Samsung HMX-W200

 

Waterproof to ten feet and drop-proof to 6.5 feet. Records in 1080p or 720p resolution. Uses microSD memory cards. Standard mini HDMI connector

Poor video quality. Jittery when zooming. Issues with controls. Flip-out USB plug-in connector is recessed and difficult to maneuver in some computers

The Samsung HMX-W200 is one of the few pocket camcorders that can survive falls and capture underwater video, but with video quality that doesn’t live up to its 1080p promise and some other issues, you can do better.

Samsung W200 waterproof / rugged 1080p camcorder review

 

Samsung slid its 'multi-proof' W200 pocket cam out a couple of months back, and we've spent the past few weeks testing it out in a place that's no

Compact ; 1080p video mode ; Cheap for this category

Jelly effect in videos ; Not nearly rugged enough ; No manual controls at all

It's a respectable underwater offering for the price, but true argonauts are probably better off spending more for something that's constructed for serious abuse.

Samsung W200 Rugged ( Silver)

 

You might think that pocket video cameras are doomed because of smartphones and the iPhone, but there are some things those devices just can't do. The Samsung HMX-W200, for example, can survive a 6.5-foot drop, or a swim down to 10 feet for up to 30...

The Samsung HMX-W200 produces very good video, has solid sharing and editing software, and has a couple of handy features including a pause button.

Some of the W200's shooting options and durability features aren't very useful.

The Samsung HMX-W200 might be a little less impressive than its specs, but it's still a very good rugged minicamcorder for the money.

Samsung HMX-W200Camcorder Review

 

The Samsung HMX-W200 is a compact and waterproof budget camcorder that showed us some impressive results in our testing. The camcorder retails for around $159 and can take 5-megapixel still photos in addition to recording Full HD video.

Best pocket HD camcorder

 

Waterproof, shockproof and dustproof, beats other pocket cams in low light

Mixed reviews for video quality, not as durable as it could be, no built-in memory, short USB plug is hard to use

Expert review by:

Samsung HMX-W200

 

One of the best we've seen in its price range, delivering sharp video with vivid colors.

Clear, sharp videos" for a compact; User-friendly menu for beginners

Grip could be improved upon; Buttons are unresponsive

Waterproof ultracompact camcorders have been flooding the market over the past year, so it’s fair to say the Samsung HMX-W200 has its good share of competitors. Surprisingly, the W200 held off the other camcorders in its price range by putting up...

Samsung HMX-W200RP review

 

With increasing numbers of people turning to their smartphones to record video, manufacturers of mini camcorders have had to lure consumers with unique features. Samsung's W200 is dustproof and shockproof, and can shoot in 1080p at a depth of up to 3m...

A solidly-built camcorder with decent image quality, the W200 has intuitive controls and a good selection of features, and its underwater abilities are lots of fun too

Samsung W200

 

The Samsung W200 is a waterproof pocket Interent camcorder with excellent low light performance.

Excellent in low light ; Underwater filter ; Good waterproofing and toughness specifications

Digital zoom ; Few manual controls

In many respects, Samsung's W200 is just another toughened, waterproof pocket Internet camcorder. But it is equal to the best in its specifications in this area. It also offers the best performance in low light that we've seen in any camcorder costing...
