XH-A1s Quick Review

Posted on 6/7/2009 2:46:00 AM

I just used my new Canon XH-A1s all day today at a wedding. I love everybit of it.

One of the biggest annoying things of the XH-A1 is, it focus very slowly in 30F and 24F mode. I found the focus engine works a lot faster now. The ease-in and ease-out zooming machanism also help in my opinion.
Another annoying problem for XH-A1 is, when I pan and zoom out at the same time, in certain range, the screen starting to scroll (it's hard to describe). It shows on LCD screen also be recorded to tape. I don't see it today at all.
What I don't like, the zoom ring, focus ring and iris ring are very heavy. I like it the old way before.
AGC limiter rocks. I can now limit AGC to 3db max. It works very well in dim room.
There're other physical changes. Those to me are really minor. All the things that were not doing right in XH-A1 is fixed in XH-A1s. It is also definitely can be fixed by a firmware update.
