I'm a film artist and i've read all the other xa30 reviews up until 6/8/16 and this is what i feel is positive/negative about the xa30.
First off i own the xa10 and love it! So this is a big upgrade over the xa10.
For me the 20x zoom is big! I wanted to see if my cannon 1.5x teleconverter would work on top of the 20x telephoto and it does! I did'nt notice a Significant drop in quality at least for things within 100 yards.
The internal sound is much better than the xa10 not the the xa10 was bad.
Video quality was stunning! And capturing in low Light is unbelievable! I really could'nt believe how well i could see at about 9:15 at night in early june.
This just feels like a super solid camera if your not going to spend like a ka-jllion dollars .
I didn't like the lack of the internal 64 gigs or the The way the xlr cables unlock from the camera handle.
I haven't used every camera out there but...
I'll have to update this review once I have some time using my new XA30, but my first impressions are: "Wow, where have you been?" This thing is TINY for what it does - almost shockingly so - but it's loaded with capability. I'm glad I sprung for this newer model, rather than settle for an XA10. I especially am happy about the dual card, dual format recording, so I can dump a 360p or 480p at the same time as full 1080p, to facilitate web uploads without transcoding, while still having full HD for editing. I'm also very happy about the XLR audio inputs. I also picked this model because it will support the external zoom and recording control handle I have mounted on the arm of my Manfrotto fluid head.
I would be a little happier if there were some unified way to get all the inputs and outputs without it looking like a pincushion (two XLR, HDMI video out, earphones out, power in). All those come from unique locations on the camera body. Oh, well. At least with it...
Fantastic camcorder. I have been using it a lot and it is everything you need and more. You can strip it down to fit in your hand or rig it up with handle and external MIC and get amazing quality video and sound. I did a wedding for a friend and it handled all the complicated lighting really well in automatic mode. You can use it as point and shoot or customize your settings and get beautiful results.
