10 Reasons Against

Expert Reviews Are Poor

Expert review site datatid.dk scored this camcorder 40 out of 100. It seems that video camera experts really don't rate this Samsung camcorder very highly.

Does Not Have an HDMI

Like most of the other comparable spec camcorders that have been on the market for around the same time as the HMX-W200, the Samsung HMX-W200 does not have an HDMI.

Other camcorders which also have an HDMI that you might also want to look at include the PMW-F3, or the NEX-FS100 (£1,199.00) both from Sony or the JVC GZ-R415 (£244.45) which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have an Image Stabilizer

Most camcorders that have been around for around the same time as the HMX-W200 do not have an image stabilizer. The HMX-W200 is no exception to this as it too does not have an image stabilizer.

We think you might also be interested in other camcorders which also have an image stabilizer including the Sony NEX-FS100 (£1,199.00), the JVC GZ-R415 (£244.45), or the Panasonic HC-X1E (£2,390.00) which also has a higher rating.

Not Full HD

Most comparable spec camcorders that have been on the market for around the same time as the HMX-W200 are not Full HD. The Samsung HMX-W200 is no exception to this as it too is not Full HD.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Interchangeable Lens

Most comparable spec video cameras that are a similar age to the HMX-W200 do not have an interchangeable lens. The HMX-W200 is no exception to this as it too does not have an interchangeable lens.

Other video cameras which also have an interchangeable lens that you might also want to look at include the Sony NEX-FS100 (£1,199.00) which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have a Built-In Display

Like most of the other video cameras that are a comparable age to the HMX-W200, the Samsung HMX-W200 does not have a built-in display.

It is worth also looking at alternative camcorders which also have a built-in display including the PMW-F3, or the NEX-FS100 (£1,199.00) both from Sony or the JVC GZ-R415 (£244.45) which also has a higher rating.

The Samsung HMX-W200 does not have a built-in projector, although this is within the context that most of the other recently released video cameras also do not have a built-in projector.

Bought as a present for my husband. He loves it. It is so small that it is just so easy to have on you all the time. Pics ok too - but then we're no camera experts.
