Sleek, shiny design

The body is typically tubular, but as with its siblings, the HMX-H106's twist-down handle makes it comfortable to hold.

Combination controls

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.

Zoom

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.

Connectors

Underneath the (very) shiny silver hatch lie the power, USB, miniHDMI, and AV connectors. The battery and SD compartment is on the bottom, which can be a problem if you plan to shoot on a tripod.

Buttons

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.
