Attractive design; comfortable rotating grip; manual shutter speed and aperture controls.
SSD adds unnecessary price premium; so-so video quality; slow, inaccurate autofocus.
An interesting design doesn't offset the so-so video quality and performance, especially for the higher priced HMX-H106, H105, and H104. If you're set on this series, though, the no-memory-included Samsung HMX-H100 is probably the best deal of the bunch.
