This thing actually makes for a really neat, budget video camera platform.
It works perfectly for lenses made for old 16mm film cameras, so you can pick up a very wide variety of characterful lenses for unbearably good prices.
The results from this thing absolutely punch well above its weight, I'm really excited to see what else I can do with it as I augment the kit just a bit.
The big issues are all issues you can solve. It's small, so hard to keep steady without some sort of rig. It's manual focus only, so you need a follow focus. It's got a very small display, so you need to add a larger display for accurate focusing.
Each of those is very approachable and you'll end up with a very versatile, lightweight, but feature-rich camera platform!
