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!

One of the best Prosumer cams

M. Nothelfer "Fuzzy Normal", Amazon
7 July 2008
  • Summary: I own it. I use it a lot. 9 months now and it's still working fine. No drop outs on the tapes and I've put it through some challenging climates as well as racking up significant hours shooting and digitizing.

2nd best HDV prosumer camcorder ever made.

Jeff Aski, Amazon
15 January 2008
  • Summary: This camera has two weaknesses: 1. 2.7" LCD screen 2. Flimsy front camera microphone Everything else destroys all other HDV cameras except for one: the SONY Z7U. The only advantage the XHA1s has over the Z7U is the price point.

Great but could be better

Robert Cozzi, Amazon
15 January 2008
  • Summary: In short, I love it. The XH A1 is a professional looking camera and has all the features you need. It is a bit complex for those who are not true prosumers or pros, and the manual is not consumer oriented. The picture qualitity is, so far, the best I've seen in non-pro cameras.

BEWARE - Canon refuses to sell/provide a service manual for the Canon XH A1

Ezra Thunder, Amazon
15 January 2008
  • Summary: I have owned the Canon XH A1 for more than two years, and I love the quality of the High Def., BUT I now have lint behind my viewfinder that I find impossible to reach and remove, and my built-in microphone is sagging.
