I've used this camera for the past month to shoot wildlife footage. It's a lightweight camera that is workable, but it doesn't stand out for its specs. Instead, what it really has going for itself is that it's backwards compatible with all other XDCAM formats and workflows. Plus, you can use many of the same accessories, memory cards, and batteries that worked on their older models. Those are big perks, in my opinion, and it's what sold me on the camera.
