Sony First Impressions

"Plenty of features."

The case was good, and the flash drives are good. So, when Sony came, I purchased it immediately. Even with the lens, battery and SD card, it weighs very little. Simply because they just use the kit lenses the cameras come with. The availability of the control dials makes a huge difference.

Sony Final Thoughts

"Let's be clear."

Does wonderfully with night shots handheld. With that said, this 8k Mirrorless Camera rocks. And, the EVF stayed in my bag nearly the entire trip. The availability of the control dials makes a huge difference. Low Light video is very well done.
