Although I have had this camera since last November, the lock down, the weather and other priorities have meant that I have only done a little indoor testing do far. Come the Spring and easing of lockdown and I'll be in a better position to report back to you.
I love this camera. I not a pro. I am not willing to spend a ton of time on a learning curve. But out of the box, I was up and rolling. This not the handycam of my youth. This is simple. As for the video quality... wow!
