Superb image quality, 20x optical zoom, affordable for a professional unit

No zooming ring, inbuilt microphone below average, standard-def only

XM2

 

The XM2 also has strong competition from Sony's PDX10, which has the added benefit of true widescreen capture. The PDX10 costs over £500 more than the XM2, but includes an XLR input in that price that will set you back an extra £145 on the XM2
