Panasonic SDR-H101

 

Panasonic's dual-hard-drive/SD card camcorder delivers average quality. It's not a terrible camcorder, but it's not one that stands out, and the lack of HD recording is a notable omission.

Dual HDD/SD recording ; 78x enhanced optical zoom ; Good hand grip

No HD recording options ; Bulky battery ; Can be twitchy about recording to SD card

The SDR-H101 is a fair camcorder, but it's not a great one. Our largest gripe with it is really a pricing one. As we tested this concurrently with the SD80, we were able to compare shot quality quite closely. While the SD80 does cost more, the price...

Review: Panasonic SDR-H101

 

An adjustable cushioned leather grip strap is present on one side, making it suitable to be held comfortably with the right hand. Of course that leaves left-handed people in the lurch, but such is usually the case with just about any of the camcorders...

Compact size and light; Good image quality; 70x optical zoom; Optical image stabilization; 80 GB hard drive + SD HC storage; Good battery life; Zoom microphone works well

Poor performance in dim environment; Lens-glare issues; No headphone jack; Power button can be occasionally unresponsive

Panasonic SDR-H101

 

Bought this for my daughter and her finance for their wedding in June. They had it for a Christmas present and were highly delighted. Obviously early days so far, but they were impressed by the size, quality and image. Haven't given 10 out of 10 for...

Cost of buying a spare battery, although I think you can buy cheaper non Panasonic batteries that will fit the camera.
