Excellent camera5 Posted by: from: on Love this camera, excellent video quality. Love the high frame rate. I use it as a second camera view when shooting live bands with my XF-200 as the main camera, so I don't use the audio from this camera, but it seems ok. Love that it can shoot .mp4 format onto the SD cards, saves a lot of time in the processing flow after shoots. Excellent, highly recommended.

Does it all4 Posted by: from: on A wonderful step up to 4K. Easy to use, clear monitor and terrific broadcast-quality final image. Only slight niggle is the zoom button feels rather industrial and makes zooming in and out a bit haphazard.

Really nice recorder5 Posted by: from: Central Jersey on This makes some nice video and is a lot better than using the DSLR ,, the video files are .mts files that you have to convert to play on other devices or players ,, it can convert to .mp4 files ,, but only the middle resolution and is a step you manually have to do within the camcorder ... Using this ,, the biggest benefit is the auto focus while recording that my DSLR cannot do ...
