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!

The performance of the camera is very good, with excellent battery life. The overall package is let down by the lack of a viewfinder. This could be compensated for to some extent by having a brightness control of the viewing screen.

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.

We bought this product for a yoga class web cam and for yoga class video production. found it very easy to use. quick set up. Compact form. great wide angle, which was import for our purposes. I have only used it on a tripod so cannot comment on the lens stabilisation.
