The one and only reason you should get this is the image stabilization. The 4k at 30 FPS is not great TBH because it ends up a pretty big tile-ing effect if you have a lot of motion in the scene (it was really bad when I filmed a stream flowing).The other main issue I face with this is that the manual controls are through the floor, trash-tastically terrible. If this camera doesn't happen to guess what you want focused then get ready for hell. ""OH MAN I WANNA FILM THAT RARE BIRD okokok I'm at full zoom with only a tiny bit of shake, ok that's awesome but the stupid camera is focused on the trees waving in the background DAMMIT ok hold the manual button, scroll to exposure since it's way to dark, hit manual button, scroll the exposure up, hit manual button DAMMIT THAT PUT IT BACK INTO AUTO EXPOSURE, hit manual button, scroll exposure back up, HOLD manual button this time, scroll to focus, DAMMIT THE RING IS TOO SENSITIVE I SCROLLED TOO FAR, ok on I'm focus manual mode. Hit the button, scroll to get focus.. and the bird flew away.""I use this camera at 1080, 60 fps with digital zoom off. That way I get the maximum image stabilization. And btw the image stabilization is absolutely incredible on this thing.
