    Great camera but just too complicated for me. I’m not a tech person and I don’t have the patience.

    Verified BuyerReviewed by Battman23 - November 24, 2020

    Camera has great build quality and is easy to use. If you are looking for something larger and better quality than a point-and-shoot, this is the best choice for a semi-compact near professional camera.

  • Good pictures and video
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Videoeditor - November 17, 2020

    Very good quality video in 4k and pictures. Love the auto-focus. Small and easy to carry. However, I am buying a separate carrying case for it, makes me nervous to just lay it around after spending $1,000.
