Here's a comparison of both cameras (PDF Format)

H300 Images. Notice how the buttons on this model are set. It seems the Q10 is easier to use and manipulate.

Even with optical stabilization, it's impossible to get a good shot with 30x zoom without a tripod. Scorbing, congrats on the camera the footage looks really good.

I exchanged the Q10 for the HMX-H300 with the 30x Zoom. I must say I am impressed with its quality and optics. I will be posting test videos tomorrow since I am off and will be shooting all over the place. I might go to St. Augustine or Sea World.

The reason I exchanged it was mainly because of the battery. Battery on the Q10 lasted only 100 minutes (1hr and 10 mins). Battery on the H300 lasts 180 minutes (3 hrs) and of course, the 30x Zoom which will come in handy when the shuttle launches next week!

Both the Q10 and the H300 have the same exact technical abilities as far as picture and video quality is concerned.

** Some samples of the H300 in action:

Another great H300 sample I found: http://youtu.be/5_vsW0h7uto

** Not my videos

Stay tuned. Tomorrow I will post my own H300 samples for you to see.

Default Conversation with Samsung Rep About Both Cameras

Interesting conversation I had with Samsung via Live Chat just now in regards to these two models. Here's the conversation:

Please wait for a Samsung Agent to respond.

You are now chatting with 'Raven'. There will be a brief survey at the end of our chat to share feedback on my performance today.

Your Issue ID for this chat is LTK4380785065X

Raven: Hi, thanks for reaching out to Samsung tech support. How can I help you today?
John: Hello Raven. I got a quick question for you regarding the Samsung HMX-H300 and the Samsung HMX-Q10
Raven: Hello John.
Raven: Sure, please go ahead.
John: Is it true that the Samsung HMX-Q10 has better video quality than the HMX-H300?
John: I noticed the effective pixels on the H300 is 1.75 and on the Q10 is 2.07, yet the H300 is $100.00 more than the Q10
Raven: No, HMX-H300 has the better video quality than HMX-Q10.
John: So why does the H300 have less pixels than the Q10? Wouldn't less pixels mean less quality?
Raven: No, more pixels would give you better picture quality.
Raven: But the lens used in both of them are different.
Raven: In HMX-H300, Schneider Kreuznach Varioplan HD lens is used.
Raven: Where as in HMX-Q10 a normal lens is used.
Raven: Hence, HMX-H300 has better video quality than HMX-Q10.
John: I am looking at the Q10 right now and it says on the front of it: Schneider Kreuznach Varioplan HD. So is that a less quality lens than the one on the H300?
John: here's where I am seeing that at:
John: http://ces.crunchgear.com/2011/01/sa...0-camcorder-2/
Raven: Okay. Please allow me to check with it.
John: OK. Thank you
Raven: Thanks.
Raven: Thanks for waiting.
Raven: I am sorry to inform you that Schneider Kreuznach Varioplan HD lens is available in HMX-H300.
Raven: Let me provide you with a link which gives you the complete information about it.
John: OK cool.
Raven: http://www.samsung.com/us/system/con...HW300_spec.jpg
Raven: I am sorry for the typo.
Raven: The correct link is as follows.
Raven: http://www.samsung.com/us/photograph...N/XAA-features
Raven: Are you able to open the link?
John: Yes
Raven: Thanks for confirmation.
Raven: Please refer the link to get the correct information.
John: So the Varioplan lens on the Q10 is just a standard lens? is that what U are indicating?
Raven: Yes, you are correct. The lens on HMX-Q10 is a standard lens.
Raven: Let me also provide you with a link which gives you the complete information about it.
John: ok
Raven: The link is as follows.
Raven: http://www.samsung.com/us/photograph...N/XAA-features
Raven: Are you able to open the link.
John: yes thank you
Raven: You're welcome. Is there anything else I can assist you with?
John: No. Thank you. You were very helpful.
John: Have a good day!
Raven: You're Welcome. You too.
Raven: Thank you for chatting with us.

hey thx for the upload. i was gonna get the h200 until i saw the jvc for the ridiculous price on newegg. i really like the 720p 60fps file type, would be great for action videos. i was wondering if you could get some action of sports or something? ive heard the auto focus is a bit slow in those situations
