The ultra sensitive 5-axis voice coil motor is immensely responsive, so that you can shoot sharp images in very low light and capture steady videos even when the camera is hand-held.

Hands on Impression

I was really impressed, it could be the best alternative to the full frame DSLR user. its light, image quality same as brilliant as DSLR, and customization as open to DSLR and takes less space compare to DSLR. Its splash proof. The first thing in any mirrorless camera you will notice is the ViewFinder is digital and that makes you the reason to buy this mirrorless camera. The 18MP sensor is amazingly sharp. The company claims its sharper than 20MP sensor. The problem which I thought that is the OS of the camera, as getting use to it will definitely take some time. I really think its the wonderful video camera as well as photography camera and best alternative to full frame DSLR.
