Summary: Great if you get a good price the HMX 190 200 and 300 W all seem about the same. I own all three for snorkeling. Can often be picked up real cheap used on ebay. I own about 6 have given away another six as gifts. hd quality pictures, movies and sound. Easy transfers and recharge.
Summary: I borrowed this camera from my brother for my trip to FL. I followed all of the instructions for taking it under water, and IT BROKE. Everything was sealed, yet water still got in. I DO NOT recommend this for underwater use.
Summary: I've had this little camcorder a few weeks now and I love it! Shoots in 720 and 1080 HD plus it captures still photos (which can be done during recording or playback). The picture gets a little grainy in low light or when you zoom in but nothing that makes it unwatchable.
Summary: It's OK. I had a Flip video recorder for several years that just died on me. This was the replacement and the Flip video recorder was much better in my opinion. This one has better audio, but the Flip was easier to use and the downloaded program for putting the videos on your computer was MUCH...
Power button is a little argumentative, but other than that it's great

Summary: Bought this as a gift for my wife, and the only complaint we've had in over a year is that the power button is not very responsive. We have developed a trick where we turn it on it's side and give it a flick and it works, but if you don't it's like the button is broken.
