The Samsung HMX-F90 HD Camcorder records up to 720p video at 30 fps and features a Schneider lens that provides 52x optical zoom range to get you closer to the action. The lens also has a maximum aperture of f/1.8 to benefit shooting in dimly light environments. In addition to 720p video, the camcorder can also capture 1.9MP still photos onto SD/SDHC/SDXC memory cards. Users can monitor and play back recorded files on the 2.7" articulated LCD panel, or use the micro HDMI output and an optional HDMI cable to connect to your HDTV for large screen playback of your footage with family and friends. You can also share connect the camera to a Windows computer using an included USB cable and use the camcorder's built-in Intelli-studio editing software to transfer, edit, and upload your videos directly to social media sites such as YouTube. Connecting to a computer's USB port will also charge the camera battery when attached.
