Samsung W200 Anyone who’s in need of a small and tough camera may be interested to hear about the Samsung W200. Just announced today, the W200 is being marketed towards people who love to brave the harsh outdoors. This camera is waterproof, shockproof, and dustproof. We don’t know how it will fair against a battering ram though.

The Samsung W200 can be taken underwater for up to 3 meters (almost 10 feet). While submerged, it can take video with no problem. The LCD screen is also immune to condensation, so you don’t have to worry about constantly cleaning the 2.3-inch screen.

This camera can also take full HD video. Still images can be taken with a resolution of 5.5 megapixels. It comes with a built-in USB arm so you don’t have to worry about carrying around an extra cable to transfer pictures to a computer. Samsung promises a battery life two hours.

The Samsung W200 will be available in May for $159.
