Samsung Announces VP-X210L Camcorder, Hardened for Outdoorsy Types

Samsung has introduced the VP-X210L, a rugged camcorder that's also a music player and still camera. Its most unusual feature is a detachable lens that can be mounted on handlebars, your helmet, or anywhere else as long as it's not farther than 9 feet away from the camcorder body.

The VP-X210L has a gigabyte of built-in memory and also an SD memory slot for more storage. The camcorder has a 10x optical zoom and doubles as a two-megapixel still camera. Its longer-life battery will make it a worthy companion on the road or trail. No pricing or availability info was forthcoming yet.
