High Sensitivity BSI CMOS Sensor
Samsung’s newly developed BSI CMOS Image Sensor
provides double the light sensitivity of normal CMOS sensors
and reduces light loss. You’ll get superior pictures with much
clearer images under low light conditions.

Full HD 1080 Viewing Performance
Your camcorder uses advanced H.264 compression technology to give you the clearest video
quality. Its full HD resolution displays your pictures more clearly than normal standard (SD)
quality pictures.

SSD (Solid State Drive) for Built-in Storage Media (HMX-H203/H204/H205 only)
Your camcorder uses an advanced SSD technology (based on flash memory) for its built-in
memory. The SSD helps the camcorder boot, read data, and operate software much faster
than normal HDD (Hard Disk Drives). Also, SSD is very stable, durable, and makes less noise
while in operation. It is environmentfriendly because low electric power is required.
Touch panel adopted
You can play recorded images and set functions by simply tapping on the LCD screen.
Dual Recording
While recording full HD videos, you can capture still images with the simple push of a
button. Capture still images and save them to the storage.
Shooting Custom Scenes
In Scene mode, appropriate options are pre-set for each kind
of scene. Select a scene that matches your shot for easy
shooting.
ii
Shift over wider range of motion with Smart OIS (Optical Image Stabilization)
Smart OIS improves on existing Optical Image Stabilization by allowing the camcorder lens
to shift over wider range of motion in wide/tele zoom position. This allows the camcorder to
compensate for greater degrees of camcorder shake and delivers a stunning level of image
smoothness.
Magic Finger Focus, Magic Finger Shot
To focus on a subject, just touch the screen and
shoot. Your camcorder optimizes the focus for the
touched point, giving you professional results with
one easy operation. You can also focus on your
subject and take a photo with a touch of your finger.

the best camcorder settings for various scenes.
Time Lapse Recording Catches the Moment
Time lapse recording lets you capture the blooming of
flowers or the passage of clouds like the pros.
Use this function to make UGC (User-Generated
Content ) videos, artistic recordings, eductational
programs or documentary videos.
Make All Your Recordings with a Simple VIEW Button!

from the video you select and saves the images to the
storage media. You get a quick overview of your video a real help when you want to review a video quickly.
Direct Upload of Your Videos to the Web!
Intelli-studio built-in editing software installs
directly from your camcorder to your PC when
you connect the camcorder to your PC via
USB cable. Using Intelli-studio, you can upload
your videos and photos to your PC with ease
and upload them directly to YouTube, Flickr or
Facebook. Sharing videos with your friends

Using a lower write speed memory card
for recording video may cause difficulties
when storing.
You may even lose your video data during
the recording.

recorded video, the camcorder forcibly
stores the video on the memory card and
displays a warning:

White balance (WB) is the process of removing unrealistic color casts, so that objects
which appear white are rendered white in your image. Proper white balance has to take
into account the “color temperature” of a light source, which refers to the relative warmth
or coolness of white light.

What’s a “Playlist?”
You can create a playlist on the same storage media by gathering your favorite scenes from
the recorded videos. Adding or deleting videos from a playlist does not affect the original video
images.
Example: You have recorded a few scenes on the storage media. You want to save the original
recording, but you also want to create a digest by putting your favorite scenes together. In this
case, you can create a playlist by selecting your favorite scenes, leaving the original recording
as it is.

When there is dew condensation, put the camcorder aside for a while before using
t 8IBUJTEFXDPOEFOTBUJPO
Dew condensation happens when a camcorder is moved to a location where there is a significant
temperature difference from the previous location. The dew condenses on the external or internal
parts of the camcorder, and on the reflection lens. If there is dew on or in your camcorder, it may
cause the camcorder to malfunction or damage the camcorder when you turn the power on.
t &YBDUMZXIFOEPFTEFXDPOEFOTBUJPOPDDVS
When you move the camera to a location with a higher temperature than the previous location, or
when you move it to a hot area suddenly. Examples:
- You record outside in cold weather during the winter and then move the camera in indoors.
- You record outside in hot weather after being indoors or inside a car where the A/C was
running.

maintenance & additional information
MAINTENANCE
Your camcorder is a product of superior design and craftsmanship and should be treated with
care.
The suggestions below will help you fulfill any warranty obligations and allow you to enjoy this
product for many years.

- Remove the battery and AC power adaptor. pages 16, 20
- Remove the memory card. page 28
Cautions when storing
t Do not leave the camcorder in a place where the temperature is very high for a long
period of time:
The temperature inside a closed vehicle or trunk can become very high in a hot weather.
If you leave the camcorder in such a place, it could malfunction or the case could be
damaged. Do not expose the camcorder to a direct sunlight or place it near a heater.
t Do not store the camcorder in a place where the humidity is high or in a dusty place:
Dust entering the camcorder could cause a malfunction. If humidity is high, the lens could
become moldy, and the camcorder could become inoperative. It is recommended that you
put the camcorder in a box together with a small silica bag when storing it in a closet, etc.
