Great video quality, compact size but expensive, XLR audio noisy

MEDIAHOUND, Amazon

  • Summary: This camcorder has wonderful HD video quality and super fast autofocus but the audio XLR preamp handle attachment feels like it was an after thought and is not of very high quality, it has a high noise floor! I heard a constant hiss whenever I used it with an XLR mic plugged in to the XLR port.

Not all it's cracked-up to be...

Adam Woodhams, Amazon

  • Summary: I'm a multi-media content creator on a tight budget who bought this camera looking for something that was a step above the high-end domestic-type camera I'd been using. The XA10 looked to tick all my boxes for features, flexibility and price.

  • Pros: Lightweight

Horrible Zoom design & positioning

Mediahouse, B&H Photo
14 August 2011
  • Excerpt: Avoid using zoom with this camera. Make the lens as wide as possible and leave it there. Do not use zoom. Instead, you move… as if using a prime lens. It is a good camera with good image quality and worth for price. Good focus assist, image stabilization.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Good Image Stabilization, Great Picture Quality, Large Clear LCD
  • Cons: Jerky zoom, Wrong positioning of zoom
