Editor's Notes & Price Research
It also does great 1080 up to 60fps video; but is cumbersome for noise from VR (use a mic) and auto focus; that hunts (in video only) so promoting pulling your own. Combined with the jello effect (on CMOS chips) you'll want to avoid panning(go SLOW). A mono-pod and mic though would produce outstanding results. Some auto-focus before recording and stop before refocusing to hide the hunting.
However video AF is a small piece of the pie and if you buy a unit great at that; you''ll miss the what this cameras sensor, build, speed, and much more affordable and higher IQ lenses. Trying to find one good at stills and video (on the spec sheets) and you'll miss the lenses, sense-able menus and Nikon color, at 3 times this price. It's best to get in light with something you can get used to for a few years. They'll all wind up on the garage sale table for $20. Everything should be tried in your hands first. Stop shopping once you get one and go shoot. Stay strong.
