  • Best video camera I have ever owned
    by mjpalmierisr

    This Sony video camera is so small and great quality. I took it to Walt Disney World and took some of the highest quality videos I have ever taken. The stabilizer helps the videos come out awesome. I was at Galaxy’s Edge opening day and I captured it with this camera. It came out awesome and the family raves about how clear and brilliant the 4K video came out.

  • Nice Cam
    by SpeedFreak

    on September 12, 2019

    Have several of the older models. Unfortunately, this cam design does not fit most of the accessories I have for them. Too bad because I really love the ability to just pop the cam into the Video cam AKA-LU1 accessory. But other than that and battery life (which is poor cam is always on) the videos look great.

    The process of viewing/downloading videos and images is a bit tedious.
