Tom, Hickmore

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Excellent picture quality, cost point, varying functionality, compression codec. The Loupe is good.
Bad points:
Our firmware won't update. Had a problem with white balance fixed via Prime Support (which is good). NO FILE NAMES for logging - having to log with time-codes is a step backwards. No internal ND filters is a disappointment. The viewfinder is just a little poor. The focus is so much more crucial than on the EX1 (our previous camera) but the viewfinder is not as good. Thus we have purchased a plug-in HDMI monitor. It'd be worth a couple of hundred pounds more to have a better viewfinder.
