Samsung W200


$159.00 Released May, 2011

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Ruggedized design - shockproof up to 6.5 feet, waterproof up to 10 feet for 30 minutes, and dustproof. Flip-out USB connection with embedded sharing / editing software - no need to remember a cable or CD. 5MP backside-illuminated CMOS sensor - improved low light performance over previous generation technology.

The Cons:Records to the smaller, more expensive microSDHC flash storage, not the larger SD/SDHC/SDXC variety. Rugged port protection doors seem flimsy - might not actually hold up to abuse. No optical image stabilization.

The Samsung W200 is a rugged pocket camcorder and still camera designed to offer high definition video capturing with a resistance to the elements. Capable of shooting with its full 1080p resolution up to 3 meters underwater, and automatically calibrating optimal brightness and clarity using its Aqua Mode, the W200 also offers protection from shock, dirt, and snow.
