My reactions:
πŸ™‚ Full flip touch screen
πŸ™‚ Quick Autofocus
πŸ™‚ Touch-screen autofocus
πŸ™‚ Dedicated Movie Mode
πŸ™‚ Built-in ND filters
πŸ™‚ time-lapse feature built-in (no app required)
πŸ™‚ 10 bit 4:2:2 broadcast quality
πŸ™‚ Mic jack
πŸ™‚ Headphone jack
πŸ™‚ Bad ass lens hood
πŸ™‚ 4K recording
πŸ™‚ 20x zoom lens

πŸ™ starts to look noisy for video at 1600 ISO in low light (native 400 ISO)
πŸ™ Some delay in turning on (must wait for lens to extend)
πŸ™ 4K recording cropped

😐 1-inch sensor
😐 Slo-mo up to 1080p 120fps
😐 vs Sony RX10 Mark III (bigger zoom range, lighter weight, lens aperture ring, slo-mo 1080p 240fps, no ND filters)

This camera is perfect for shooting event videos.

Available in SingaporeΒ at Price S$2260.
Available Internationally at Price US$1197.

Do you think this camera is for you?

 

What are the accessories required?

Must also get:
– Battery DMW-BLC12 – US$70
– MC Protector DMW-LMCH67 US$59
– Shotgun mic DMW-MS2 US$279 (NO NEED BATTERY)
– Sandisk SDXC card U3 128GB US$63

Also video light and video light holder.

For recording modes of 100 Mbps or greater, use SDXC/SDHC Memory Cards compatible with UHS Speed Class 3 (U3).

Considered RODE Videomic Pro USD230, but NEED BATTERY, and about same price as the MS2
