Rated 4 out of 5 by from Affordable 4K Camera I was surprised with the new 4 K recording Panasonic camera that I got from my brother a few months before , I liked its new features like adding the LCD screen not found in its processor the A 100 camera and its semi ragged design that makes it the best choice for me as I travel a lot and I always need something to remind me of my important moments .
