Although the H106 has a few buttons, you operate it primarily through a touch-screen interface. Unfortunately, the screen is a little small, and even though the touch buttons are fairly large, the screen doesn't respond fluidly enough to commands.

Like many models, the zoom switch on the H106 is skinny and a bit wobbly, making it difficult to control for a consistent zoom speed.

Buttons control display options, flash, and image stabilization as well as invoke an Easy mode. There's also a power button, but, like most camcorders, you can set it to power on and off when the LCD opens and closes.
