Samsung Has Good Reviews for Its Camcorders

Based on 129 owner and expert reviews, Samsung has good ratings for its video cameras. However, Samsung has unexceptional ratings for its medium total megapixels camcorders compared to medium total megapixels camcorders made by other manufacturers. 100% of those that bought a Samsung camcorder would recommend the product that they bought to other buyers.


Display

Fairly Large Display Diagonal

Across all the video cameras that were launched around the same time as this video camera the display diagonals range from 1.5" to 4". At 3 inches, the Samsung HMX-H304 has a fairly large display diagonal compared to most of the other camcorders of this age and type.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative 3" screen size video cameras currently available including the Sony HDR-PJ260E, or the Panasonic HS900 which has better reviews.

If you would prefer a camcorder with a larger display diagonal then you might want to consider the Canon Legria HF S30 (3.5") which also has a higher rating.
