That's great as I really like the new Canons. Better low light vs. the HFS-10 is one thing I am looking for. looks like a really viable alternative to the HMC40.

And It looks like the interface-the menu and how it navigates- on the XA10 is miles ahead of the HFS-10--that's a good thing for sure.

But I too do wish they had included 1080/60p ala Panasonic. Oh well, everything else important seems to be present and accounted for.

It will be released in march. And if you Google, you will find a review of the XA10 that compares it with the TM-700 and last years Canon model.

Eric, I saw that yesterday in addition to the M41 being 'in stock' on Amazon. Today however it seems as if they took it down and once again the message 'product has not yet been relesaed'. So I wonder if they really ever got any in.

These have actually been available for pre-order for a few weeks now.

hmm, since it's announcement BH has always stated available in March, a few days ago however BH stated available in April, which made me mad, but then yesterday I saw it was up for pre-order. So who knows? Maybe June :D

That video, while inconclusive, is very interesting. Based upon it, the XA10 seems to have a little better image quality overall.

I'd like to see a comparison of picture quality of the XA10 compared to the Panasonic TM900.

Re: Canon XA10 and HFG10 pics and impressions - CES 2011

I'm really happy with the low light reviews of the Canon XA10 & HFG10. That last German review seems to say that low light performance was just a step down from the 7D, and all other reviews I've seen indicate similar results. One review rates the HFG10 and 7D as almost equal in low light sensitivity & noise. The only low light metric where the 7D pulls away is color performance.

So the trade off seems to be: interchangeable lenses and DOF abilities with aliasing & moire issues vs a properly designed but fixed lens video camcorder. Either way, great choices all around.

It would be interesting to actually see some testing between the 7D, 60D, etc against the HF-G10/ XA10 and see what the results really are. Seems pretty incredible if it can really come so close to the 7D, with its much larger chip.

With what lens? The 7d is horrible in low light with the f3.5 kit lens but pretty damn good with an f1.4 lens.

Is the XA10 as good as the 7d with a f1.4 lens? Or as bad with the f3.5?
