Manufacturer's Description

designed to perform
Be prepared to capture that elusive moment anytime, anywhere with the VP-MX20 Flash Memory Camcorder. It packs a 34x optical/1200x digital zoom with electronic image stabilisation for remarkably clear pictures, viewed in the 2.7” LCD display.

new integrated chip solution with SAMSUNG DNIe™ technology
Experience the most naturally beautiful images with our DNle™. 3-Dimension Noise Reduction, advanced Color Expression, Hyper Digital Image Stabiliser, Super LCD plus, and Face Detection Auto Focus. The SAMSUNG chip enables longer battery life, extended recording time, and higher quality digital imaging. By designing and implementing a powerful single chip control system, power consumption is dramatically reduced, allowing you to capture more memories that can be treasured for the rest of your life.

colour as vivid as your memories
Digital Natural Colour Processing creates an expanded palette of colours that are closer to those seen in nature. By internally adjusting images beyond RGB into 4 colour CMYG spectral colour matching, the MX20 is able to accurately recreate colours that are closer to those your eyes see, closer to your memories, and closer to reality.

more recording time, more memories to treasure
Enjoy recording more of the highest quality video footage with the SAMSUNG MX20. Thanks to the high performing H.264 Codec, the MX20 record more of your memories than camcorders which use MPEG2. With the same capacity, the MX20 record about twice more than MPEG2 codec.
Its compressed video files are faster to e-mail and upload to the web, which makes sharing as easy as can be, with no loss of Image quality.

web & mobile mode
Sharing your life with friends and family becomes easier with the SAMSUNG MX20.
By selecting the Web & Mobile mode, you can shoot in an H.264 that supports MP3 players and YouTube. The video files recorded by the SAMSUNG MX20 can easily be used with a transfer program and played on an H.264-supported MP3 player. The YouTube uploader in the Mediashow software bundle enables direct YouTube upload which bypasses the YouTube homesite.

3D noise reduction
The MX20 transcend the boundaries of convention by introducing 3D noise reduction that dramatically eliminates noise while maintaining the original edge and pattern of the image.
By analysing motion between the frames, the frames are split into pattern / edge frames and differential frames and are passed through separate filters which maintain the pattern and edge and remove noise. After filtering, the frames are combined once more to make a cleaner, clearer image.

face detection AF technology
Unlike conventional camcorders, the MX20’s advanced Face Detection AF technology targets the faces in the screen. With intelligent face detection auto-focus, faces are always focused-on, even if they are not in the center of the screen. SAMSUNG’s Face Detection AF enables you to capture clearer, higher quality video.

the longest battery time
Long Battery Time gives an incredible 3 hours of recording freedom. With its Long Battery Time, the SAMSUNG MX20 allow you to record, play, and have fun for longer than ever.

free style shooting
The innovative swivel grip allows you to seamlessly move the camcorder between regular and low level positions, giving you complete control over how and what you shoot.

time lapse recording (Interval recording)
The innovative swivel grip allows you to seamlessly move the camcorder between regular and low level positions, giving you complete control over how and what you shoot.
