If you are looking to buy a new camcorder any time soon, it might be worth holding out until the summer. That's because June should be seeing the release of Samsung's new HMX-S16 Wi-Fi camcorder.


The HMX-S16 is packed full of features. Recording in full HD resolution at 30fps and featuring a CMOS sensor, it packs in an 18x optical zoom with an optical image stabiliser to keep recordings blur-free. We gave recordings a good wobble in our brief test, and playback was nice and clear.


The 3.5 inch LCD touchscreen was responsive and bright, and the UI, while streamlined enough for a casual user to get stuck in straight away, had enough depth of options to keep the amateur enthusiast happy.


A HDMI-out port allows for HDTV output 1080p, while a DLNA certified Wi-Fi connection will let users upload videos and stills straight to your home network or Samsung-branded internet TV.


It may feel at times a little chunky in the hand, but when you consider everything going on inside of this camcorder, it's of a reasonable size.


Also new Victoria Engine processor, a cutting-edge 1/2.3 inch BSI (Back Side Illumination) CMOS imaging sensor, Schneider Kreuznach Varioplan-HD lens with Samsung's 18x Intelli Zoom, Optical Stabilization, large 3.5-inch wide touch-screen LCDs that house a 3D graphic user interface (GUI), unique features such as a flash to help capture 10 mega-pixel digital still images, storyboard printing and the ability to shoot in super slow motion with speeds of 300 fps at a resolution of 368×208 and 600 fps at a resolution of 192×112, and high-definition time lapse recording.


Is that any good
?

Right, they use the name only. The German optic companies don't make lenses for consumer cameras. My Zeiss 7x42 FL binoculars cost $2,200 and that is because it is made by Zeiss.
