I’ve had this camera for about two weeks, it has amazed me with the picture quality, and gives me the ability to zoom in and pan without drastic picture quality losses, obviously at post production on the timeline of Adobe Premier. The only draw back, which is very sad, is the lack of lens control whithin the remote control App (Play memories) whilst under Wifi control. Other than stop and start recording you can ONLY zoom in and out, if this had aperture control, and maybe focus it would get my full marks. So limited in my opinion, but a stunning camera.

I'm a long term semi professional stills photographer making a move to video for the first time.

This is a great mid-sized pro-sumer camera with a wide range of manual control available for those with the desire to take full control. While it is perfect for those more experienced videographers, a little more forethought would make it easier to use by those familiar with photography but still relatively new to video.

Picture quality is top notch at this price range, though the wind noise picked up by the built in mic makes the mic useless in all but the stillest of conditions.

A simpler exposure compensation method in auto mode would be appreciated, perhaps via the manual dial. It could be something I missed however you seem to have Full Auto, Full Manual, a fixed exposure compensation via the touch screen menu or exposure spot meter again using the touchscreen but which permanently fixes the exposure for that one area. There does not appear to be a method of adjusting the exposure "on the fly" without resorting to touching the screen continually which pretty much makes the eyepiece viewfinder redundant, a bugbear in bright light situations!

Beside the exposure the only other criticisms are:-
1) The sensitivity of the touch screen itself, which on my model is not very
sensitive to not at all, requiring multiple attempts to invoke a command.
2) An over sensitive zoom rocker which while being variable seems to go from
very slow to extremely fast over a millimeter or so of movement. A low/high
sensitivity button to select a preferred option would prove useful here.

And finally,

3) The user guide could be rethought as it is pretty useless as an instruction
manual and I found myself having to resort to the internet for user instruction
videos.

These somewhat minor issues aside this is a great camera and well worth the investment for those wishing something above an all automatic camera.
