New underwater camcorder to be released by Samsung28 April 2011 08:35:46
A pocket camcorder that can be used underwater has been unveiled by Samsung.
Called the W200, the device captures full HD video and also comes with anti-fog glass, anti-water drop coating for the lens and an Aqua Mode setting, reports techradar.com.
Users can record their videos and images onto memory cards thanks to the camera’s MicroSD card slot.
Other features include a 5MP BSI CMOS sensor and an F2.2 bright lens for taking shots in low-light.
Videos can be played back on the W200's 2.3-inch LCD screen while autofocus is also included.
It is expected to hit shelves in the UK this May.
The news comes the same week as it was announced that Toshiba is to enter the underwater camcorder market for the first time.
It has unveiled the Camileo BW10, which is capable of recording footage up to full HD 1920 x 1080 at 30fps, geeky-gadgets.com reported.
