Very easy to use, full auto works a treat, image quality at 4K is stunning. Bought this AX53 camera as a backup camera to my Sony AX100, mainly for the BOSS stabilizer, which is very impressive.
Would have liked more manual control for the individual settings, Aperture, Shutter and Gain, you can only use one of these at a time, the other settings stay on Auto.
