The Panasonic VDR-D100 produced an unexceptional image at 3000 lux under our standardized conditions. It’s what you’d expect from a camcorder of this caliber. Inside, the D100 has a 1/6" CCD producing 680K gross (340K effective) pixels. What it yields is a balanced but rather flat looking picture. Unlike last year’s Panasonic VDR-M53, the D100 doesn’t tip over into too much blue. The spectrum is even.
