I am absolutely in Love with this camera! It stands up to the challenge in low light, image quality and it knows how to focus and stay in focus and does it all very quickly. I made the initial mistake of purchasing the SonyHXR-NX100 and returned promptly in less than a week and swapped it for this...
Better battery life than the XA20 or 25. All, XA 20,25 and 30 perform well giving a quality product. The major drawback is controls size for larger hands. Easy 4+ star rating.
Reliable with quality imaging.
Small controls for larger hands.
Great camcorder. Easy to use, set up and shoot. I really like the audio hook ups because I can plug my senheiser mic directly into this camcorder without any adaptor. The different shooting modes are easy to use, and even manual mode is doable for a novice like me.
This is my second XA 30. Love the quality, versatility, and ease of use. Small, but packed with tremendous amount of pro features. Can't say enough about it.
I use this camcorder to film civic theater. The video files are turned into DVDs for the cast to critique their performance. This camcorder is perfect for this job. Small, easy to operate, pro functions, and not over priced.
Documentary film maker. This is a great companion for two camera shoot with Canon XA20. Sync the timecode and you have a wonderful multi angle option for live events. I also use this camera on my telecines bench for film transfers, works well.
I'm not a 'seasoned pro' but I'm moving that direction. I did a fair amount of research because I need a very good camera that will serve me for a few years. This is it. All the features I need; real quality; easy to learn and use . . . and the price is right.
Really excited about this camera. This was purchased for professional use. So, far it's been easy to use and produces a great quality video. It's also light weight and easy to handle. Really excited to use it more.
Fun, useful little camera, but not really a "pro" camera IMHO. I've shot with Canon gear (C100, 5Dii, 5Diii) as well as Sony FS7.WHAT WORKS:Small.Convenient.Fantastic zoom range.And size. Love how small it is.WHAT'S JUST OK:The LCD is fine indoors. Marginal outdoors.
this is a good camera,,,,,,,,,ok with it
