    "Love it...A Steal...Then I saw the Panasonic G7 mirrorless camera which I never heard of, turned out to be a smaller type DSLR camera I was impressed by the review so I picked it up in AUG.2015 200off 599.99 and as I write this FEB.15 2016 its a steal 4K camera amazing in video and pictures 100% would tell a person who's looking to start a youtube channel or to film parties etc this is a great investment...This is a good camera to move from the point and shoot style without breaking the bank on a SLR, The manual controls provide excellent exposures and if you want; you also have a great automatic camera if you don't want to make the exposure yourself, the camera will do it for you with great results."

    "Love it!...Have fun....I won't hold this against the Rylo 360, however, as it is, after all, primarily a 360 video camera and the ability to take pictures as well as videos is a nice addition to have....Also it is nice that they include a memory card with the device, but I would suggest getting a larger capacity card as soon as possible as the one that comes in it can only do 30 minutes or so of recording."
