"Great camcorder"4.0 starson by Camman124
Pros: 20x Zoom
Great colour reproduction
High bit rate recording
Nice sharp image
Cons: Micro SD slot, it should be a full size SD slot.
Summary: I had a look at the GZ-HD300 as I was in the market for a HD camcorder arouend this price. I was impressed with the colour accuracy, sharp detailed image and the fact that the camcorder is nice and compact. I ended up getting the next model up the JVC GZ-HD320 only because it had more capacity. I'll need that when I go overseas. However the image quality on both models are the same, capacity is the only difference. If 60 GB ( 5 Hrs 30 mins at highest quality setting ) is enough then for a little cheaper the GZ-HD300 would be a great choice.
