  • In camera manual audio control!
  • A Headphone Jack!
  • ISO 100-25600 standard, 50-102,800 expanded
  • 61 point AF system
  • Dual card slots (SDHC/CF)
  • HDMI out – no drop in resolution (but not clean)
  • 29:59 second continued recording
  • 720p 50fps
  • ALL I compression (90Mb/s sec) Continue reading
