Samsung HMX-W300 Review

 

If you believe point-and-shoot cameras replaced the need for camcorders, and smartphones replaced the need for point-and-shoots, Samsung's HMX-W300 handheld camcorder may look like an antiquity. But its appeal lies more than skin deep. For those who...

Inexpensive ; Small and easy to hold ; Simple user interface

Poor to average image quality ; Auto share isn’t exactly auto share ; Less than attractive design

For anyone not willing to make a big investment in a hand-held camcorder yet, this damage-resistant, inexpensive, flexible device could fit the bill.

Samsung HMX-W300

 

If you're looking for a cheap, waterproof camcorder then your search is complete. Buy the Samsung HMX-W300.

If you’re planning to spend less than $200 on a camcorder, you can’t do much better than the Samsung HMX-W300.

Samsung W300

 

The idea behind a pocket camcorder is that you want something affordable and portable, but without overlooking the image and video quality. Samsung clearly recognizes this because it has created this ultra-compact camcorder. The image-stabilization...

You can expand the Samsung W300's memory up to 64GB to store hours and hours of HD video footage

This camcorder isn't compatible with Apple products, so you can't view your videos on a Mac

This Samsung video camera is the perfect handheld size. It has built-in USB and HDMI ports. It's easy to transfer your videos and photos to a computer, and both have good image quality.

Very disappointed

 

Got tired of waiting for the boat from China to deliver the Panasonic HX-WA3 so I bought this as a refurb for $50 along with a Samsung 16gb class 10 micro sd card. My other camcorder is a Panasonic HC v700. Obviously the Panny knocks the socks off the...

Small size, turns on quick, supposedly waterproof. Use this in places you wouldn't take videos from a cell phone

This may shoot at 1080p but it isn't crisp at all. Viewing on an lcd panel 20" or larger you will notice edges are blurry

Unbelievable - literally

 

Seems like great value for the price. I thought it was too good to be true - turns out I was right

This is supposed to be Water, Shock and Dust proof ; Well, I have had it in my hands for 2 days and I read all the instructions and warnings to make sure I was using it correctly and safely. I took it to the pool - a very clean water environment - to...

Like the camcorder

 

I bought this for my wife who loves to take pictures every where we go. So far the camera is nice and yes it is both a camera and a camcorder. We have not tried the waterproof feature but I know it is shock proof as I dropped it the first day I had it...

Great camcorder

 

8 gig card gives me about 2hrs of video 1 hr at highest setting.

This thing is great. Fun to use, simple to learn. I've had no problems with it. Should come with a memory card

Does not come with a sd card. Which you need. Had to read this on manufactures site

Great Camera

 

Bought the camera for my son for Christmas. Also bought the accesory kit for the camera but was dissapointed that a power cord was not included nor was a manual. My son and daughter (ages 23 & 26) played around with it for about a half an hour and had...

Easy to operate ; Great clear pictures

NO INSTRUCTION MANUAL ; No power cord
