Re: Dance Recital Videography - Camera Upgrade Advice Needed

Thanks for all the help everyone. I went ahead and got myself 3 of the canon xf300. After seeing many samples and doing my research I am hoping this is the right unit.

Re: Dance Recital Videography - Camera Upgrade Advice Needed

Hey Nick,

I just read this thread. Are you buying the XFs' new or used? I would say the Penny PX270 or the upcoming Sony would be the way to go if you are buying new. The XF is a very fine camera but is showing its age against these cameras. Light sensitivity is the weakness of the XF cameras. The new Penny PX270 is more sensitive and cleaner regarding noise.

A used XF is still a good bargain imho.

...ability to deal with blue light is absolutely essential
Anyone know of a filter that might address this? somethng that hits the long end of the UV?
If the XHA1 gave adequate low light performance, not to worry about the XF series (or XA series for that matter)

I expect the XF200 low light capability to be similar to the AX20.
