Released March, 2011
The Pros:Operation is simple enough to hand to someone and have them immediately know how to work it. Zoom has an excellent range and looks good even at the most extended end. Image stabilization more than accounts for hand shake.
The Cons:No input for an external microphone. Still images seem low-quality and poorly color balanced.

The SDR-H100 has a 33mm wide-angle lens, which allows a large depth of field for sharp images and makes shooting video indoors or in tight spaces more convenient by allowing more surrounding area into the frame. The 78x Enhanced Optical Zoom helps to ensure detailed images. The SDR-H100 is equipped with the iA (Intelligent Auto) suite, a series of features (including Auto-focus/Auto-exposure) that automatically selects the appropriate settings for optimal video quality. The Advanced OIS (Optical Image Stabilization) feature of this camcorder helps to reduce blur when zooming (at a rate of 4,000 times per second), even if you are walking (thanks to Active mode). The LED light on this camcorder helps you to capture video in low-light situations. This model differs from the lower cost SDR-T70 model in that it has an 80GB hard disk drive (as opposed to the SDR-T70's 4GB of built-in memory). The Panasonic SDR-H100 has VideoCam suite software, which allows you to instantly upload video clips to Facebook and YouTube (with the help of a PC).
