“Likes: extensive lens and adapter set; waveform video monitoring, vectorscope, zebra, peaking; rolling shutter issue has been well solved; no moirée or aliasing; ND filter wheel; fast motion, slow motion. Dislikes: main switch is not very well marked; viewfinder and monitor don’t work at the same time; viewfinder is very small with low resolution.”
