In Summary, this camera has lots of image processing programming going on in the camera at the time of the shoot, so you don't have to do it later. At a relative low cost, I think this is an additional camera many serious photographers would want to have.
Hint to buyers: Since it seems to only ship out of Japan, download the ENGLISH operators manual first, so you can convert the menu's from Japanese to English, then you are ready to go!
Have not done much with the movie functions other than real-time (20-60fps) clips. Focus and exposure tracking are good. Not a lot of focus hunting during pans or zooms. The built-in intervalometer looks like it will do the job for basic time lapse movies up to one hour shoot time. Ironically, I have not yet tried the HS movie mode for which I purchased the camera. Others I've talked to say it is useful up to about 240fps above which point the resolution declines unacceptably and the amount of light needed becomes extreme. Again, this is hear say on my part but I trust the source.
The controls depart in a major way from senior DSLR's. Operating the camera becomes an exercise in selecting from a mind numbing array of presets for every conceivable shooting situation - both still and motion photography. This can be good for non-photographers but no matter what, it forces the user to at least learn a large subset of the presets in order to get maximum good out of the camera. Oh sure, there are totally automatic modes but if that's all you plan on doing, ask yourself why you are buying the camera in the first place. Perhaps the phone camera does all you need.
Still, apart from these two issues, it is the best digital camera I know of. It is quite accurate, starts up rapidly, presents the taken image as a miniature in the bottom right corner of the display while you can go on taking the next photo, and the next one, and the next... Of course, there are more possible settings than I have use for. It has a couple of pretty good settings for night photography, and two excellent auto programmes, to mention a few.
