Samsung HZ1

Samsung HZ1The Samsung HZ1 compact superzoom camera is announced today. Boasting a 10x zoom lens and compact dimensions, the Samsung HZ1 is the world’s first superzoom to offer 24mm equivalent wide angle. The lens’ physical focal length range is 4.2-42mm, which translates into 24-240mm in 35mm terms. The Samsung HZ1 offers dual image stabilisation, face detection, a traditional mode dial for quick adjustment of settings and is also capable of recording HD video at 720p. The full specifications of the HZ1 are yet to be confirmed.

We have a gallery of photographs of a non-working prototype of the new HZ1, taken today in the Samsung booth at Photokina - click the continue link to see the gallery.

  1. wonder if samsung uses the .mov or .avi format for video..
    panasonic uses the .mov, and is not very impressive.. choppy and jerky.
    sony and canon are the leaders now, in smooth video flow.
    and.. the .mov format is not made for pc, just mac really.

  2. Dear Anders Fagerstrom

    As far as I know, all recent cameras from samsung support H.264 encoding when they record video.

  3. I wonder if it will have RAW capability, that would be quite something.

  4. very cool looking, but for the quality, performance, price are another concern.

  5. It has taken me weeks to choose the Olympus mju 1010 (Very compact, good zoom ,but no wide angle) over the Panasonic tz5 (Very good zoom, wide angle, but a bit to big)
    I already use the Kodak Z612 and I am after the same/better but much smaller.
    Now I spot this and it could be the answer to all my wants.
    As with Dubb quality, performance, price are a concern.
    And the real big ? When ?

  6. Having tested this one, I don't really like the way it handles, it doesn't feel nice in your hands...
    Otherwise, it's not too bad, Samsung can do better though!
