Samsung SC-X105L MPEG4 Sports Camcorder

Samsung SC-X105L MPEG4 Sports Camcorder

After suggesting the waterproof Pentax Optio WP for those of you who do the whole outdoor living thing, we received a request from an extreme sporting type for a digital camcorder that he could use without being afraid of breaking it. Meet the Samsung SC-X105L ($600). The MPEG4 sports camcorder has a durable, water-resistant body and comes with an extra camera module that can be mounted to a helmet or your arm for hands-free recording. It's got a 10x optical zoom with a 680K movie-optimized CCD lens, the ability to capture digital stills
up to 1280 x 960, and even boasts a
built-in an MP3 player.

  • Canon XL H1 High Definition Camcorder

    Canon today unveiled its very first high-definition camcorder. And while it may be for the pros (think TV news, documentary and feature filmmaking), the XL H1 Camcorder ($9000; available in November) could bring some major firepower to your home movies if you've got the cash to drop. It delivers crystal clear 16:9 HD video at 1080i resolution and features selectable frame rates of 60i, 30F and 24F, and Canon's professional
    "Jackpack" terminals.

  • Sony Cyber-shot DSC-R1

    Bigger is usually better. Digital camera image sensors are no different — the bigger the imager, the better the image. Sony's new Cyber-shot DSC-R1 Camera ($1,000; available in November) was built with an APS-class image sensor that's more than 12 times the size of the typical sensor, so you can imagine what kind of photos it can produce. The 10.3-megapixel camera features an ultra-wide Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar 5x zoom lens (24mm-120mm) and the flexibility of live preview while shooting on the free-angle, two-inch LCD.
