The HZ10W also includes a large high-res 2.7" (230,000 pixel) LCD screen which displays saved photos and videos at crystal clear resolutions. Thanks to the high quality lens the HZ10W can also capture 720p high-definition videos at 30 frames per second; the videos are then compressed in the H.264 format which means longer recording times for videos stored on SD and SDHC cards (the H.264 format takes up less space due to its compression size). Samsung claims the HZ10W will be available sometime in January, 2009 and has an estimated retail price of $299.99
Special enhanced features include a Successive Recording mode which allows users to pause recording and start again while saving to one complete file; optical image stabilization support for very lighted environments, dual image stabilization for low lighted environments, smart album storage capabilities making it easier to locate a photo on the device, and telephoto lens capabilities of 240mm which is equal to a 35mm film equivalent. The camera is available in black or silver and measures dimensions of 4.13” W x 2.4” H x 1.4” D.
