Samsung HMX-W300 Waterproof Camcorder Review
Like most cheap camcorders, the Samsung HMX-W300 is meant to be turned on, pointed at a subject, and used to shoot video without any complications. The camcorder handles this task fairly well, but it wasn't perfect. The buttons on the back of the W300 aren't all labeled well, and some of the camcorder's features aren't discussed in the tiny user guide that ships with the W300. The grip of the camcorder is better than last year's W200 by a hair, which is something that should help with underwater use, but we want to see a better locking system for the port covers on the base and side of the camcorder. Overall, this is a durable camcorder that feels stronger than its $159 price tag suggests.
