Shots you got with the XA10 you wouldn't have gotten with another cam..

Anybody care to list some of the shots you were able to get with your XA10/G10 you might not have been able to get with another cam? For me it's probably some Airport shots (no handle or shade) in foreign airposts I would have attracted too much attention with my larger cam. There were a few hiking shots I wouldn't have taken my larger cam. Anyone have a story or two to share?

Hmm, I think you probably need to qualify that a bit more as in shots you wouldn't have got with another camera with the same output quality.




But saying that, I've come from an DSLR background, and you can pretty much get one of those cams anywhere with just as good if not better quality.

I think you need to specify the "another cam" for a give shot. While the XA10/G10 provides an arguably unique combination of capabilities at its price point, any given capability can probably be matched by another camcorder at some, perhaps much higher, price.

I think they're referring to the fact that the camera is light and fairly small and can get into tight places.
