Summary: the size is good. the battery makes it seem not so small when it sticking outta the back but i guess you have to have that. i will say that it zooms out plenty but you have to back up to see stuff sometimes. also when you scroll through the menu it takes a while to get to the next section. we live in a fast world! i wasn't happy with that. great camera for the price other then that.
Summary: Used this for a few months then something went bad. Looked up authorized repair shops on Panasonic's website and sent it to one. They look at it and told me it needed a new circuit board but it would take a long time for them to get it so they recommended I send it to Panasonic. They sent it to the factory repair shop for me. Panasonic sent me an email and told me that since it had been opened by an "UNautorized" person they would have to charge me for repair.
Good quality product, but they shipped a wire less

Summary: The product is amazing. But I did not get the Power cord (I bought it refurbished, but still a wire less is a wire less). It is necessary for transferring to PC. Need to be sure you got everything.
Summary: Have owned SDR-H200 for about 8 months. Pros: Decent price, good video quality in well-lit areas, no tape, digital recording. Cons: poor low light video quality - not unusable, but noticeably grainy picture. Cannot get widescreen mode to work. Video clips are coming in as 4:3. Supplied software leaves a lot to be desired. recommended.
Summary: I had it for about three months. No problems what so ever. I just don't like the fact that I need to connect it to a power plug as opoosed to running it on battery when transferring files to the computer.
Summary: Very easy to use, very good video quality, plenty of manual controls. Handling is pretty good, just weird to have the battery coming out so much, especially when using the larger capacity batt... but does not interfere with the controls. Joystick is very precise, zoom is sensitive to your touch and will go fast or slow as needed. Not so great on dimmed light, but video light will help, however with some noise in the pic.
Summary: I love this little camcorder. I am very pleased with the size and the ease of use. Picture quality is great as long as you don't use the RCA cables. Indoor quality with marginal lighting is so-so but I can't say that I have ever seen a camcorder that works really well in low light. Once complaint that I do have is that the camera does not have a very wide field of view. Other than that, I love it.
