Re: need a b-cam for my 5d: m41, G10 or XA-10?

I have the XA10 and the rattle issue is not an issue for me at all. I don't do walking shots much and if I do I would walk much more smoothly than you are Fredrico. If I can see the camera shake with each step as I can see in your video, then I am not walking properly.

In any event, as a professional videographer there is plenty of ambient noise (weddings, etc) that make the rattle a non-issue. In any event my walking shots are normally edited out or set to music. On a steadicam it wouldn't occur. During normal shooting using proper technique the rattle will not occur. It is, to me much ado about nothing. Technically one could complain, but on a practical level, it's not important to me, and it shouldn't be for most people who are using proper shooting technique.

On the other hand, for doc or ENG purposes, I could see it as an issue, but in that case you are likely using a more advanced camera. If your specific style requires that you shoot in a way that you will hear the rattle, you might have problems.
