Cette camera est de très bonne qualité professionnel.
la qualité de l'image est surprenante.
Le plus est la profondeur de champ qui est d'entrée de gamme et les trois bague sur l'objectif sont parfaites.

The camera is as I already knew, an excellent camera for my use as a documentary producer.
Globalmediapro prices competitive, delivery after payment was slightly longer than anticipated.
Globalmediapro can be recomended for all who want cameras and equipment at excellent prices, but make shure to check your lokal custom expenses in order to avoid surprices upon delivery.
With this in mind I do recomend Globalmediapro as a partner in purchases of all media hardware.
Excellent camera
