Samsung Rolls Out W200 Pocket Videocam


South Korea’s Samsung has launched its W200 pocket video camera, a waterproof and shockproof point-and-shoot with a 5-megapixel CMOS sensor and bright f/2.2 lens for full HD filming.

A special feature of the new W200 is its anti-water drop coating so water does not stick to its glass and anti-fog coating that prevents fogging up the camera when under water.

Samsung said the W200 also includes an Aqua Mode setting, which automatically sets the ideal parameters for shooting bright and clear underwater video.

The new pocket-sized videocam will be available in May for about $160.
