Sony Final Thoughts

"Try that with DSLR."

I chose to shoot most outdoor shots with an aperture of + or - f/5. So far performance is fabulous. In practice, the Sony produces superlative images. The Sony phase and contrast system has it beat. The second problem is the focusing controls.

"Love this Streaming Mirrorless Camera!"

Prompt delivery and everything in good shape. Needed to get it in time to experiment & get used to it. I've added some sample photos taken with this camera and a 50mm f1. The second problem is the focusing controls. They're a good choice for all around work.

"Fujifilm Lover."

So having a backup battery is what I would consider a must. I've only touched in certain points there's so much more. A shame since the video quality is very good. I love this combo and I must say I am thrilled with the Fujifilm . So, when Fujifilm came, I purchased it immediately.
