Samsung’s Digital AV Marketing Manager, Sagar Dave said that they want to make it easy for users to shoot video anytime.
“We wanted to make it easy for consumers to create and share their memories using HD footage and at the same time, offer a compact and portable design that makes it possible to capture every memorable moment of everyday life,” says Dave.
The U10 comes with a play-edit-sharing program called Intelli Studio that gives you the ability to edit and play your video without having to install supporting software. It also comes with a one-touch “upload” button that provides a direct connection to YouTube. Each video clip saved on the camcorder is represented by a small thumbnail on the LCD screen so that when you are scrolling through your videos, each thumbnail will provide a short playback of the highlighted video file.
