Michael, Stockport, Cheshire Experienced amateur

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
i like the way you can quickly acess both memory card and hard drive also how quick you can start recording.
Bad points:
There's only one that i've found, if you don't happen to own a case for the camera, if you you move quite quickly, the LCD screen flips open, sometimes without you knowing, i'll have to watch that, could cause some damage.
