Really enjoy your reviews Larry, always find them informative.  On the Sony a5100 you might have mentioned that it even outputs uncompressed 422 video for professionals.  This is huge because it makes this small camera very viable for use with gimbal based stabilizer like MoVI, The Ghost, DJI Ronin and others.  Keep up the good work.  Thanks again.
