  1. Bingo

    The camera is not for amateur. Excellent sharpness, slow-motion recording in Full HD quality, wide dynamic range (Wide DR), everything is great, but it is not equipment that you will pick up and create a great movie. You need to spend some time on the settings.

Also, do you have any suggestions for editing software that would work well with this Camcorder?
