Curvy and stylish, the Samsung SMX-F30 records straight to compact, sturdy and convenient SD memory card, allowing you to potentially carry thousands of hours of footage in a pocket or purse. The SMX-F30 is fitted with a Schneider Kreuznach 42x intellizoom lens which is far more powerful than most lenses fitted to similarly priced camcorders and making the SMX-F30 ideal for sporting and wildlife applications. The camera has a battery life of three hours and is also capable of still photography.
The 8th generation DSP chip from Samsung
Experience the most naturally beautiful images with the 8th generation DSP chip from Samsung. Advanced Colour Expression, Hyper Digital Image Stabiliser, Super LCD plus, and Face Detection Auto Focus combine to make your digital image dreams a reality. Longer battery life, extended recording time, and higher quality digital imaging are enabled by the Samsung chip. By designing and implementing a powerful single chip control system, power consumption is dramatically reduced, allowing you to capture more memories that can be treasured for the rest of your life.
3D noise reduction
The F30 transcends the boundaries of convention by introducing 3D noise reduction that dramatically eliminates noise while maintaining the original edge and pattern of the image. By analysing motion between the frames, the frames are split into pattern / edge frames and differential frames and are passed through separate filters which maintain the pattern and edge and remove noise. After filtering, the frames are combined once more to make a cleaner, clearer image.
Colour as vivid as your memories
Digital Natural Colour Processing creates an expanded palette of colours that are closer to those seen in nature. By internally adjusting images beyond RGB into 4 colour CMYG spectral colour matching, the F30 is able to accurately recreate colours that are closer to those your eyes see, closer to your memories, and closer to reality.
Face detection AF technology
Unlike conventional camcorders, the F30's advanced Face Detection AF technology targets the faces in the screen. With intelligent face detection auto-focus, faces are always focused-on, even if they are not in the centre of the screen. Samsung’s Face Detection AF enables you to capture clearer, higher quality video.
Battery life that won't let you down
With its long battery life, the Samsung F30 allows you to record, play, and have fun for as long as you like. Long battery life gives an incredible 3 hours of recording freedom (1.9W, 850mAh) compared with company A's 1 hour 10minutes (2.9W, 1000mAh) and company B's 1 hour 20 minutes (3.8W, 800mAh), giving you all the time you need to make memories that last a lifetime.
More recording time, more memories to treasure
Enjoy recording more of the highest quality video footage with the Samsung F30. Thanks to the high performing H.264 Codec, the F30 records more of your memories than camcorders which use MPEG2. With the same capacity, the F30 records about twice more than MPEG2 codec. Its compressed video files are faster to e-mail and upload to the web, which makes sharing as easy as can be, with no loss of image quality.
Full angle grip
The F30's multi-positional swivel hand grip offers full flexibility and freedom of movement for the full range of shooting positions. The innovative swivel grip allowing you to seamlessly move the camcorder between regular and low level positions, giving you complete control over how and what you shoot.
Share your memories, share your life
Back to top
Sharing your life with friends and family becomes easier with the Samsung F30. By selecting the Web & Mobile mode, you can shoot in an H.264 that supports MP3 players and YouTube. The video files recorded by the Samsung F30 can easily be used with a transfer program and played on an H.264-supported MP3 player. The YouTube uploader in the Media show software bundle enables direct YouTube upload which bypasses the You Tube home site.
