    Good Product

    Though, this is a very good product but it is very hard to understand the usage. We are trying to understand it a line per day

    Awesome !!!!!!

    Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

    This camera has performed superbly! It is EVERYTHING the critics said and more! We have used it on one documentary shoot and one TV Sitcom shoot (with a 2nd rented Sony HVR-Z1U) with excellent results. As suggested
