Like the smartphone that rights itself whichever way you turn it, Samsung’s Q10 camcorder still records perfectly even if you flip it, thanks to its accelerometer. Ideal for left-handers, or those who find something better for their right-hand to do.
The Switch Grip, as it’s called, is the jewel in the crown of an otherwise so-so camcorder. It shoots full HD, but compromises at 60i. Dropping the resolution down to 720p will shoot in 60p. It also takes photos at 4.9MP resolution.
Hardware-wise, it’s got a 2.7-inch touchscreen, and takes SDHC/SD cards, and has USB and HDMI ports. On sale in February, it’ll cost $299.
