Samsung HMX-W300 Waterproof Camcorder Review
If you're not looking for a waterproof camcorder, then you probably shouldn't be researching the HMX-W300 at all. That's the camcorder's niche, and it's the primary reason it is a successful device. Samsung won us over last year with the HMX-W200, the previous incarnation of a rugged, waterproof camcorder from Samsung, and the HMX-W300 is a tad better. It can go deeper underwater (by six feet), it has a better button design, and it has a few more features for users to play around with. What the camcorder doesn't have is manual exposure controls of any kind, so if you want a model that offers more fine-tuning you should look elsewhere.
