Samsung HMX-H300 Camcorder Review
The Samsung HMX-H300 did not capture video with the same level of sharpness as the competition from Panasonic and Canon. At best, the camcorder managed a horizontal sharpness of 750 lw/ph and a vertical sharpness of 550 lw/ph. These numbers are decent for a mid-range HD camcorder, but they are not in the upper echelon of camcorders, which is where we'd place the Canon HF M40 and Panasonic HDC-TM90 based on their sharpness results.
The most disappointing revelation from this sharpness test is the fact that the HMX-H300 did worse than its predecessor, the HMX-H200. The numbers weren't that much worse—only by 50 lw/ph both horizontally and vertically—but we never like to see a decrease in performance from a newer model. More on how we test video sharpness.
