Canon XH G1

 

Canon's new XH G1 gives production houses and TV studios a new HD shooting option with plenty of features and impressive output.

Outlook Though an impressive HD camera, its price (AU$11,499) and weight (2.33kg) means that this is not a camera for the average consumer, however its intended audience (production houses and TV studios that require live-switching) should be well served.
