This product has all the qualities of a good camcorder and gives out pretty excellent video quality in both daylight as well as night. However with the main rival of Samsung HMX300-BP being its own brand product Samsung HMX-Q10, the latter becomes a better choice for many reasons. The first reason being the fact that it has identical video quality as that of HMX300-BP and is about £45 cheaper. Only the extra zoom factor remains with the Samsung HMX300-BP, otherwise Samsung HMX-Q10 is a better choice by all other means. You can save yourself from spending unnecessary extra money by choosing the HMX-Q10 model instead of the HMX300-BP.
