  • The good quality screen means using this to focus is perfect.

  • Recording to SD cards is always our preferred way as we already carry lots of them.

  • Trustworthy touch screen which works well.


  • DIN connectors mean carrying an extra cable around.

  • Not always clear when the device is recording means that you can't see at a glance if you are actually recording.
