Samsung Introduces W200 Pocket Cam for Full HD Filming
      #40492 - 04/20/11 05:08 PM

No more FlipVideo, but don't worry, Samsung's got you covered! Samsung today launched the W200 Pocket Cam with a 5 megapixel BSI CMOS sensor and F2.2 Bright Lens that can take 1920 x 1080p video in 30fps. Here is more info on this new HD video cam from Samsung:

The W200 is waterproof up to three meters, thanks to its anti-water drop coating. The lens also features anti-fog coating that lets steam disperse so you always have clear, blur-free videos and pictures even straight after coming out of the pool. To make capturing amazing underwater footage simple, the W200 also includes an Aqua Mode setting, which automatically sets the ideal parameters for the bright and clear underwater video. It is also shock-proof and dust-proof and so is the perfect addition to a backpack for any trip and robust enough for worry-free family vacations with young children.

The W200 is built with a 5-megapixel BSI (Back Side Illuminated) CMOS sensor, which delivers double the sensitivity of previous CMOS sensors, capturing footage with dramatically reduced image noise and distortion. Along with this, the W200 includes a bright F2.2 lens to give users the ability to shoot during low-light conditions for stunningly clear, sharp, blur-free images. The camcorder shoots in Full HD resolution to let you capture every moment in rich, dynamic detail and displays your video on a 2.3? 230K clear pixel LCD screen.

The W200 makes it easy to both manage your video files and be creative with them too. With Samsung?s Record Pause feature, users can pause briefly during filming and then resume from the exact same moment. When filming is complete, footage will all be in the same file, removing the need to merge them and making uploading and sharing hassle-free. To have more fun with filming, whether at the waterpark, on a rollercoaster or just capturing a special family moment, the W200 has two special Smart Filter features. Vignetting allows users to fade the edges of shots and the Fish-Eye setting creates an arty, distorted feel for unique and interesting footage.
