Summary: I wish it did better in low light but it works and has great quality overall. I enjoy the ring for rack focus and other features. I have recommended this kind of camera to several friends and they all enjoy it. Some got a simpler version for shooting family stuff but I use it for shooting short films and documentary. I have increased it's capability with the rig that I bought for it. It's stable and great quality in decent lighting.
Summary: This camera is simply awesome, period! I initially was looking at the "little brother" of this cam that has but one MOS sensor (this one has THREE) and there is no comparison; if you're gonna jump, jump in BIG! If you record at an event and want to playback on hi def TV this is second to none for the money. This camera is a LOT more machine than I waa ready for and every time I use it I learn more.
Summary: nothing in this time can bit this camera up to 5000$.I tray and return mani of them the new canons xf100 cost 3000$ and i return it the picture quality was bed very bed moire and moskito effect.im not recomed it this xf100..
Summary: In answer to Tropi, it comes with HD-Writer software to transfer stuff to PC via USB cable (supplied), but no editor. Adobe Premiere Elements (about 80 quid) is recommended and can handle all formats; Cyberlink Power Director (cheaper) can handle most, but not the top-whack 1080p.
This is a serious camera and needs a serious PC to work with it. Mine has an i5 CPU and 6GB RAM, but you could probably get away with less if you don't mind waiting longer for the results.
Pros: Just about everything, especially the image stabiliser
Cons: Availability of filters etc (only a 46mm thread)
Summary: Pros: - 1080p@60fps in MTS format - versatile light and easy to use and handle in travel conditions - manual mode very intuitive and descriptive menu -reliable 240 GB HDD storage space.At 1 hour of full HD@60fps record it took about 12 GB of space divined in 4.4 GB files automatically. - super fine low light with the manual setting of downgrade 30 fps especially created for this purpose.
Summary: This review is in portuguese. As imagens dessa câmeras são absurdamente impressionantes! Ela atende tanto usuários avançados quanto comuns. As configurações manuais permitem, dentre outras coisas, utilizar o foco manual, exposição de luz manual, contraste e muitas outras funcionalidades para usuários que gostam de configurar manualmente a filmadora. Contudo, ressalto que as imagens do modo automático são fantásticas.
Summary: We have just received our camera this weekend but when we ordered it we were very happy with the pricing of it. To us it was a steal when we were pricing it out. So far we have only had a little bit of time to try it out but we are enjoying it so far. We wish we would have been told that we needed a mini-hdmi cable when we ordered it but other that that we love it.
Summary: I won't bore you with the technical aspects because that's been covered by everyone else. Essentially you get the best image quality of any consumer size/price, manual features, powered OIS which is fantastic, and a large HDD that saves you significantly compared to getting high speed SD cards. Having the HDD also keeps you from having to constantly pull the videos off the cam and then to the computer since you have space to spare. The video quality? Great.
