SDR-H100 is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Consider it a kids toy While in Alaska, I was standing on a deck eye level with a bald eagle perched in a tree. The camera was on a tripod setting on the hand rail. I took my time to setup the shot so the auto focus could make its necessary adjustments.(NO MANUAL FOCUS) The eagle took to flight, and I snapped a shot just as its talons left the branch. The picture look great on the small display. I transferred the image to my computer and it was so grainy I almost trashed the camera right there. Its only saving grace is that it is fair for micro photography. Give this one to the kids. They will learn what NOT to buy when they are ready for serious photography.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I'm sorry I bought this camera The video quality is poor. If you take video indoors, forget it. Everything is blurry , grainy, looks out of focus.Outdoors is not bad. The zoom is very good.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst Misleading Camera Ever This video camera can ONLY upload videos to a PC. I HAVE A MAC. So i cannot upload ANY OF MY VIDEOS TO MY COMPUTER! This was very upsetting after i had spent alot of money on this video camera to not be able to use any of the videos! Worst of all is that nowhere on the box that it came in did it say that it only works with PC computers. Not until you get into the middle of the owner's manual does it state that. DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT IF YOU HAVE A MAC!!!!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great camcorder. This is my fourth camcorder since 1987 and it's by far the best of the bunch. Very small and light, I can add it to my DSLR backpack and it takes up no more space than a lens. Video quality is great and sound is good. The only negative I have with this camera, and most of them now, is that there is no input for a good microphone.
