Samsung's mid-range H300 HD camcorder won't shoot the best video out there, but the overall feature set is somewhat attractive. The 1080i video quality should be decent considering the $400 price tag, but its sensor has an effective size of 1/6.3", which makes it one of the smaller sensors among HD camcorders. Even so, the 3-inch touch LCD and 3-hour battery life are generous, and the 30x zoom lens could even make it a solid option for shooting sports in high-def. The H300 records exclusively to SD/SDHC cards; also check out the H303, H304, and H305 configurations, which all come with built-in flash memory.
