There were a couple things that Didn’t make the video, for example.

Sony made a fairly unique ” Finger Grip” which at face value seems like a great way to have a very compact unit to travel with, however years of shooting handguns has taught me that this will not ( for most, especially one handed) be overly stable – the digital stability however should account for shake and vibrations but not large movements so it would need to be in fairly steady hands for decent footage, Also found images online of an external mic being used for a small scale set up

If I’m honest I’m a little disappointed that I didn’t like this more, we shoot on sony almost exclusively from our AX53 Camera for shooting events and the Car reviews to the A6500 and a5100 for photograhpy and Vlogging, it would have been nice to have a holistic set up of pure Sony, I just feel like the Go Pro out performs everything else on the market.
