Multiproof W200 Pocket Cam for Full HD Filming
– Samsung’s first waterproof cam
– The ideal vacation pocket cam features the best in imaging technology and specialised underwater features for great video anywhere
Singapore, 27 July 2011 – Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd, a global leader in digital media and digital convergence technologies, launched its first waterproof camera – W200 Pocket Cam. The W200 is designed to be taken anywhere to capture brilliant video in the toughest conditions, particularly underwater. It has features such as a 5 megapixel BSI CMOS sensor and F2.2 Bright Lens. Especially created for those whose active lifestyles demand both durability and quality, it houses Samsung’s leading imaging technology in a shock, water and dust-proof rugged body.
W200 is built to withstand the elements to produce high-quality video in almost any circumstances with its specialized functions. It makes brilliant underwater video easier to achieve. It is waterproof up to three meters, making it suitable for great video of a relaxed day by the pool or even up-close shots of coral reefs. The W200’s anti-water drop coating also allows the LCD screen to remain free from condensation, for filming to be done easily without wiping the screens in damp conditions. The lens also features anti-fog coating for steam to disperse for clear and sharp videos and pictures even after coming out of the water.
To capture amazing underwater footage easily, the W200 also has an Aqua Mode setting, which automatically sets the ideal parameters for the bright and clear underwater video. Despite being slim and compact, it is also shock-proof and dust-proof. Therefore, it is the perfect addition to a backpack for any trip and durable for worry-free family vacations with young children. In addition, it also comes with a built-in USB arm to share your adventure with your loved ones while you are away.
Innovative technology ensures that filming on-the-go still produces image quality and brightness. The W200 is built with a 5-megapixel BSI (Back Side Illuminated) CMOS sensor, which delivers double sensitivity of conventional CMOS sensors, capturing footage with dramatically reduced image noise and distortion. Along with this, the W200 has a bright F2.2 lens which provides the ability to shoot during low-light conditions for stunningly clear and sharp images. The camcorder shoots in Full HD resolution to 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 manage your video files and be creative with them too. With Samsung’s Record Pause feature, users can pause briefly during filming and resume from the exact same moment. When filming is complete, footage will be stored in the same file, which makes uploading and sharing hassle-free. To enjoy more fun with filming, the W200 has two special Smart Filter features. Vignetting allows users to fade the edges of shots and Fish-Eye setting creates an arty, distorted feel for unique and interesting footage.
The W200 is the ideal and reliable Pocket Cam for anyone who wants to experience life to the fullest and share adventurous moments with family and friends. You will never miss a moment with W200!
W200 is now available in Red and Titanium at $299 at all major retail outlets.
