Great camera, terrible battery

C. Sim, Amazon

  • Summary: I'll just quickly echo what everyone else is saying - this camera is great! Easy to use yet also complex enough to do whatever you want. We use the XLR inputs with no problem. The one issue as many others have said - the battery. That's terrible.

Very Good Camera

Johnboy076, B&H Photo
26 July 2015
  • Excerpt: I like this camera in the field. BUT a few things bother me. First, the lens shade "clicks" into place but with a few bumps the shade can come unlatched and rotate, a lock would have been better.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Great Picture Quality, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Zoom range/performance

  • Summary: The lens and image qulity is good. The camera takes a very long time to go to work, 2-3sec, so the best option to close the LCD and leave the camera on. Switch off only, when you sure, you will not to use it for a longer period. But this takes up the battary. The playing back is awfull at all.

First rate entry-level pro camera -

Tigo, Crutchfield
4 May 2015
  • Summary: You won't do any better than the Canon XA-20 (or it's consumer-oriented kid brother, the HF g30)! The features set and image quality outstrips many so-called "professional cameras". We bought our XA-20 from Crutchfield to join the Canon HF g30 we used to shoot 30 hours of a documentary last year.
  • Pros: Great in low light. Full manual control sets, with great options to create custom presets. Amazingly god auto-modes for those urgent 'run and gun situations' where you simply have no time to set focus, exposure and white balance.
  • Cons: Compact XA-20 form factor frets some clients! Many still think "size does matter" when it comes to production cameras. Absurd as it is in the digital age, they'd rather see a 'ginormous' shoulder-mount camera because it "looks real". Never mind that the image quality is 5x better on the XA-20! We...
