A couple interesting accessories.
 
PortaBrace has a soft case for the XA20/25. Model CS-XA20/25. B&H has on special until the end of October it for $119 plus shipping. Will fit the XA10 and similar as well. Good space inside. While not perfect, after one day I am quite satisfied with it.

The XA20 lost the component output jack that the XA10 had (replace by the separate headphone jack?) . A work-around is a HDMI-to-component & audio converter. I picked up a KanexPro from B&H for $59. At first use it seems to works well with XA20 recordings. However, the reviews say that it does respect copy protection/digital rights management (not an issue for camcorder recordings).
