  • Summary: This canon is a solid pro camera, but it is lacking in some much needed features at its core. It should have a larger sensor to deal with lo light. The Sony's by comparison have larger sensors, and thus are better suited for lower light.

  • Excerpt: I bought this camera to shoot daily stuff at the hospital I work at now. So far so good. I had my eye on this camera since last year at NAB. Looked at it again this year, and told myself this is the camera for me. I like that it records on CF cards.

Bottom line: get it

  • Excerpt: We field-tested the XF305 in documentary production over a three week period. Bottom line? We really regretted having to give it back to Canon, but we deferred buying four of our own. One of the reasons for using a camcorder rather than a cinema camera is the servo zoom lens.

  • Excerpt: Purchased this camera after using Sony HVR Z7U for a number of years and not disappointed. Main reason was the use of CF cards. Still trying to make adjustments in low light situations, but feel confident I will get it. Lots of features that make shooting a pleasure.

Good Quality Overall

  • Excerpt: I am a professional in-house videographer and I use it for documentary style shooting. it shoots in great quality and the features are easy to handle. The one thing that wasn't the best for what I do is that it is a little heavy and hard to handhold, without a shoulder mount.

Step in the right direction

  • Excerpt: I am a semi-pro user. Mostly amatuer stuff like weddings, events, amatuer sports and some ENG work. This camera is a good step for Canon into the professional market. While still a long-GOP scheme, the color and clarity is fantastic compared to other Canon video cameras I've used including the still...

The Little camera that could

Dabbler, Amazon

  • Summary: Ok, lets face it this isn't your typical consumer camcorder. At this price you could buy a few others and still have some change left over... This is the real thing, used by the BBC across the world to make programmes and they wouldn't be using it unless it performed. This is the benchmark.
