  • Excerpt: The picture quality is definitely commendable on this camera, except when using the photograph function - this is however a problem with many videocameras. Canon have concentrated on the lens and semi-professional, to professional functions on this camera and have not cluttered it with effects.
  • Pros: Picture quality, interface/functionability, weight, size
  • Cons: Sound quality, can't charge and mains power simultaneously

  • Pros: Excellent lens quality, clear image, good colour reproduction, manual overrides, colour viewfinder
  • Cons: Not brilliant in low light, mic could be better, not HD

A great little camcorder but for what purpose?

  • Excerpt: To start with the Xm2 is a great bit of technology packed tightly into a neat package. It is easy to carry and is reasonable to operate handheld. The picture quality I find varies allot depending on what quality DV tape you use.
  • Pros: Small and therfore light camera with good lens and sharp image
  • Cons: Manual picture controls not on the outside if camera

Semi-Pro XM2, excellence from Canon

alexscott, Ciao
11 May 2006
  • Excerpt: Myself and a few friends came up with a few ideas for short films and at the time we used my old Sony HC14E camera (before it was stolen in a burglary!). We called the HC14E our crash-cam as it certainly was put through the war-zones (paintball matches, in-car shots, drops and even ran over!).
  • Pros: Lightweight, excellent picture quality, ease of use, hot - shoe for attachments
  • Cons: Manual isn't so helpful .  Not so good with low - light conditions .
