XA20 and Metering
I recently purchased the XA20 (upgrading from the A1). I am perhaps embarrassed to say that I miss being able to meter my exposure. I called Canon and they suggested using the Zebra stripes.

The OLED is impressive, but I feel like users are suppose to "eye ball" their exposure now. What am I missing?

Re: XA20 and Metering
Zebra allow you to identify which highlights are about to be blown out. Arguably more valuable in terms of the final image than the litle bar in the top left of the XH-A1 viewfinder.
