I really am pleased with my new XF305 camcorder. I bought the SanDisk 32 Extreme Pro UDMA7 CF card. You have to use the UDMA CF cards for this camera. SO, check with Canon on the CF cards that will work with your camcorder -- they all differ.The picture and all camcorder tools work fine.

I have used this camera for 4 years. I am a pro shooter since the days of the RCA TK Big Blue. Working for myself after 25 years with a large production company I needed a broadcast quality camera that was reasonably priced. This camera is great. I shoot spots, shows. interviews, sports.

This canon is a solid pro camera, but it is lacking in some much needed features at its core. It should have a larger sensor to deal with lo light. The Sony's by comparison have larger sensors, and thus are better suited for lower light.

The add on you guys gave with the camera was jus useless.

This camera is big and bulky to the point of being unwieldy. The lens is huge and all of that glass weighs a TON! This gives it a high center of gravity on a tripod.

This camera has been a great camera for us. Great in low light and does very good from the top of a pressbox. Small enough for weddings and decent for run and gun.

It's an excellent camera for the price. And it's great for run and gun, ENG and maybe corporate video. The real problem for em is that the recorded image seems very compressed and the two times I've had to edit and, color correct, and grade video shot on this camera it's been difficult.

I've used two of these cameras for over three years, for broadcast and educational documentary work. I love the small form factor, and the Canon L glass can't be matched at this scale.

I've been shooting in-house corporate video for 20 years. I was given a budget that could afford a digitial cinema grade system. However, a majority of my target audience is online/web and a few 720p programs embedded in power-point.

Really great camera and pretty good in low light even at 18X gain. Sound recording from the camera is amazing.
