This Sony H1 has been a good dependable little workhorse that would shoot all day on a pair of AA batteries and when coupled with the VCL-DH1758 1.7 teleconverter lens, it works quite well bringing the subject in.
The only problem I have had with it is that for a spell (about a month) it would decide when it wanted to start up. I mean it could be laying on my desk at the other side of the room and it would turn itself on and off all by itself. This went on for about a month and stopped as abruptly as it started. Nobody I asked about it could give me an answer as to why this happened. That was about 2 years ago and it is still working fine now.
