High-Quality HD Video Recording with 30x Zoom Lens
The compact Samsung H300 makes it easy to record HD videos when you're on vacation, on an adventure, or anywhere else. The camcorder records full HD in 1,920-by-1,080-pixel resolution and regular HD in 1,280-by-720-pixel resolution in the standard H.264 video format, making it easy to edit in the editing application of your choice. It features autofocus, auto shutter, auto and manual white balance, backlight compensation, and manual shutter speeds from 1/60 to 1/10,000 seconds, so you can get the video you want.

A 30x zoom Schneider Kreuznach Varioplan HD lens lets the Samsung H300 shoot crisp, sharp video. With a 30x optical zoom and 300x digital zoom, you'll be able to get up-close footage even when you're far away.

The camcorder also records still images at up to 2,944-by-1,656-pixel resolution in JPEG format.

3-Inch LCD Touchscreen for Easy Navigation
The bright, high-resolution 3-inch LCD touchscreen gives you a clean, crisp image that is saturated with color and detail, so you can always shoot with confidence in external light conditions. The touchscreen also gives you quick and easy access to all menus and settings, making it easy to select the features you need.

Optical Image Stabilization for Clear Shots
The H300 camcorder features optical image stabilization, which adjusts and shifts the lens to compensate for hand-shake and body movement, ensuring a steady shot every time.

HD Time-Lapse Recording Special Effect
A special HD time-lapse recording setting lets you create a video file that speeds up the passage of time. This is done by taking still frames at preset intervals and putting them back together in sequential order for the special effect.

Backside-Illuminated Sensor for Better Sensitivity
The H300 employs a backside-illuminated, 1/4-inch CMOS sensor that delivers double the sensitivity of conventional CMOS sensors for better low-light recording, and reduces image noise and distortion.

Clear Audio Recording in AAC Audio Format
The camcorder has a built-in microphone with a wind cut feature to minimize distracting wind noise. Audio is recorded in AAC format, which achieves better sound quality than MP3. The camcorder also has a built-in speaker so you can hear your sound when you review footage.

Size Name: No Memory
I spent a long time researching camcorders, read a lot reviews and looked at a lot of test footage before ultimately buying this model.

Many of the better reviews I read compared this model to models several hundred dollars more expensive, which I took to mean that this model was a significant value at this price.

It was a gamble on my part that I think paid off as I am very happy overall with this unit.

There are thee consistent criticism I have seen for this camcorder. I took them very seriously when I was deciding what unit to buy. Now that I have hands on experience with the unit I wanted to share my experience regarding these criticisms:

- The camera records its own zoom: This is true but I don't find it distracting. In fact I find it to be a cool effect. You should really only be zooming with the camera on if you are intentionally calling attention to the camera anyway. This is a consumer camera. It is not intended for professional use. The "zoom sound" is really only audible in a very quiet room. I recorded some footage outside on a non-windy day and the ambient noise outside covered up the sounds of the zoom. For reference, I watched some footage I took with my miniDV camera and noticed that on all of the footage you could hear the whir of the tape motor. Probably the zoom would be more noticeable if the tape motor wasn't constantly going. At any rate the noise doesn't bother me on either camera and the miniDV footage was far noisier. I don't see how this issue would be a deterrent. If you are shooting a movie or any professional product you need a professional camera anyway and you also would be using a separate sound recording system.

- The camera isn't great in low light: This is also true.

Just got this little thing of beauty tonight and I'm very very pleased. It completely blows my old-school camcorders away and is effectively 1/4 the cost in today's terms. Easy to use and full 1080p HD. Picture and sound quality look great on playback on my 51" plasma. File format works perfectly for playback on my PS3.

What a great little device! Oh - and you can't hear the zoom as claimed by another reviewer - there must be something wrong with his unit.

Arived on time and in good shape. 30X zoom is good. I like that you can select 1080i, 720p, or even 480p. 720p looks fine on our 37 inch Samsung 720p LCD HDTV and the files are a lot smaller. I also like that you can drag and drop files directly from the SD card to your PC - no conversion required. Screen on camcorder is very difficult to see in bright sunlight.

This is a fine little camcorder for the money. It would be nice if there was a 'video in' jack, but then it would probably be two hundred dollars more...very easy to use with my Mac.

30X zoom is nice, and video quality is quite acceptable, as long as there is enough light, and you are not zooming full range; not as good in low light. There are 2 things about this product, though, that made me return it, and give it 2 stars.
It records the sound of it's own zoom, and, to the lesser degree, the auto focus. If outside sounds are not laud, this sound is quite annoying, and spoils the video.
The image stabilization is not nearly sufficient when zooming beyond about 20X; it's clearly inferior in this respect to other camcorders with similar features, like my wife's Panasonic.
I wouldn't recommend this product. Samsung has to do a lot of work to refine it.

Size Name: 16GB Internal Flash
The following comments are based on four months of use...

MPEG-4 Video Format: Use of MPEG-4 (not AVCHD) was a major purchasing decision for me. If you use Mac, Linux, or plan to do much video editing on your PC, the MPEG-4 video format used by the HMX-H304 is much easier to work with than the AVCHD format common with other camcorders. The AVCHD format generates MUCH larger files than MPEG-4 and isn't as widely supported by video editing software packages. To be fair to AVCHD, the larger file sizes are related to the metadata features available with AVCHD -features that don't interest me. See [...] for additional background.

Memory: Glad I stepped up to the H304 to get the extra 16-GB of internal memory. I also purchased a 32-GB Class 10 SDHC card. 48-GB means I'll be recording at full HD all the time and not worry about storage.

Testing: Started the first test day with full charge. Shot some footage at a short awards ceremony for kids. Later, some coverage of a basketball game. Not the full game, but testing out the auto-focus, ability to keep up with action, and zoom. Finally, recorded an entire sunset in real time.

For a first test trip, I took the HMX-H304 on a 4 day/3 night camping trip. Started trip with full charge and never recharged during the entire trip. Captured a total of about 1 hour of footage over the 4 day period. I didn't run out of battery, I had simply done all the recording I was interested in capturing. Appreciated how quickly the camera could go from completely off, flip open view screen, and be recording in < 5 seconds. Was able to get some good critter shots (fish, birds, beaver, and a snake) with the strong zoom capabilities. Outdoor colors also well captured.
