  • Excerpt: The VDR-D100 is Panasonic’s lowest priced DVD camcorder being sold this year. As a replacement to the VDR-M53, it will provide some much needed additions while, unfortunately, losing some of the features that distinguished the VDR-M53 from the competition. This version has an identically sized LCD with lower resolution, no accessory cold shoe, no mic-in port, and no still image capabilities.
  • Pros: -Great Manual controls, -Priced for budget consumers looking for the DVD format, -Far better joystick interface in comparison to previous Panasonic models
  • Cons: -No still features, -Dull video quality that struggled with heavy levels of noise, -Swapping out DVDs every 18 minutes with highest quality record mode, -Electronic rather than Optical Image Stabilization

Panasonic VDR-D100 review

  • Excerpt: The VDR-D100 is only a touch bigger and heavier than the DC19, but it feels bulkier in your hand. Despite this it's comfortable to hold and the controls are easy to reach. The lens is protected by a traditional lens cap. There's no video lamp and no way to take still photos. To flip the LCD out from the body you must press a button, which is an unnecessary nuisance. The display isn't widescreen, but the camcorder can shoot widescreen video with a very wide angle.

  • Summary: In anything other than good natural light, the D100 suffered obtrusive and persistent blotchy noise issues and compression artefacts.

  • Excerpt: La videocamera digitale Panasonic VDR-D100 è una videocamera tra quelle più a bassa qualità prodotte durante questo inizio d'anno. Si tratta infatti di una macchina veramente entry level, a cui mancano molte delle features che ormai il pubblico desidera. Un esempio? Non è possibile scattare fotografie, cosa che impone di portare sempre appresso una fotocamera digitale in caso di necessità.
  • Cons: Non si possono effettuare fotografie, Riprese notturne di scarsa qualità
