    dafak. ang mamahal ng mga caerang yan. Overpriced! Tas wala pang optical image stabilization. EIS is so old school. Why would you buy that camera eh pwede kanang makabili ng xperia z series smartphones.Tas kung gusto mo talaga ng action cam, try to search about the xiaomi Yi camera.Sobrang affordable tas yung video and image quality niya is not so bad, very useable for social media sharing.
