The hits just keep on coming. At the rate Samsung is releasing cool new products, we may have to change the name of this month to Samtember! The latest? The HMX-T10 compact camcorder featuring full HD video, (1920 x 1080) 4.7 megapixel stills, uses SD/SDHC cards for storage and features a new slanted lens that reduces user fatigue when shooting over an extended period of time. If the cool new design wasn’t enough to get your attention, maybe the built-in optical image stabilization and 2.7″ touchscreen will–all for under $300. The HMX-T10 is due to launch later this month and we’ll have a full review as soon as we get some hands-on time. Until then, some beauty shots and the official press release will have to do…
