Samsung HMX-H300 Camcorder Review
Overall, we didn't mind the way the Samsung HMX-H300 captured moving subjects. There were some problems with sharpness and clarity, but motion consistently looked smooth. Artifacting was more prominent than what we saw from the competition, but the amount was still very low. There was some discoloration and blur in both of the rotating pinwheels in our motion test as well, but, again, the presence of these traits wasn't all that distracting.
The H300 records all Full HD video using a 60i frame rate, but a 60p rate is used when shooting 1280 x 720 HD video. The camcorder does not have a slow motion mode, but it does offer a time lapse record setting. This lack of alternate frame rate options is one reason the Panasonic HDC-TM90 (Full HD 60p recording) and Canon HF M40 (24p and 30p recording) may be more appealing models for some users. More on how we test motion.
