Good hand grip with 78x enhanced optical zoom.
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 difference isn't that immense between the two models at RRP, and yet the overall video capture quality is.
Good image quality
The Panasonic SDR-H101 has several good features such as a huge 80 GB hard drive to store up to 74 hours or video recording. With good colour and detail level, the image quality is on par with recent SD camcorders. If that is not enough, you can also use the SD HC slot to add storage. Thanks to the really functional image stabilisation, you can actually shoot at the full 70x optical zoom without a tripod, provided that you have a steady hand.
