Online Test Footage?

I am looking to get a new camera, but want to see some test footage first before committing to anything. Maybe this is a stupid question, but does anyone know of a place online that has test footage/examples from different cameras? The only place I can seem to find anything is on Youtube and all the stuff on it, well, looks like it's from Youtube. Or maybe someone has footage online they can point to from a camera they really like and recommend. I'm looking in the $3000 - $4000 range and need it to shoot 24p.

Thanks in advance.

Still Motion did a promo for the Canon XH A1 that you can see here:
StillMotionBlog.com corporate

Just scroll down The Canon Expo - The Video.
It helped me a lot when I was shopping for a camera.

You might try exposureroom.com I believe you can search by camera type and view different work utilizing the specified camera.

We shoot Canon A1's and love the image quality we get out of the cameras. There are presets that are great to have and you can find those presets on this great forum. Look under the thread for A1

Good luck.
