Smart Video Functions

The HMX-H300 series 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 series 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 colour 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.

Innovative Optical Technology

Another key feature is the 30x Optical Zoom available on the HMX-H300 series 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 series 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 series 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 Stabilisation) system to ensure steady and stable footage by compensating for minor hand and body movements, even when walking around.

The HMX-H300 series also has a 3” Touch LCD screen, which is 20% larger than standard displays, to make sharing moments easier, in natural colour 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 series also offers a still picture function so there is no need to carry around a second camera to get the perfect image.
