    HighwaymanTed - February 2017
  • The screen and menus are very easy to navigate…
    Bob Sherunkle - February 2015
  • Minor wobbles and trembles are ironed out so if you don't have a hugely steady hand you won't get sea sick from watching your videos back and this feature alone justifies it's high price tag Image quality is excellent and there is very little blurring unless you are making very fast and erratic movements with a very good and smooth zoom function that is simple to use…
    AndyBSG - February 2015
  • Fantastic piece of kit, great pictures easy to use…
    Frank Furlong - June 2016
