The HMX-Q10 is a compact, practical and easy-to-use Full HD camcorder. It combines the world's first switch grip with easy operation via an LCD screen. The switch grip means that however the camcorder is held, the G-magnetic sensor inside the HMX-Q10 recognizes the angle and turns the LCD display so it's easy to see and control recording easily from any angle. Easy operation means that users can control detailed processes, turn the camcorder on and off and operate the playback function easily through the LCD screen, so controlling the device is intuitive and fuss-free, and viewing footage is as easy as capturing it. The slim and durable body also means that the HMX-Q10 is compact and light enough to be taken anywhere, and the product is so flexible it can also double as a 4.9-megapixel (MP) still photo camera.
