Excerpt: I use this camcorder for interviews as well as events. It can be really used in any setting and is always gong to be a much better option than a DSLR. The size of the camera is somewhat smaller than what most would expect but when it needs to, it can deliver. Out of the box, this camera is HORRIBLE.
Pros: Good Image Stabilization, Great Picture Quality, Great Sound, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Zoom range/performance
Excerpt: I didn't give this a 5 star rating only because nothing is perfect, although I havent come across anything I don't like so far. But here's the thing: LEARN to use this camera, not by reading the manual but by taking one of the great online courses available.
Pros: Good in Low Light, Great Picture Quality, Great Zoom
Summary: This is a great professional camera. The video quality is excellent. Besides, I have no problems with low light recordings. The only negative thing I have to say about it; the exterior microphone mount isn't very stable (only 2 screws that attaches the mount to the camera).
Summary: If you want a high-end camera that is an affordable entry into the foray of pro equipment THIS is your best value. I bought two of these and have been very impressed! They are holding up very well to all the elements and banging around I subject them to.
Excerpt: This camera is great it is my frist pro camera and a little complicated at first. I have only been using it for a couple of weeks and am getting to know most of the functions quickly. Can't wait to see what else this camera can do.
Pros: Easy to Use, Great Picture Quality, Great Sound, Large Clear LCD

Summary: This is definitely a professional grade camera that is still with in the price an armature can afford. What I like is the price the ease of use and the small size of the camera. What could be better would be for Cannon to provide a manual that better explained to a non professional why and when each...
Excerpt: This camera produces terrific images - especially in ideal conditions (well-lit interiors, bright exteriors). Not all that bad in low light but that's what DSLRs are for, no? Great size also makes it ideal for travel (I can fit this camera and 2 DSLRs in my Kata backpack).
Excerpt: Soy productor de televisión con más de 30 años de experiencia profesional y estoy por viajar a Colombia para producir un documental sobre mi trabajo (arte) con soldados que sufren las secuelas de las minas antipersonal.
Pros: Easy to Use, Good Image Stabilization, Great Picture Quality, Great Sound
Excerpt: I upgraded from canon gl2 to xf100. Really like the size as well as how easy it is to adjust key settings by touch of button and not through menus. The menu is easy to navigate and LCD screen is nice size.
Pros: Easy to Use, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Great Picture Quality, Great Sound, Large Clear LCD
