"Budget Buy"

The footage produced by the MultiProof W200 is not as good as the one from the latest Flip Ultra, for example, but it's excellent for such an affordable device. Expert Reviews praised its low light performance and overall sharpness, while its water- and shock-proofing are fantastic extras to have at the price and earn it a 'Best Buy' award.

Value for money: 8 out of 10 points, "Recommended"

Samsung's W200 may not break any innovation records, but unlike most other waterproof pocket Internet camcorders, it offers a great low light performance, thanks to its big back-lit CMOS sensor, and it has an Aqua filter for underwater filming. Trusted Reviews acknowledge that it lacks many manual controls, but they say it's good value at less than £100.

IT Reviews

4 out of 5 points

Whether Samsung's W200 HD is any better than a smartphone at capturing video and still images is debatable, but IT Reviews point out that it has the added appeal of a rugged build, and being waterproof, it's more versatile. There's no built-in storage, and the shutter button was stiff, but they were impressed with the user interface, and overall, they say it's a nice gadget to take away.
