Summary: I have had and used this camera for a couple of years now and am very satisfied with its video quality. Black levels are what they are with digital vs. older analog technology. Colors are good but not perfect. Facial recognition good. Photo quality pretty good, could be better.
Summary: Got a good deal on this, found it to be well worth it. Not many gripes, but here they are: Not so good in low light. No surprise that, no camera I can afford is good in low light. The other one is that when taking photos, the onscreen display that appears covers the screen, so that I cannot tell if...
Good for small businesses or people who want to dabble in film.

Summary: There is hardly any manual settings available on the HF M300, however, it is easy to use and certainly shoots good pictures. The onboard video light is a joke unless you are six inches away from the screen.
Summary: For the price... a great HD video camera. We use it for home movies: birthday's, Christmas, kids sports, etc. The picture quality is fantastic. I followed the suggestions in several reviews on this site to adjust for low light recording. When I shoot outside I use automatic mode.
Summary: Nice pictue quality in both picture and movie format. Writes and reads from flash memory without any problems. Touch screen is a bit difficult. Camera had an internal rattle (something inside was loose) and so I returned the camera. However, I will purchase another one. Good camera for the money.
Summary: Bought this camcorder simply for the task of taking videos of my children. I've taken it to talent shows, vacations, soccer games... I've used it indoors, outdoors and in many different lighting conditions and I have always been happy with the results.
Pros: The images are sharp, the AF is fast and the options are great. You can get good video from auto-mode or great video using a few simple manual adjustments
Cons: My only negative is I wish it had a viewfinder. The LCD screen is great but can be hard to see in bright sunlight (like any other LCD) so a viewfinder is always a good option to have.
Summary: I think this is a great starter camera. It is easy to use. For the love of me I can't understand why all cameras do not come with internal memory (this of course does not). I was able to take great first christmas video.I will stick with Canon.
Summary: I bought this camcorder as secondary (smaller) camcorder, alternative to our larger high end camcorder. I'm happy with the M300 but I post this quick review to warn buyers to know what they are buying when they order a camcorder in the series M300/M30/M31/M32 Do NOT buy until you've gone to a...
