1080p video, 30fps; 3x optical zoom; 3-inch touchscreen LCD monitor; 8 megapixel stills; Auto-focus; Captures to microSD media card
The Samsung P300 is unique among pocket camcorders: It has optical zoom. It's just 3x, but there are literally no other pocket camcorders (aside from last year's U20, which the P300 replaces) with this feature. It's also a touchscreen model, which should grab some consumers' attention, though it uses the obnoxious microSD card format. It's intriguing, though we're not sure if it will catch on.
