Great camera

 

This is a very easy pro camera to use with limited knowledge on shooting video. There are a lot of info videos online to set up shooting in manual.

Great low-budget camera for the serious filmmaker

 

Nice, compact camcorder for high-quality filming when you don't want to intimidate your subjects as you might with a much bigger camera and setup. The zoom works a whole lot better than I ever would have expected but it's the option to shoot in 24 fps...

I was using a Nikon D4 previously for video work and my stress levels have dropped dramatically now that I use the camcorder. It is so much easier to use than a DSLR! Admittedly there is a trade off in the image quality which is very slightly softer...
