Canon XA10 Pro Camcorder Reviewed

 

In the pro world of videography it's hard to take anything this small too seriously. However, the XA10 is larger than life in terms of features, usability, and quality imaging.

Detachable handle, XLR audio inputs and mic mount, Small form makes it extremely portable

Lightweight body lends to increased camera shake

Decent Amateur Camera

 

I think that this camera has great video quality and some really nice options. But it is poorly designed. The shoe mount for the audio xlr ports is shaky and the audio cuts occasionally. It is difficult to navigate the settings but you can learn how to...

GREAT camera

 

I debated for a long time between going with the XA10 or a DSLR for narrative short films. After over a year of using the XA10 I can report it was definitely the right choice. Full manual control, real lens wheel and pro sounding XLR audio ins. And the...

Best Camera Ever For Almost Everything

 

As a primary provider for live streaming, I can never use this camera for those events, nor for live capturing to ANY capture software in HD without an expensive interface device of some sort.That being said, on any shoot, pro or pedestrian, if you...

Good for the price range

 

Set this up in a Pod Cast studio. It is good for that, but not so easy to navigate the menus. Especially if you like to shoot in manual. Below I put I would not recommend to a friend because I don't want someone needing pro features thinking this a...

Nice step up

 

Upgraded from a Canon HF m41 camcorder, which I thought did a nice job for work videos. Then I shot some video (fairly low light too) at the XA10's highest quality and was really amazed at how crisp and clear it was. One nice feature I like the ability...

Perfect for Elementary Students

 

We recently started up a Broadcasting Program at our elementary school. The students learn how to operate digital cameras (DSLR and video cameras). This particular product is professional, yet manageable for my elementary 5th and 6th graders to use...
