Summary: Great camera, superb picture quality.A++++. BUT, the following controls on the camera are poorly designed and prone to failure: #1. Flimsy External plastic Mic Holder. Mine broke where it is screwed into the base. This is not an issue because I use the supplied on-board mic ONLY for ambient sounds and attach external mics via the 2 xlr inputs. #2. Extremely poorly engineered Battery Release Button, will malfunction or fail (I use gaffer tape to seal it off). #3.
Summary: I do film weddings, private parties, birtday parties and special ocasions as well. Tapeless technology is the best feature to have. 1080p 60i recording would make my dream come through, but as of today I have to live with 720p with 60i. Thanks for the best technology out there.
Summary: The information are very usefull for begginer, the guy know is stuff. You can find all the information on the net for free but this DVD provide everything needed to use the camera even if you are a pro, no need to explain White balance or video transfert but this camera have so many option that even a pro could learn something from this DVD.
