How do you like the camera?
What made you consider and finally buy it?

Thank you for your kind words!

Quite a while ago I had a Mk2, which I liked a lot, but had to sell. With this, I happened to spot one on Ebay that had no bids and a low reserve, which meant I got it for £500. Now, I don't make money from video, but at that price I figured it was cheap enough to have as a 'family' video camera.

I have to say, in many ways, I prefer it to the Mk2. It's got the DPAF upgrade and all said, coupled with - in the video above - the 17-55 2.8 it's just a really simple, non-intimidating camera to use. It gets out of the way and lets you concentrate on the creative bits of shooting moving pictures. I also like that I can, if I want, use it fully stripped down - although in general I'm preferring it with the Zacuto EVF I managed to pick up, also for a song, on that well-known auction site!

Next project is a short narrative piece, for which I'll start lighting and grading tests tonight. Can't wait!
