Outline

HMX-Q10 is a digital camcorder easily controllable just with one button and is designed top/bottom reversal which makes it good for both hands. One hand is typically used to hold the camcorder and that strains the wrist. So a camcorder designed for both hands not only benefits left-handed users but frees up right-handed users to do other tasks such as answering the phone or to take notes.

Evaluation

One of the unique features of this product is the way the body and control switches were designed with full regard for vertical and horizontal symmetry. We liked the fact that this makes it possible to operate the camera just how you want, either-way up and with either the left or the right hand. You can see that the designers styled the almost cylindrical, geometric body with a clear understanding of the relative importance of the different features required of a video camera, enabling them to create a product that is easily operated by either hand.
