"Good but half baked"2.5 starson by cameraman176
Pros: This camera has a nice feel, light but some solidness in body & handgrip, great viewfinder and microphone and nice lens that makes it much easier to use than SLR type bodies for shooting video. Picture quality is impressive and easy to use menu contr
Cons: Why did sony take away RAW when other NEX models have it? Why is there only 25P (30P) if it is marketed as a semipro video camera? Progressive scan picture shudder is intolerable when you are film moving subjects or panning. A time lapse video mode woul
Summary: This camera has the possible makings of a great light portable multipurpose semi pro video and still camera for field journalism and doco makers BUT short sighted marketing decisions by sony to remove key features like RAW photo format and 25i (30i) video format , presumably to protect sales of other models, has seriously hobbled this model making it an expensive amateur toy. Please Sony do a firmware update and add the missing key ingredients to make a great camera.
