Ok, so I don't know why there are negative reviews on this item,, I have purchased and extensively tested like 5 different cameras in this class over the past few years and I am very impressed with this camera.

I have been using a Flip Mino for personal use as well as work related video that I use with After Effects so that may tell you my stringent requirements.

This camera has video stabilization, the Mino doesn't.
This camera has replaceable sd card storage, the Mino has 8gb built in. The advantage to the W300 is that you can take it on vacation and you can bring extra storage without bringing a laptop to dump your footage onto.

Most waterproof cameras are actually designed for still pictures under water so the sound quality is muffled by the membrane that protects the camera.
The W300 has excellent sound pickup as good as the Mino! Most waterproof cameras are really just rated about 3-5 feet submersible. The W300 is rated for 16Ft so you can take it into the deep end. Shock proof and dustproof make it an excellent choice for river rafting or trips to the beach.

I wish I had this camera when we went to Disneyland last summer and my Mino was almost ruined on Splash Mountian. it was out of service until it dried out.

last but not least is image quality. Mino is 720p W300 is full HD 1080P side by side video in a dimly lit room showed grain artifacts in the Flip Mino but not the W300 contrast is much better in the W300.

The Mino cannot take still images. The W300 takes Excellent 5mp photos even in a dim room and the focus is automatic and the camera will wait to snap until the image is optimum.

Now the bad

Well, if i have to complain about anything,, it doesn't come with a HDMI output cable, but there is a micro usb port to plug one into. But I never used the HDMI on any camera.

I like this product quite a bit so far. It has some very nice pictures and video (the 2 pic of the baby are mine). The 4 stars is because it takes a long time to micro focus (once it gets there it's beautiful), and sometimes just focusing at all is a little hard, but most of the time it's pretty good. I have not taken this to any sports or anything, just filming my kids running around has worked great. In the photo mode, I wish I could force it to take the picture, even when it's not ready and get some good depth of field. The underwater video and pictures turn out really nice. Picture color and quality is good, but I tend to like the color in my pictures to be a little more saturated and have more contrast and this has a really nice feel in the photo. The camera is very easy to use (menu and everything) and the battery life is pretty good. It does take a little time to charge and I'm not sure if a larger card would ware the battery out faster or not... mine is a 2 gig card I got out of my phone (I get about 17 min. full HD 1080 on this 2G card I have and a lot of pictures). The sound is really great. It rarely has the loud noises that underwater cameras have and it doesn't have any issues above the water. Oh, the color is more yellow/orange rather than this reddish orange the picture shows.
Overall I am very happy with the camera/camcorder.
From what I could tell, the differences from the W200 and W300 are... Camera color, 5 Meters waterproof depth instead of 3, Slightly different circle around the lense (product design) but I am trying to get a wide angle to add to it and wanted the complete circle around the lense.
Ok, hope this review helps. :) Hapyy picturing!!

Before you raise your expectations, let me just say this camera is a camera for high definition action - not Hollywood film production. Recently I bought this camera at Best Buy (sorry Amazon, I love ya but I needed it last second, same day use) and I planned to use it for on-ride POV's. So far I must say that my experience has been phenomenal. Never have I ever seen such a great piece of digital technology for $100. Let me just rate you my experience:

Size/Compatibility - 5
This is because it is big enough to hold, yet small enough to fit in one's pocket.

Sound - 3
Not the best sound in the world, it can easily pick up wind and humming noises, but just about the same as my three year old $600 Sony HD Camcorder.

Water Proof - ?
I haven't needed it yet. Again I needed this for Roller Coasters, not for a scuba mission.

Shockproof - ?
Haven't dropped it (and I still need it so I won't intentionally test it in case it doesn't work).

Video Quality - 5
It says 1080p (and for camcorder not Hollywood Blu-Ray) it really is. It looks beautiful.

Low Light - 4
It seems to pick up well in dark rides, sees just a little under what the human eye detects. Up to advanced camcorder technology in my opinion.

Anti-Shake - 4
This doesn't prevent shaking, please don't think it does. It smooths out the motion to make it seem less shaky.

Internal Memory - 0
Seriously there is no internal memory. Get an SD (my advice micro SD, since that's what it takes, with a regular SD card adapter).

Charger - 2
It is a USB plug. There isn't a cord for it. It is a USB that plugs directly into the computer or other USB charging station. My worry is the plug on the camera will break. So far so good though.
