Panasonic SDR-H100 Review

 

While the very affordable Panasonic SDR-H100K does shoot quality standard-definition video, it doesn't support high-definition shooting. The 78x enhanced optical zoom is nice, but the digital photos are of very low resolution at 0.3 megapixels.

It packs a lot of features into a small camcorder, including an impressive enhanced optical zoom.

This camcorder only records in standard definition, and the hard drive capacity is a little small.

The Panasonic SDR-H100K is an affordable SD hard drive camcorder with quality features.

1. zoom is good 2. it is lighweight but most are these days.

small and compact. easy to use. good image quality. battery life is very good (did 2 hours straight with plenty to spare). quality product. hard drive makes recording much easier and the software supplied allowed me to edit and make a dvd very easily.

record button placed right where I rest my thumb, so accidentally stopped recording and didn't notice for 20 minutes (was my first time using it so understandable). not a design fault though - just have to get used to using it and work out where to...

Easy to use, light. Picture quality looks really good.

Found it hard to find still pictures to review without having to go back to the book, and as I was on holiday I hadn't taken book with me so it was a bit annoying. In hindsight I should have practised a bit more before my holiday
