CES 2011: Samsung HMX-P300 & HMXP100, point and share camcorders Samsung is showing off new camcorders at CES, two of which it dubs "point and share" devices.
The Full HD HMX-P300 and HMX-P100 have been designed specifically for people who like to record and share video content regularly. Key developments including a 5M BSI (Back Side Illuminated) CMOS sensor, which dramatically improves low-light recording and HD movie recording, are available in the P100.

The HMX-P300 and HMX-P100 are also the ultimate point-and-share camcorders for those who want to upload their videos quickly and easily. Through the new One Touch Sharing feature, users can select which website they want to upload files to directly from the LCD screen.

The 3" 230K pixel Touch LCD screen can also rotate to give multiple shooting angles that allow the user a full, clear view of their subject without sacrificing the shot through portrait or landscape orientation. To make sure that you don't miss any of the action, the Samsung HMX-P100 is also built with an LCD screen that has an 80-degree viewing angle, so no matter how you're holding your point-and-share camcorder, you'll enjoy a clear view every time.

Samsung has been boosting/shipping a lot of products lately, maybe they want an competitive advantage over their rivals .
