Summary: ...I bought this item for a very specific purpose:..to use with my time-lapse equipment...I have Canon T2i & T3i bodies, and the electronics plugs in and controls the cameras via the usb port.
Nice amateur camera hampered by inadequate battery life (to which there seems no solution).

Summary: Amateur here. 5 starts for convienience, sensor, image quality -1 star for poor autofocus, not enough lens options, weak grip, and a battery that doesn't last long enough...and doesn't give you a battery grip option.
Summary: Underrated due to some early problems with the firmware, now completely corrected with version 2.02. With the Canon adapter you can use EF and EF-S lenses, and with third party adapters you can also use the older manual focus FD lenses.
Excerpt: install ML, buy a lot old FD lenses and an adapter, it's perfect for video. And it's cheap! Thoth screen is the best I ever use, just like my cellphone If you doing still, don't buy it! The AF is slow
The possibilities are endless with this camera. Look into ...

Summary: The possibilities are endless with this camera. Look into adapting different lenses to it, and you will find yourself coming back to it time after time (Heck, I sold my 5D II and kept this one because it could use lenses the 5D couldn't).
Summary: Ok, love this camera. It's slow to take pictures but I bought it mostly for an affordable camera to do dslr quality 1080 video. It does that very well. Bought a cheap mic to do better audio and this is an amazing package.
