I am a wedding videographer and love the Canon XH-A1. I now own three of them. They are reliable, portable and yet serious enough to get the job done. The color reproduction is great in good lighting and better than most in low-light. Although the results are acceptable using the camera in auto mode, you can get some fabulous footage in manual mode if you know what you're doing. The optical stabilizer does a good job and the 20x zoom lens allows me to get in tight from a considerable distance. The onboard mic is not the greatest, but if you set it properly it will yield acceptable results. It can yield terrible results if you set the input gain too high, though, so use caution. The optional XLR input with phantom power is a great option. I use it for a shotgun mic on one of my A1's and have also used it to tap directly into the sound system at the event. Although HDV tape is more expensive I highly recommend using it because it does yield better results. Overall a great camcorder for the money.
I bought a Canon XL1 MiniDV camcorder in 1998 and this was my upgrade to advanced design and HD capability. I've had great luck with Canons and this "prosumer" model is being put to use as a "run & gun" unit acquiring footage for a reality TV pilot. Its feature set is not that complicated and gives a wide range of flexibility for many shooting situations, particularly the 24, 30 and 60 frame options as well as full manual. The images are gorgeous, and for a used unit that I got for $1000 less than retail of approx. $3500 I have no complaints. I would buy it again. It's well built, compact and versatile and produces images as good or better than more expensive cameras.
When a camera is used in a Hollywood feature film like "Crank 2" then it has to be good. The Canon XH A1 gives you what you pay for with superior picture quality, awesome focusing, ease of use, you can't go wrong with this camera. With so many options and controls it's no wonder this camera gets such high praise.
I love the camera. Since I first saw the camera, I really liked it. Now I have it in my hands and is spectacular, just love. It has many functions and shoot in SD and HDV. The suitcase that was included is excellent and fit perfectly all the camera accessories without stir or lost each other. The two batteries that was included provide a real long time. The only thing I did not like is that all the information displayed on the monitor of the camera is displayed on the external monitors where I connect my camera. I bought this camera to shoot the wedding of my brother and wanted it to have an excellent video quality.
