    "Very easy to use...Sony is the best...Overall view of the camera: It may seem like I've a lot of complaints listed, these are why I dropped a star, some could be improved and some I could have just done without to save cost (wifi and nfc could have been left of altogether) but this are mainly just issues that come with getting a very nice camera a good price point...Crazy as it sounds, I primarily use my camcorder to video dogs - so I can study their structure, movement and overall conformation, so a camcorder that focuses quickly and is able to easily track maintain focus is important to me"

    "Easy to use also...Very easy to use...I do a lot of volunteering of making veteran videos, this camera has made a huge difference as I was using a Canon Vixia model that didn't have 4K recording capabilities (Still a great camera that I will continue to use for a number of years)...The only areas I'm disappointed are the audio quality (though this can be improved with a separate or shoe attached microphone) and the stabilization is sometimes too aggressive, introducing shakes or a sense of floating past the point where I intend a pan to stop, as it over compensates for intentional camera movements"
