Since you have already tested the EX1, it looks like it is time to test the XF300. It would be interesting to hear a report of your findings.

Re: Need some expert advise

@Sam... another thing to consider is power. The EX1 is 12v. That means the same battery that runs the camera will run standard accessories like lights and external recorders. The Swit batteries for the EX1 have a d-tap (aka ptap) connector in addition to the tail that runs the camera. This power arrangement opens up all kinds of options. In contrast, the XF30x is a 7.4 volt camera. Further, it's battery is entrapped in the camera body with a fiddly door (I am told)
