Summary This is an excellent camera for the $$. I've used it to shoot everything from weddings to sporting events and the picture quality is awesome. I'm finding more features to use even after owning for over 6 years.
Pros I have used this in many projects from press conferences, interviews, documentaries, and music videos... I've taken it from the U.S. to Asia, and down to South America. It works great, everything you need, all pro features in a small package.
Cons Microphone inputs - mini jack. To bad it is not XLR.
Pros Everything about it is top notch. I've used MANY cameras in my line of work. For the price and features, this camera is hands down the BEST there is. Period.
Cons None. This little gem rocks. If you have problems with it, then it's YOU the USER that doesn't know what you're doing. Treat it right, read the directions, and this camera KICKS SERIOUS BUTT.
