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...

Samsung HMX-H300

 

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...

Great video quality ; Lots of zoom ; Takes still shots

Camera shutter is slow ; Can't do video and still shots at once

The Samsung H300 is a nice camcorder with great video and photo quality that lacks a few features I would like to see at this price point. The quality is certainly there in the video and photos so if you can live without some of the other features this...

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.

Samsung HMX-H300BP review

 

Last month we saw the Samsung HMX-Q10 budget camcorder, which could be used in either hand thanks to a clever inverting LCD screen and had impressive low-light performance. The HMX-G300BP doesn't have the fancy ambidextrous features, but has the...

Fair video quality and good low-light performance make this a reasonable camcorder, but the HMX-Q10 is better value overall

Great video camera. Used first time to record my sons senior soccer night game. Awsome clarity with zoom feature. Easy to use and download. Charged before game and battery held up through the cold without any issues. Would purchase again.
