Consumer review by: Sam17 (very.co.uk)

Build quality above competitors. Lens very clear

 

Build quality is fantastic, feels solid, case is brilliantly designed. Audio quality (without case) is very very good. Video quality is crisp as long as you are in well lit conditions. You will need a fast memory card for this camera.
