  • Summary: I've worked with this camera for 3 years now. It's an excellent run and gun option for fast-paced field work. The three rings for zoom, iris, and focus are crucial in my opinion, as are the built-in ND filters. The lens quality and zoom are superb. The LCD on this camera is beautiful with enough detail to easily tell if your shot is in focus. I also like the convenience of recording to CF cards which are widely available.

Professional camera

  • Summary: Coolest camera on Earth. So glad I bought it. This is a professional camera. You'll need to master Adobe Premiere Pro or something equally dense to use it.

Make A Custom Setting!

  • Excerpt: I've had the XF300 for over a year now, and I think it is a gggggreat piece of equipment......however, you have to learn how to work it....that means it isn't easy! First off, I recommend purchasing a good tutorial DVD on the XF300, that is, one that is independent of Canon itself. This will be much easier than reviewing the manual, although you should also keep such handy. Secondly, DO NOT USE the Canon presets on the XF300.
  • Pros: Great Picture Quality
  • Cons: Factory Defaults Stink, Poor Factory Defaults

Wonderful Piece of Equipment

  • Excerpt: I am using the XF300 for documentary interviews. It has a full range of features, some I have not tired. However, it is no more complicated than my old Sony Handi-Cam VX2000! The videoI have shot is stunning. Perhaps, after hours of use, I may have a suggestion, but I can offer no criticism, except it was expensive. I chose it because it meets BBC standards for broadcast.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Good in Low Light, Great Picture Quality, Great Sound, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Zoom range/performance

Amazing camera

  • Excerpt: Wow. Everything I was expecting and more. I purchased this camera to better my YouTube videos for students. I am a teacher and making videos to help my students review and to keep caught up has become an extension to my classroom. It was an out of pocket expense I was willing to make, as I see how beneficial it has become for students. I hate butying something and cutting corners only to wish later I would have spent a bit more for a better quality product.
  • Pros: Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Great Picture Quality, Great Sound, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Zoom range/performance

Satisfied, but not perfect

  • Excerpt: Overall, very satisfied with this product. I film primarily sporting events (football, ice hockey, volleyball and soccer). The HD quality in decent lighting is very crisp. The direct recording to CF cards is a big improvement.The only issue I have thus far is that its ability to take quality video in low lighting is not so good. I compared it to video shot in similar lighting on my XH-A1 and there is no improvement.
  • Pros: Good Image Stabilization, Great Picture Quality, Large Clear LCD

Happy Camper

  • Excerpt: Actually, I'm more pleased than I thought I would be. I was quite concerned that the camera would be more of a beast than I had expected for handheld work. It does fine at shorter focal lengths of course. And, the lowlight performance is better than I had expected, too. I really worked hard and researched carefully before pulling the trigger for this, and I'm glad I did!

Excelent performance for money!

  • Excerpt: I wasn't to keen on Canon as I always worked with Sony. After doing research I decided to get it and I love it! picture is excellent, and I love flexibility with all programmable buttons. some things could be made more accessible and not buried in menu but we will always find something to complain about. Overall excellent value for money especially when you consider cost of Sony cards, batteries etc...
