The Handycam HDR-CX100 is the first of Sony's AVCHD models to head down the budget path.With dimensions of 2.3 inches by 2.4 inches by 4.5 inches and weighing 11.7 ounces with battery and Memory Stick Duo, the CX100 certainly qualifies as compact for its class. Though it's no diminutive minicamcorder, it fits quite comfortably in a jacket pocket, and it has a lot of things those models lack, including a 10x zoom lens and the ability to capture 2-megapixel (or 4-megapixel interpolated) stills.

HD Recording Format AVCHD (1920 x 1080i)
