The Canon XF200 is a compact, high-performance Professional Camcorder designed to fulfill a broad spectrum of shooting requirements for users working on sports production, ENG, documentaries, commercials and corporate shoots, as well as for independent movie productions, government applications, film schools, colleges, weddings and other event videography.
I love this camera! Upgraded from an XHA1s (Also a great camera!) Image quality is great and its pretty easy to set up if you are used to working with this level of cameras. The only thing I wish it had was a Time/Date Stamp like the XHA1s! Yes you can screen record the time and date but if you have any other displays up they are also recorded to the screen. I record depositions for a living and this is a much needed feature! I can set the display to only show the time and date, but if I adjust aperture or white balance the displays for these settings pops up and also records to the screen. A simple Time/Date Stamp is all I ask Canon! Please add in the next firmware upgrade!
