  • Summary: I've owned the Optura Xi since June 2004 and my experience has been wonderful. I am a novice user in that I have not spent a lot of time learning the intricacies of the many, many features on this camcorder, such as the aperture settings and things of that nature and outside of using the zoom...

Awesome High End Consumer DVCam

  • Summary: My dream camcorder would the GL2, but that’s out of my price range. This Optura Xi is stellar however. I bought both the Optura Xi and the Panasonic 3 CCD camera and did my own testing.

Wonderful performer in its price range.

19 March 2005
  • Summary: After considerable research, comparing this unit to the similarly priced Sony TRV70/TRV80, and the 3CCD Panasonic PV-DV953, I opted for the Canon Optura Xi. I wanted a digital camcorder: 1. That was compact enough to "take it along" without it being a hinderance 2.

Love this Camcorder

Amazon
3 January 2005
  • Summary: Purchased this Camcorder in January 2003. Did lots of research on comparable Panasonic and Sony models - was totally confused, finally went with the Optura Xi. Am very very happy - yes, it is bigger than the very small models. But I find it very comfortable to work with.

Best value fo rmoney - awesome picture quality

DreamTheater, Amazon
11 December 2004
  • Summary: I recently purchased this camera for $1000 (with the $200 rebate) this was a steal. I had a Canon ZR65 earlier and I wasn't too happy with it's low light performance and hence decided to buy this camera. The other thing I didn't like about the ZR65 was it's inability to reproduce true colors.

Almost as good as a GL2, for half the price

  • Summary: I bought my Canon Optura Xi two months ago. I almost bought a Canon GL2, until I studied the spec sheets. Both camcorders have the same features: 16-bit stereo recording; f/1.6 lens; 11x zoom; Av, Tv, and manual exposure control, etc.
