  • Movie Quality:

Pros:Image stabilization helps give quality pictures.   The camera is light weight (about 4 ounces).

Cons:Miss capability to switch out batteries:  rechargeable battery is a challenge during day-long outings.

The Bottom Line: Took a gamble on this when we found a sale price, but this would well be worth the $159.99 regular price.


The Samsung Waterproof Full H W200 Camcorder is easy to handle, easy to record or switch to still photos in dry or wet conditions.  Our first use was on a Boy Scout weekend trip to a waterpark, and this camcorder was a major hit of the day!  Even when dropped, the camcorder stayed workable and showed no damage to the body. The red color makes the camcorder easy to find when kids "dropped" it in piles of wet beachtowels.  Pictures are crisp, clear.  None of the boys needed a manual to get the most out of the camera.  This camera is supposed to be waterproof to 10 feet and shockproof from 6.5 feet; so far we've only tested both at shorter levels and have seen no adverse effects to the camera or pictures.  Finding a micro SDHD was interesting, but due to convenience they probably will be more available in the future. We found several sources for the micro SDHDs online, all at reasonable prices. A bit unnerving for a nontechnology person like me to use as I like 1-2-3 instructions on hand instead of having to refer to a manual.  The kids, however, had no problem with getting the most out of this camera.
