Pros[edit]

  • Good image quality
  • Interchangable lenses
  • Tried and tested - used in 28 Days Later.

Cons[edit]

  • The supplied zoom lens has horrible electronic "manual" controls over the zoom and focus - there's no direct mechanical coupling between the rings and the glass. It's pretty tough to zoom smoothly or to focus responsively
  • No XLR mic support
  • No true 16:9
  • No LCD screen
  • Not HDV
