Samsung HMX-H300Camcorder Review

 

The Samsung HMX-H300 is a mid-range HD camcorder with a 30x optical zoom and a cheap price tag ($399 MSRP). It doesn't have a ton of features, and its video performance in low light was mediocre at best, but its compact design and budget-friendly price...

A mid-range HD camcorder with a 30x optical zoom and a cheap price tag

Smooth motion; Simple, easy-to-use design

Terrible low-light noise; Sharpness wasn’t great

The Samsung HMX-H300 is not one of the better HD camcorders we’ve reviewed, even when you consider its budget-friendly $400 price tag. While Panasonic and Canon made strides in improving their mid-range HD camcorder line, Samsung stayed put, as is...

Samsung H300 Long Zoom Full HD Camcorder Review

 

Today I am checking out the Samsung H300 Long Zoom full HD Camcorder. The H300 is a compact camcorder that has a nice size touchscreen and tons of zoom. If you are after a camcorder that can get you right up in the action at events the H300 may be...

Samsung HMX-H300 HD Camcorder Review

 

Samsung brands the HMX-H300 as the "ultimate HD family camcorder." Does that mean it's a great value promising HD video at a low price? Or, is it just an indication that serious videographers should stay away? Find out in this full high-definition...

Solid build quality ; Decent low light performance ; 30x optical zoom

Mediocre picture quality ; Subpar audio pick-up ; Manual lens cover

As it stands, the H300 is not a bad buy for the family’s first camcorder, owing much of that to its solid build, but only if it's available on sale. Serious videographers, however, might want to venture further up the price chart for their next device.

Below average

 

Image stabilization is not nearly sufficient for 30X zoom. It's much easier to get decent video with my new Panasonic camera with 40X zoom, than with Samsung HMX-H300 when zooming 30X, or even 20X. Another problem with this camcorder is that it records...

30X optical zoom, good video quality in daylight, HD Time-Lapse Recording

Image stabilization not sufficient; sound problems
