Samsung has raised the curtain on its new compact camcorder, the W200. It’s a shock and waterproof design in a Flip-like form factor.
The W200 shoots full 1080p video at 30p and stores footage to a Micro SD/SDHC card. The image sensor is a 5MP backside illuminate CMOS sensor that also captures still images.
The W200 has a bright f/2.2 lens for better low light performance, although there is no optical zoom. It has a built-in USB connector for easily importing footage. Additionally, you get a built-in HDMI port in case you can’t quite wait to export the footage off of the camera to watch it.
The display is a pretty typical 2.3-inch 230K-dot resolution LCD panel. The W200 offers a couple of Smart Filters for adding instant effects to your video – vignetting and fisheye, both of which should be pretty self-explanatory.
