Avoid! Poor quality

on 10/12/2011

I own several cameras & am careful w/ all of them. I purchased this mainly for usage in or near water. During my 1st usage in a pool, perhaps after 10 mins or so, the LCD would display static & I would have to power off & back on again. One time (same day), it failed to power on so I left it to dry overnight and hit the pin reset button after which it would power on fine & is functional again. By that time however, I already missed multiple photo opportunities. The next day (2nd time) of usage in the pool, it again displayed the same issues - static or failure to power on. Unfortunately I was unable to return the device for replacement as I didn't use this camera until after 30 days had already passed. I'm writing to Samsung now to find out if they can replace it at the very least but if the quality of the hardware is the same, then I doubt I'd have better luck with a replacement one either. Will edit this review and add to it depending on the outcome. Crossing my fingers.

Product Overview

The water, shock and dust proof Samsung W200 Rugged Full HD 1080p Pocket Camcorder (Red) is designed to follow you on any adventure. It's specially crafted to record safely in up to 10' (3 m) of water and it features special white balance and sound design, which limit the loss of audio or video clarity that's common to normal underwater recording. The W200 records in full 1080p HD and features 1920 x 1080 resolution or 1280 x 720 resolution. For taking still JPEG images, the W200 can capture shots with up to 5.5MP and 2720 x 2040 resolution. It boasts auto focus, auto shutter and auto white balance. Plus, it has a built-in microphone and records audio in AAC file format. For video, the W200 uses the H.264 recording format, and it also enhances the recording quality by reducing image noise and distortion. For playback, you can use the mini HDMI port to view your Full 1920 x 1080/30p recordings in Full HD on a compatible HDTV. HDMI transfers uncompressed high-definition video and audio for crisp and clear playback of your memories. The bright lens on the W200 affords several aperture steps for shooting with higher shutter speeds in low-light. This helps prevent blurring and image distortion.

The camcorder also features Record Pause and Smart Filter. Record Pause lets you pause recording without starting another file and Smart Filter gives you tons of artistic options to jazz up photos and video. The W200 also has a built-in USB arm and MicroSD Card slot. The USB arm lets you quickly charge the device in any USB port, as well as upload content onto your computer. With a MicroSD Card slot, you can easily store your content and then load onto your computer later. By infusing the W200 with several useful, fun features and a durable design that houses an HD image recorder; Samsung has created the ultimate travel partner for adventurer in all of us.
