some hands-on time with the unique HMX-R10 (Review, Specs, Recent News, $0.00), a high definition video-still hybrid with a distinctive design. Now we set our sights (and our hands) on one camcorder from the upcoming H-series, the Samsung HMX-H105. There's a new sensor and a new lens, but the star of the show is the large internal solid state drive (SSD)—16GB to 64GB, depending on the particular H-series model. If Samsung can just match the performance of last year's model with the promise of high capacity solid state memory, they could earn a lot of new fans when the HMX-H105 launches in March. Lens & Sensor Samsung's entire H-series lineup features the same 1/4.5-inch CMOS sensor and 10x optical zoom Schneider Kreuznach Verioplan HD lens. The sensor is
  • larger than the ones used on Samsung's standard definition lineup, but not as large as the one in last year's SC-HMX20 and the upcoming HMX-R10. It's also a lower resolution that the other high definition sensors Samsung uses. Lens Sensor Filter Diameter 37mm Type CMOS Focal Range 3.3-33mm Size 1/4.5quot; Focal Range (35mm equiv.) n/a Pixel Count (gross) 2,200,000 Aperture F1.8-2.3 Pixel Count (Effective) 2,200,000 Front The front of the Samsung HMX-H105 is perfectly round, keeping with the design of last year's SC-HMX20. At the top is a flash for still photos. Below that is the Schneider Kreuznach lens, with an auto lens cover to protect it. The front of the HMX-H105 is all lens. Right The right side of the Samsung HMX-H105 is quite sleek. The hand strap is wide and comfortable, with a stitched fake leather that actually looks designer (well, some designer, anyway). Behind the hand strap is a large smooth surface with a rubbery, grippy surface. It's comfortable to hold, and feels more secure than the typical smooth, plastic finish of most camcorders. The H105 also features Samsung's unique swivel-grip that allows the grip section to pivot away from the body, allowing for more handling options.
  • The right side of the HMX-H105 features the swivel grip. Back The back of the Samsung HMX-H105 houses a Mode button for switching between video and still record modes, and a large record on/off button. Note that the power button that was previously on the rear has been relocated to the LCD cavity. Open the hard plastic port cover to reveal the largest array of connections: USB, HDMI, DC-power, and AV-out are all here. Are only complaint about the whole back of the camcorder is the choice of a mirror-like chrome surface. They pick up finger prints like crazy and make the whole device look cheap if you're not routinely polishing them with your shirt tail. Depending on the version of the H-Series that you buy, it may not have the chrome finish. The back isn't much of a departure from last year's models. Left The left side of the Samsung HMX-H105 is smooth on the outside and crunchy (with buttons) on the inside. The LCD measures 2.7 inches. Open the LCD to reveal a series of controls that make up most of the interface. Like Sony, and now Panasonic, the camcorder uses a touch screen system. To the left of the screen is the Q.Menu button for calling up the Quick Menu. Below that is a two- button combo for redundant zoom control (primary zoom control is on top of the camcorder), and below that is a redundant record button.
  • There are five buttons in the LCD cavity: the power button, display, EasyQ, flash, and image stabilization. The HMX-H105 is a sleek black. The interior is just as simple. Top The top of the Samsung HMX-H105 features a zoom toggle, which is small but effective, and the photo shutter button. There's a long, shallow finger rest along most of the top that provides a little extra grip for on-the-go-handling. The top of the HMX-H105.
