Professional Audio recording
Color that bursts with life
To provide professional quality audio recording to match the professional video recording of the Samsung S10/S15/S16, we
have developed a range of intelligent audio features that get you closer to the action.
The advanced imaging technologies incorporated into the Samsung S10/S15/S16 enable it to achieve richer, more realistic
color and exceptional depth of detail, enabling you to record video that is more lifelike than ever before.
Get close to the sound
Color Information
The Auto Zoom Audio Mic feature is designed to provide a higher quality audio experience. Unlike conventional audio recording that is only capable
of recording sounds that are close to the microphone, Auto Zoom Audio Mic records sounds that are close to the object you are recording, so that
when you get closer to the action, so does the microphone.
Clarity beyond comparison
The Samsung S10/S15/S16 features advanced contrast enhancement
that enables it to achieve incredible natural color. From pure black to
pristine white, and covering every shade of color in-between, the Samsung
S10/S15/S16 is able to capture images with clarity beyond comparison.

Upgraded noise reduction
Extreme Fine recording mode for better image (24 Mega Bit Per Second)
Another key benefit of the S10/S15/S16 is that it uses a maximum data rate of 24 Mbps to record full HD video unlike a typical 16Mbps mode.
A high bit rate means less compression and followingly less video data loss for higher video quality.
With its unique dynamic 3D noise reduction, the Samsung S10/S15/S16
is able to capture images with complete clarity and accurate depth of detail.
This upgrade from 2D noise reduction to 3D noise reduction ensures that
every aspect of every image is presented to perfection.

The Samsung S10/S15/S16’s xvYcc color performance dramatically
expands the color spectrum to display virtually the entire gamut of colors
perceivable by the human eye. The extended xvYCC standard supports some
1.8 times as many colors as the commonplace sRGB color space providing
deeper greens, reds and blues. With Real Color Representation xvYCC,
the new standard in high definition, you will experience richer, more realistic
color expression that adds depth and detail to each and every image. Now
you can take full advantage of the convergence of technologies between
the S10/S15/S16 camcorder and your Samsung TV.

The HD Time Lapse Recording feature is designed to allow you to capture and condense the slow passage of time. By taking still shots at preset
intervals, then placing them in sequential order, HD Time Lapse Recording is able to create an HD video file that compresses hours of recording into
minutes of viewing.
High-Speed Recording & Super Slow Motion Playback
Best of both worlds
Enjoy the benefits of the high-speed recording and super slow motion features all in one camcorder. Starting
with the 600 fps High-speed Recording feature, the Samsung S10/S15/S16 enables you to capture even
the fastest moving images with phenomenal precision. The Super Slow Motion Playback feature shows the
movie images very slowly at 300-600 fps to deliver detailed frame-by-frame images that you may have
missed in real time. Combine those two features and you may meet a new world that goes very slow.
For example, with a recording speed of 600 fps, you can capture something as fast as a golf swing with
incredible accuracy and precision. You can then slow it down with the Super Slow Motion Playback feature
to analyze every movement in the swing, enabling minute adjustments and corrections that other camcorders
cannot capture.
The Samsung S10/S15/S16 features advanced automatic image enhancement technologies that are designed to help
you shoot with clarity and confidence.
Smart O.I.S
The Samsung S10/S15/S16’s premium Schneider Kreuznach HD lens
is equipped with an advanced Smart O.I.S (Optical Image Stabilizer) that
eliminates the effects of motion and unstable hands. This guarantees that
video footage is presented with professional precision at all times.
