Extremely stable piece of gear

Jo Flash, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I am extremely satisfied with the NX30u. It works great in a low light situation. Carl Zeiss' lense adds extreme quality to the footage shot with this camera. At first, I thought the projector was a sales gimmick. The project is high quality and pretty powerful, I was impressed.

Front heavy, bad ergonomics

Dale C., B&H Photo
5 November 2014
  • Excerpt: The camera is front heavy to begin with, and putting the XLR handle and mic on makes it really awkward. And the placement of the headphone jack behind the hand strap is ridiculous. Those bad design features, plus the lack of full manual exposure control, made me return the unit.

Great things DO come from small packages

Auproma, B&H Photo
2 November 2014
  • Excerpt: I'm a filmmaker who usually shoots movies with my trusty Canon 5D. However, sometimes I just need the convenience and simplicity this camcorder offers. If I need a shot that requires more stability, a smaller and much more low profile set up, or a slow motion shot at 1080p (my Canon 5D only shoots...
