I film live gigs and weddings. You can always rely on this camera to driver superior results. It's easy to use and the quality of sound and image is awesome

Recommended.

 

Upgraded from Canon HFR506 as I wanted full manual control.Great to shoot in low light and get the results you want and not what the camera thinks.Image quality was also a big improvement.
