I am undecided as to which one to get of these two models, which are currently on sale at the local BestBuy. I need your wise assistance!!!!

Samsung Q10

Samsung H300

Official Manufacturer Website for Both Products

Your help will be most appreciated

** Correct me if I am wrong but from what I can see the only difference between the two models is the Zoom lens.

Interesting conversation I had with a Samsung Rep Just Now About These Two Cameras:

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/samsung-busts-out-new-full-hd-hmx-q10-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/consumer/product/hm/xh/30/hmxh300bnxaa/HW300_spec.jpg

Raven: I am sorry for the typo.

Raven: The correct link is as follows.

Raven: http://www.samsung.com/us/photography/camcorders/HMX-H300BN/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/photography/camcorders/HMX-Q10BN/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.

OK here's some samples videos I took about 30 mins ago. I uploaded them to my Dropbox. They are on their original MP4 form. 720p - 60fps. Camera set on Smart Auto. Enjoy and let me know what you think.

I went for the H300.

Here's a low light sample I just took. I am amazed at the quality. That is exactly how I saw things so the camera is correct. Check it out. It is on 720p, 60fps.
