Summary: If the images from Panasonic's HDC-HS100 equalled its great handling and usability, this model would be a clear winner. The HS100 provides the best controls we've seen in a small HD camcorder, but the images lag behind those of AVCHD camcorders such as the Sony Handycam HDR-SR12 and Canon HF10 camcorders — and those models offer decent usability, to boot.
Pros: Compact size, lots of manual controls, optical image stabiliser
Cons: Unwieldy joystick interface, sub-par image quality, too expensive for what it offers
