Affordable quality!

Maurice, Rakuten

  • Summary: I bought this camera when I started my videography business about 4 years ago. Since then I have used in some rough conditions and it has never failed me. The video quality is excellent. I particularly like the XLR input which allows me to use external mics when recording interviews.

Makes you feel like a professional

mg!, Amazon

  • Summary: I've had this camera since 2007. I consider myself a prosumer filmmaker and not a cinematographer. My review is not applicable to professionals but geared towards a niche demographic who can afford not having technology be a culprit to better art.

$4000+ Camera with $800 image?

Cornelius Fortinbras III "fabled", Amazon
13 November 2009
  • Summary: This camera is unbelievably overpriced. It's like they priced it by the pound or by the button. The imagers are 1/3". Do you know how small that is? Stink out your pinky and look at the quick, smaller than that. Three of those, one for each color is what your image is recorded through.

great if not best HDV for price range.

Enmanuel Morales "enmo", Amazon

  • Summary: I did my research, and after about two weeks of online forums and reviews I settled on the XH A1 due to its great low-light performance. look for footage tests, comparisons with other non-canon models and siphon through This camera is probably the best model in its price range.

  • Summary: I have owned this camera for over 4 months and have loved it. I havent been able to do much work with it but in the little I have done it has served me well. I suggest that you buy a shot gun mike with it, nothing to fancy about 200$ is fine, also get a polarizing filter and a clear UV filter that...
  • Pros: Great HD image quality, lot of features for a modest price, down-converts to SD 16:9 and 4:3, for the price amazing low light!, XLR imputs, Phantom power.
  • Cons: The lens is non remove able, no 720p but i have never needed it, built in mike is low quality and is very loose!

Amazing Camera Great Entry Level

James L., Newegg
7 December 2008
  • Summary: I thought about waiting for generic P2 media to come out for the Panasonic, but for now it is just way too expensive to record onto solid state media.
  • Pros: Got this for a Documentary project. The picture is stunning, looks amazing on a high def LCD. XLR Audio inputs work great. This camera is relatively easy to use.
  • Cons: I had to get this somewhere else because newegg's price on this is thirty percent higher than other web stores. I wish newegg was as competitive with camera pricing as they are with computer parts.
