Thanks. Aperture priority mode with aperture at f8, .8 ND filter. I use "push-to-focus" AF and then manually tweak if necessary (like sometimes for close objects). Zlog for "color", tweaked in post with curves and saturation.

I think the title of the thread is misleading. Where is this camera available at the title price of $249? The manufacturer's website lists a nominal RRP of $699. B&H have is at $499, still twice the title price. Seriously, at $249 it would be a steal!

It sold for from $199 to $249 for about a month. Where were you then? And many, many people bought it at those prices, so it was a #1 bestseller at BHPhotoVideo. Perhaps there will be another sale. But now that the camera is known, that may be less likely.

I bought it at $199, taking a chance that the camera was good. And it is!

OK, I stand corrected.

Sorry I missed those prices, I will have to wait and see.

You should keep an eye on the used market because the camera won't be suitable for everyone who purchased at those prices
