Having been working in the video business since 1988 I have amassed a great amount of knowledge of both the kit and production values over the last 30 years.

  1. I have the 90 I don’t see anything that would make me really want the A version. A wireless option? Big deal. If they improved the lens or something like that sure maybe.
