    XH A1 replacement?
    #1

    Hi all!

    I've decided to sell my Canon XH A1, and buy a replacement, that shoots FullHD(1920x1080) to memorycards like an SD or CF card. The question is, what do I buy?

    I'd like to have the same features and connections, as my XH A1, but I'd also prefer a shouldermounted camera with (at least) a decent viewfinder. I've been looking at the Panasonic HDC MDH1 and the Panasonic AG-HMC 82, where the last one is much more expensive than the first one. Which of these would you choose? Would you choose something complete different from this? It shouldn't be anymore than £2000.

    EDIT: I have also considered saving a little more up, and getting a C100. Maybe I can find one used at a good price?

    The Panasonic AC130A or 160A are very similar to the XH A1 in features and design shooting to SD cards. Not traditional shoulder mount, but they have excellent IQ. If you get the C100, don't forget you'd need to add lenses to that cost as well.

    How does the XF100 compare to these cameras?

    Great codec and 4:2:2, but...you'll lose zoom, the low light won't be as good, and some of the physical controls are not there since it's a smaller cam. The XF300 is the true replacement to the xha1.

    Okay, thank you. I think I'm on a C100. I'll just have to save up a little more then
