The ZR300 is on the top of the three entry level camcorders by Cannon. The main benefit in spending the extra money for the ZR300 is a very noticable increase in low light performance. It has a 22x optical zoom lens and dual condenser microphones.

Great handling, low light capabilities and 22x optical zoom!
Those on a tight budget could get the ZR200 for a hundred less and get a similar product minus the low light capabilities of the ZR300.
