Canon XH A1 no longer in stock?

So strange - was getting ready to finally purchase the Canon XH A1 when I notice in the past week many retailers have stopped carrying it (such as Amazon, BuyDig, Adorama, J&R (out of stock) - although B&H still have it for $2999) or have seriously ramped up the prices to nearly that of the newer XH A1s

Is Canon stopping production of the XH A1?

XH-A1s is the new improved model, why would they continue making XH-A1?

I agree, but there is a $500-600 price difference... just wondering if it was official they had stopped producing the XH A1 now....

Yes, it's official. The older XH A1 and XH G1 have been replaced by the XH A1S and XH G1S.

Prices on the new models are the *same* as the older ones when they were *first introduced.*

Hope this helps,

Buying the updated "s" version also should provide an additional ~3 years of factory parts support, if that is important. The lower price is likely clearing out stock.
