Fulfills every expectation, with a surprise extra.
on May 18, 2013
I had reviewed the features on several models and settled on this one because of the low-light performance, external microphone plug, audio monitor plug, the ability to grab a still photo while recording video, and long, stabilized, zoom range. I was vaguely aware that it had a wi-fi card built in, but had not thought about how that might be useful. In the box, with the Owner's Manual was a new instruction sheet, explaining the process for downloading a cellphone app to remotely control the camera through its wi-fi connection, while seeing its display on the cellphone screen. I have rigged a tripod head on a long pole to get videos and stills from an overhead vantage point.
