Re: AG-AC130 OR Sony NEX-EA50 ??

Hi Scott

In January 2012 I decided to replace my Panasonic HMC80's with the Panasonic AC-130 but after a nightmare 3 months of issues I sold them in early April and went back to Panasonic HMC80's again which I kept under December 2012.

I technically "jumped ship" in January this year and moved from Panasonic to Sony after being a dedicated Panny fan for over 20 years and bought two of Sony's EA-50's

Remember I really do love shoulder mount cameras for the kind of work I do (Weddings and Real Estate) so the built-in shoulder mount on the EA-50 was a big factor in deciding plus the fact that I can use all my Nikon still lenses on the Sony too.

So far I have really been over the moon with both EA-50's and they are perfect for my business and my shooting style.

Just for interest I made up shoulder-mount rigs for my AC-130's and also loupes so I could use the LCD as a viewfinder rather than rely on the tiny EVF at the back ... If you need to use your 130 on your shoulder just yell and I'll send you the information and pics
