Compared to its immediate predecessor, the H200BN, it's got a 30x instead of a 20x zoom lens. It's also thinner and lighter, more like a HMX-QX10, but with the longer life battery of the H200BN. Oh, and this model officially has USB charging, so you don't need to take yet another A/C power adapter on that trip to Spain. Just plug it into your computer's USB port with an appropriate cord.
Like the H200BN, it has a five megapixel back side integrated (BSI) CMOS sensor. The low light performance of this sensor is fantastic, and much better than the 2.2 megapixel front side sensor in the H100N. You really can't tell the difference in bright light, but in dim light yes, the newer sensor is much better.
Things missing from the H300BN but present on the H200BN are the quick menu, record, and zoom buttons on the flip-out display screen. That's unfortunate, because I really used the quick menu and record buttons to verify settings before shooting. A lot.
Another missing button is the one-touch backlight button. Instead, you will need to use the +/- EV control in the menu.
Are there any new tricks? Yes. The H300BN has a dual electronic + optical image stabilization mode and a "Super C" mode that changes the shutter speed from 1/60 to 1/15 of a second. This is great for recording relatively static subjects at night.
The Mode and Still Photo buttons are smaller on the H300BN as well. But since the whole unit went on a diet, there just isn't space for the larger buttons!
As of this writing, there is a supply of Samsung refurbished units with a 90 day warranty at a bargain price. If you've wanted a Full HD 60i camcorder, seriously consider one of these.
Five stars because this is a great refinement to a low-cost camcorder with performance features such as a 30x zoom, 1920x1080x60i recording, a long-lasting battery, and now dual electronic + optical image stabilization.
(Videos there) The battery only lasts 2hrs now, but I really can't complain, and I can't see a good replacement for it.
I've had to replace the Memory card once, and it did flip out once. (Lost it's mind on Auto Focus)
But other than that it's been a faithfull Camera.
I can't see going to 4k because hardly everyone has a 4k computer monitor to watch videos on anyway.
(And it's just Church services anyway LOL)
God bless and I'm glad I made this purchase.
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.
