Expert review by: Jeremy Stamas (

Canon XH A1S


The XH A1S is very similar to the Canon XL H1A, its larger sister model. The differences land in the in realms of price, size, and design.

Not as good as its big sister, the Canon XL H1A, and not as strong as the competition from Sony either.

Great all round tape HD video recorder.

To many buttons in to many different places.

Canon XH A1s


Unbeatable image quality, even in low light. You could spend thousands more on professional cameras and get no better quality or flexibilty. Probably the best quality fixed lens out there!

Not lightweight or small compared to consumer camcorders.

Canon XH A1s


When I started looking into high quality video cameras, this is the one that caught my eye over 2 years ago. Now having obtained one I am delighted with the results so far. Although I have not used this camera for many hours (yet), I can honestly say...

A little on the heavy side, but not too bad

Canon XH A1s


Excellent picture quality

too many controls, and the sound is not that great, you need external mice for a better sound
