Samsung shrinks the Duocam

Eric Lin

Samsung DuocamMaking a more serious effort to compete in the now blooming multi-format flash recorder world, Samsung has reduced the size of its dual lens/dual CCD Duocam by a whopping 40%, meaning it's finally almost pocketable. The video side of the SC-D6550 captures full motion movies with 10x zoom lens, image stabilization and an assist lamp. The still picture side now has a 5 MP sensor. Both sides can write to a multi format card slot that accepts memory stick, SD and MMC cards. Past models have looked a little too chunky and steampunk for our tastes, but we'll grab a picture as soon as one's up (or CES opens) to see whether a 40% reduction in size also yields a 40% increase in sleekness.
