Excerpt: This little baby pack great smooth video with XLR options. Made to take professional videos without the bull crop. Mount you a light and put it on the tripod and it's better then all these full frame cameras that is made for pictures and not videos.
Excerpt: I ordered this camera for video blogging - white backdrop/infinite white video shooting. So far it has been great. I needed something where I could adjust the white balance and the focus (old camera would go in and out of focus) AND plug in so the battery wouldn't run out in the middle of shooting - this camera is awesome, the the video quality is great and it solves of of my issues with my old camera.
Pros: Easy to Use, Great Picture Quality, Zoom range/performance
Excerpt: There are a lot of good, detailed reviews of this camera already, but I had a few things I wanted to mention in as consise a way as possible. This camera is very small. That makes it great for travel, or if you're a pro trying to cram way too much into a pack already, ideal. Because it's so small, a lot of things pros are used to aren't easily accesible. You have to dig through menus on the touch screen to adjust things like exposure on the fly for example.
Pros: Easy to Use, Good Image Stabilization, Great Picture Quality, Great Sound
Excerpt: Anyone who buys this camera likely knows what they are looking for and will be happy when they get it. They are looking for a professional, easy to use camcorder that produces quality video. Well that's what the XA10 delivers quality video. I am happy with my purchase. My only wish would be for a larger lens (which is why only 4 stars) and for that you would need to go the DSLR route.
Pros: Easy to Use, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Great Picture Quality, Zoom range/performance
Excerpt: The video quality on this camera is excellent. I'm using it to film sit down interviews and with all the options of color temperature correction and iris and shutter speed I get the results I'm looking for. Love the two XLR mic inputs and being able to read the audio levels. Great professional camera for a reasonable price!
Pros: Easy to Use, Good Image Stabilization, Great Picture Quality, Great Sound, Large Clear LCD
Excerpt: I'm truly amazed with the quality of this small camera. I do quite a bit of shooting commercials, getting accustomed to the smallness of camera. Nevertheless, it's a learning curve and kind of fun. Right now figuring the best way to use wireless microphones and finding a spot to attach or configure "close by" the input for use. Downloading files, very easy and quick, that is terrific since I had read reviews it could be problematic.
Pros: Easy to Use, Great Picture Quality, Large Clear LCD, Zoom range/performance
Excerpt: I purchased this product to replace an older SD camera in the same price category (professional under $2,000). I record weddings and live events in a rural area. The picture quality has been great. The manual settings are tedious to navigate in the touch screen menu. However, I knew that it would from researching the product. I could not find a shotgun mic that would fit correctly in the mic holder and had to tape what I had for a secure fit.
Pros: Easy to Use, Good Image Stabilization, Great Picture Quality, Large Clear LCD
Excerpt: This camera is very small. It was purchased as the first camera for the church media ministries. It is easy to use it does have some bells and whistles like professional cameras but it does not feel like you are using a professional camera.
