10 Reasons Against

Expert Reviews Are Poor

This video camera received a score of 40% from expert review website datatid.dk. It seems that experts really don't rate this Samsung video camera very highly.

Not Full HD

The HMX-W200 is not Full HD. Most of the other camcorders of a similar age and spec to the HMX-W200 are also not Full HD.

Video cameras which are Full HD that might be worth considering include the PXW-FS7K[pl_2963110_price], or the PMW-150[pl_2251125_price] both from Sony or the Polaroid ID975HD[plb_2962208_price].

Does Not Have an Image Stabiliser

The Samsung HMX-W200 does not have an image stabiliser, although this is within the context that most of the other video cameras that were launched around the same time as the HMX-W200 also do not have an image stabiliser.

We compared this video camera to all the other video cameras with an image stabiliser and we think the Thinkware TW-X500[plb_2962221_price], the JVC GY-HM150[plb_1772453_price], or the Polaroid iD1880[plb_2962197_price] is also worth considering.

Does Not Have an HDMI Port

Like most of the other video cameras that came out around the same time as the HMX-W200, the Samsung HMX-W200 does not have an HDMI port.

Alternative video cameras which also have an HDMI port that you might also want to consider include the PXW-FS7K[pl_2963110_price], or the PMW-300[pl_2132091_price] both from Sony or the ION Air Pro Lite ActION[plb_2962206_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have an Interchangeable Lens

Like most of the other video cameras that have been on the market for a comparable time to the HMX-W200, the Samsung HMX-W200 does not have an interchangeable lens.

We compared this video camera to all the other video cameras with an interchangeable lens and we think the PMWEX3[pl_1584436_price], the HXR-NX30[pl_1584491_price], or the PMW100[pl_1584492_price] all from Sony is also worth considering.

Does Not Have a Built-In Display

The HMX-W200 does not have a built-in display. Most of the other video cameras that are a similar age to the HMX-W200 do have a built-in display.

We compared all the other video cameras which also have a night mode to this video camera and we think the F-500G[pl_2962220_price], or the F-500[pl_2962207_price] both from HP or the Transcend DrivePro 200[plb_2962204_price] is also worth considering.
