Comments:

The canon xa10 is was a great surprise right out of the box. We put the battery on and "blam!" it fired right up and we started shooting. The audio is obviously limited but with external mic ports (xlr) and shotgun holster, sound is easy to get up to snuff. There are manual adjustments for pretty much everything for the pro-sumer. Looks great all around.

Comments:

After sitting down and going through the easy to understand manual, I was able to customize my settings for different shooting situations. Even if you do not think you will need the handle, leave it on because it is easier to operate the zoom control and start recording without the camera shaking. The camera seems to be a top quality instrument. The 3.5mm mic works very well for the everyday filming. The XML mic's are costly. I found it easier to transfer the raw filming to the SD card (Slot B) and then import the data to the editing software. This way you do not have to power the camera for the transfer.
