Re: New from Canon XA30 XA35

<rant>

Don't believe that article. It lists Australian Dollar prices for these models, but that is bull$#!t. As previously, Canon is releasing all these models in the NTSC world, but the crappiest, most cut down model, the R706 in PAL land. You think these are bad cameras, try the R706. At least the higher end NTSC versions get mic in and headphones out. But they are all missing the mini hot shoe.

These cameras produce a nice image, at least my HF200 does, and it is in the same series of camcorders, why did they have to go and bugger them up after this? It now seems that if you want to get something decent in this range you have to go to the HF G series. At $1300 it is a bit too much for what you get, and what you can get elsewhere.

Canon has lost the plot.

Re: New from Canon XA30 XA35

Canon has totally dropped the ball... compare to the just released Sony FDR-AX53 4K Ultra HD Handycam Camcorder which is priced at $998 (and that is NEW LIST PRICE). I expect the price will be under $800 within a few months.

Re: New from Canon XA30 XA35

I usually agree with Canon dropping the ball, but if it has better sensitivity and a pseudo log it could be interesting anyway.
