A1 vs G1 Differences?

Can someone tell me main differences in the A1 and G1? I noticed the Professional Jack Plate but That was it. Is there more to it that that?

In terms of image quality is there any difference. Any low light performance differences or anything like that?

See The Watchdog's Unofficial XH Series F.A.Q.

"The only difference between the XH G1 and XH A1, is that the G1 offers uncompressed HD output over Serial Digital Interface (SDI) as well as GenLock input and Time Code input and output. The A1 doesn't have SDI, GenLock or TC input and output. Other than that, they're exactly alike. I suppose Canon is offering two different models so that if you need SDI and GenLock, etc., then it's there on the G1; and if you don't need those specialized features then you don't have to buy them, you can get the A1 instead."

Hope this helps,
