Great camera, But...

 

The HXR-MC2500 is a great camera. I use it often, doing video production in church services, as well as weddings. The only flaw I've found with this camera, is that the Viewfinder has no expansion.

Best in class, for the price...

 

Very impressed. Light weight but solidly built. NFC and wifi make it easy to setup and remotely operate. Good feature set. You're getting 90% of a much more expensive "pro" camera (think, TV studio ENG level snobbery) for at least half the cost.

Great camera

 

This camera gets the job done, lightweight, but oh so versatile. It works great in tandem with my Sony HXR NX 30. The quality in both audio and video is great. This is one of those camera's that you have to keep going back to manual as you find out...
