Samsung HMX-H300: Picture 1 regular

About Samsung HMX-H300

The Samsung HMX-H300BN/XAA is designed to be able to capture any occasion faithfully, so that when you play back your memories there are no distractions or difficulties, only the chance to relive a memorable time with the clarity and quality of seeing it for the first time. The HMX-H300 includes features that make it even easier to achieve amazing quality in an instant.

The Face Detection function makes sure that the faces of up to six people in the shot are kept in focus at all times so that clarity isn't sacrificed in busy scenes such as parties or concerts. The upgraded Smart Auto feature automatically selects the right shooting mode depending on factors such as brightness, subject and color for the best footage possible.

It also features the new and innovative Record Pause function, allowing users to briefly pause in recording, before resuming recording in the same file, saving time when editing. Another key feature is the 30x Optical Zoom available on the HMX-H300 lens, which records in greater definition than any of its competitors in its class and creates incredible close-ups from long distances. This helps create memorable videos no matter how far you are from the action, whether it's filming the big game or a school stage production.

Samsung's own research shows how important it is for families to be able to capture as much as possible of their once-in-a-lifetime occasions; the HMX-H300 is therefore built with an efficient battery that delivers up to three hours of filming time, so users can shoot for longer without worrying about missing the vital moment.

The HMX-H300 is also built with a 5 Megapixel 1/4" (1/6.3", 1.75M Effective) BSI (Back Side Illuminated) CMOS sensor, which is twice as sensitive as a regular CMOS sensor. This means that noise and image distortion are reduced and video quality in low-light conditions, such as dimly-lit restaurants or night time scenes, is dramatically improved. Similarly, the HMX-H300 series also includes an advanced OIS Duo (Upgraded Optical Image Stabilization) system to ensure steady and stable footage by compensating for minor hand and body movements, even when walking around.

The HMX-H300 also has a 3" Touch LCD screen, which is 20% larger than standard displays, to make sharing moments easier, in natural color and clear detail. The intuitive user interface makes the camcorder fun and easy to use. The HMX-H300's design has been streamlined and made even more compact so that users can hold the camcorder easily, enabling them to divert their attention to their subject and the occasion. The HMX-H300 also offers a still picture function so there is no need to carry around a second camera to get the perfect image.

The Samsung HMX-H300 is popular because customers like the following qualities of the Samsung HMX-H300: Bright display, Built-in speakers, Durable, Inexpensive, Lightweight and Realistic color

Overall, a fantastic buy.

The HD is excellent, zoom is great, and the camera is easy to operate. It's comparatively inexpensive to similar cameras. It is small, durable, and has a generic tripod hole to fit many tripods.

However, a few very small thing that bugs me is the stupid noise it makes when it turns on. I'm sure there's a way to turn it off because it can get mighty awkward when at places such as the Vietnam Memorial where it is dead quiet and all everyone hears all of the sudden is a silly song played every time I open the thing to take a picture. Also, I wish there was a way to plug in an external microphone because there are times where if the surrounding area is too loud, the mic will start to whine a bit and give this artificial sounding, industrial hum.

Very Good Camcorder

By

My wife bought me this for Christmas last year. Everything was easy to use right out of the box. The touch screen works well and all the features work very well. The video quality is excellent for everyday stuff, however I'm still working on trying to take sports videos without experiencing judder or blurry images. The built in digital camera for still photos is adequate as well. I rarely use it for stills though. Overall this is a very good product at a reasonable price.

Waste of Money

By

The finish on the display is shiny so if you're recording outside in the sun, all you can see is your own reflection, you can't see what you're recording. The display is also very dark with no way to adjust the brightness of the display itself. We've had to send it in for display repair 2 times already and we've just had it a year. VERY disappointed and wish we could get our money back!

Very user friendly, I love it!

By

So easy to use, you just open it to turn it on, close it to shut down. No lens cap to lose or have in the way, just a slide- switch to open or close the lens. You can take take videos or still shots without switching anything, just push the photo button or the video button. Touch screen makes it a snap to preview or delete your files. And high def is beautiful.

Great Camcorder for the price

By

I am so thrilled with this little camcorder. It is so easy to use! I was actually going to purchase a lower model, but the salesperson recommended this one. I am so glad he did. I purchased it to record a recital. Sound is great and so is the video. Full HD at a fraction of other brands. So much easier to use than the old tapes. It works just like a digital camera.

Easy to handle even for a beginner

By

The small compact size makes it easy to handle. The automatic focus helps to create beutiful recordings. The cost for the numerous features made it a great value. The light weight makes it easy to transport-even all the way to Asia!

Great camera

By

Great camera I picked up at bayfest 2011 from the local bestbuy and man its awesome I have some amazing video from the concerts even from a little ways out in the crowd. The audio picks up great, it takes good still photos and image stabilization is great too. The only complaint I have is they haven't ported an Android firmware for it yet that would allow on camera photo and video editing and effects. Oh and did i mention its small enough I can carry it in my pocket.
