Canon XH-A1

 

Ever since the advent of digital video, Canon has been the uncontested king of prosumer level camcorders. From the all-conquering XL-1, to its elite H...

Exceptional high-definition image quality, huge level of customisability, professional components and design

Represents good value for money -- but only to those who can afford it, tiny low resolution LCD screen

Falling somewhere between the professional and high-end consumer markets, the XH-A1 is an outstanding high-definition camera that should suit anyone who is career minded about video.

Canon XH A1

 

Wedding videographers and indie film-makers should check out Canon's XH A1 if they require high-defintion output.

Outlook Though an impressive HD camera, its price (AU$6,499) and weight (2.33kg) means that this is not a camera for the average consumer, however its intended audience (independent film-makers, wedding videographers or serious and well-heeled...

Canon XH A1

 

This is a compact and light weight pro HDV camcorder. It is perfect for documentary filmmaking. Excellent image quality.

Excellent image quality, Light weight, High quality Canon lenses, Similar functions to the Canon XL camcorder range

No interchangeable lenses, Needs a shoulder mount set up, Plastic looking camera

Seen far better for this price range. The record stand by time is too short and the eye piece is terrible! Blurry and very small. The LCD screen is quite small too. Much prefer the Sony Z1 or save up and buy a P2.

Amazing Camcorder! Can't wait to get it. Not too big but not too small. Price is CHEAP!

Cheap, Good size, Lots of features, based on the XL-H1, Looks cool

24F isn't as good as 24p, but close to it

Canon XH A1

 

I've heard nothing but goods reviews on this new Canon HD Camcorder and I intend to purchase one in a few months when the novelty wears off and the price comes down

Shares "most" of the features of the much more expensive XL-H1

Doesn't permit interchangeable lenses
