    That's an intelligent way to put it; the operative words being used to.

    We instead always see something along the lines of, "to make it work".

    That new mirrorless is definitely the opposite of the 400.

    He mainly shoots 1080 29.97 progressive now, but would migrate to 4K eventually.

    Only thing I noticed on B&H reviews were people saying they got dust on the sensor when using it outdoors. He shoots a lot on a boat. Fishing instructional videos. Long recording times. Deals with contrasty sun at times.
    One thing I can tell you about this dust on the sensor question. Panasonic has been trying o track this down. It appears to be just one person who has posted multiple times. While anything is possible, we have yet to see this camera or any other CX350 with this issue. In fact one of our first test shoots sent someone into a Latin American jungle and the CX350 came back absolutely filthy -- on the outside. Inside was fine.

    There are numerous cameras that fit the needs in the $1295 to $8000, many of those use little batteries like the Sony style. I recently looked for a few so that we can consider how much to budget for replacements in the coming year or two but didn't really settle on anything specific. One was a Sony that had three electronic rings on the lens to allow manual control of focus, zoom, and iris. Something that can have all manual functions leads the way for us to be able to teach how to use the camera in creative modes that auto everything can't do.

    I think this was it https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produ...camcorder.html

    But I also like the new(ish) JVC ENG/EFP camera with the cheap lens https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produ..._shoulder.html

    This for the cheapest side https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produ...camcorder.html

    There is a canon model that I liked, but don't remember which model it was, under $3000 is about all I remember.
