Just one problem -- too big to handhold, too small to shoulder mount.

Mike b, Amazon
9 May 2011
  • Summary: I have used the Canon XH-AIS for about 3 months now. The lens is totally awesome. The camera does a great job with automatic White Balance, Auto Focus and Aperture. No, my problem is that I can't hold it still. It's quite long, so it's gonna shake a little unless you have hands bigger than a gorilla's. That means that (speaking for myself), I can't get a good, steady picture without a tripod - and that's a crushing restriction.

"The "Service Center" is more like a "Profit Center""

  • Pros: Got lots of good video from it!
  • Cons: I've heard from many others that my MiniDV casing would fry. Well, it finally happened. I drove it 100 miles to Irvine, CA and was relieved that they would fix it for $50 + shipping. (Figured they must be aware of a manufacturing design problem). Nope

"Quality is definitely 5 stars connectivity is 0"

  • Pros: The images in HD and SD are very good, crisp and clean just like canon always does.
  • Cons: No compatibility with vista. Even Mac users have issues with connectivity to this camera. READ the forums out there and see all the issues people have with getting vista to recognize the cam, it is definitely a headache you might want to avoid.

HDV is only good for cost conscious shooters

Navarro L. Parker "Motion Graphics Dude", Amazon
24 November 2007
  • Summary: HDV is only a way to get near-HD recording for cheap. If cost is more important than image quality, then HDV is the way to go. This camera claims "True 1080" resolution. Unfortunately, that's a marketing term that is meaningless. No HDV camera can capture true HD 1080 resolution on tape which is defined as 1920x1080 pixels. The HDV format is limited to 1440x1080 and ultra-crummy 4:2:0 color sampling. Plus HDV's MPEG-2 codec is notoriously funky to edit with.

Canon XHA1

Александр, click.abc.ru
27 November 2013
  • Summary: В целом камера неплохая, но из-за количества недостатков, я скорее не приобрёл бы её, если бы мне дали ей попользоваться заранее. Возможно ко всему можно привыкнуть, но скорее всего я буду вынужден её продать, т.к. мои требования несколько завышены к подобного рода технике.
  • Pros: 1. Неплохой стабилизатор изображения. 2. Можно отключить светодиод записи на микрофоне, что позволяет вести запись и не "светиться". 3. Весьма неплохо работает режим "прожектор", но остается загадкой, что он там меняет.
  • Cons: 1. Не удобно работать с затвором (основной метод регулировки яркости кадра без нарушения картинки [размытие фона]) 2. Автоматически не определяет, что вставлено в XLR разъём, приходится лазеть в меню, переключать. 3. Переключатели XLR разъёмов на корпусе неграмотно подписаны. 4. Нет возможности зафиксировать резкозть от случайного поворота кольца, которое в свою очередь слишком широкое. 5. Кольцо зума можнобыло бы расширить за счёт кольца резкости. 6. Отсутствует...
