The gist

  • Excerpt: Typical Canon. Picture Quality is Terrific, as it usually is with Canon. Like everything in life, it's a scale; you give, you get. So terrific picture comes at the cost of a sh*tty UI and buggy / shotty WiFi feature.
  • Pros: Good Image Stabilization, Great Picture Quality
  • Cons: Complicated To Operate, Limited Zoom

No quick settings in and out of most used features.

  • Summary: XA20, XA25, HF G30 (same cmos, same menus) This camera works great for my use of corporate video recording. However it doesn't meet it's potential. I'd hope that firmware, Magic Lantern or SDK would solve.

  • Pros: Easy to Use, Good Image Stabilization, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD
  • Cons: Poor Image Quality, Poor In Low Light
