Excerpt: I have been very pleased with the quality of the camera. The overall construction appears to be quite sturdy, and the flexibility that multiple zoom rockers affords is a welcome relief from my previous camera. However, I have found one small quirk that I think would be useful to highlight.
Pros: Easy to Use, Good Image Stabilization, Great Picture Quality, Great Sound, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD
Summary: Although I've only had this camera for a few days, I already love it, and its features. The picture is amazing, crystal clear, true colors, and the compact size makes it a winner, replacing my former XL2 camera of ten pounds.
Summary: Overall, I like this package. The camera and accessories are great for the price. A few items were not included in my shipment which I have called about and they assure me they are on their way. Can't wait to use the XA-25. I currently have the XA10 and it has performed excellent.
Summary: Awesome products, delivered new as promised. Great bundle for the semi-pro. The only thing I had an issue with was the tripod. It seems to be a little cheap. However, given the value of the remainder of the product and the price, I am extremely happy.
Summary: For my uses, I have found the perfect video camera, absolutely love it and in my opinion, takes superb video. I do a lot of nature and family history stuff, and for my own enjoyment small video productions of various sorts and also some "utube" stuff," .

Pros: Easy to Use, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Great Picture Quality
Summary: I thought long and hard about buying this XA25. I was almost sold on a Canon XA-10 until I started looking at the Canon XA-20. I then compared the XA-20 to this XA-25 and took a few days of going back and forth until buying the Canon XA-25.
