I love this camera. I not a pro. I am not willing to spend a ton of time on a learning curve. But out of the box, I was up and rolling. This not the handycam of my youth. This is simple. As for the video quality... wow!

    SimpleBasically point and shootExcellent video quality

  • -

    May want an external micLacking some of the features of the previous model (but I didn't care)

overall the camera shoots excellent video in low and high speed frame mode. the start up is less then 3 seconds from power button/opening side viewer and it is recording. play back is easy to access when quick reviews are needed.

VERY hard to see the display in the sunlight, other than that, perfect camera!

I have tried out so many cameras lately from DSLR to Hand-held action cameras. I was about to give up until I purchased this. I now feel like a videographer even though I’m far from one. Excellent video and easy to use.

I bought this and now I am returning it because they took out the Night Shot feature. I didn’t mind it not having the external viewfinder, but the Night Shot IR System is what was needed for ghost hunting.

Disappointed. Just a dumbed down version of the Ax53, nothing new.

I bought this a month ago and was very pleased with its ease of use, picture quality and stabilisation features. Its only on a bright sunny day that I realosed the monitor was absolutely useless, and maybe I should have bought a camcorder with an optical viewfinder as well.

I've been looking for 4K camera very long time , especially with this range of price. It's truly amazing , stabilisation system works great even with big zoom , sound quality is very good as well. Picture is breathtaking!!! It's next level quality , can't compare with 4K phone video .

Built in stabilisation and zoom lens in one device is a dream come true for me to shoot video. Really glad i made the right decision. The video is sharp and crisp almost like documentary style quality.
