    • Canon XC15
      I agree. The build quality is fine. Is it a tank, like the C300/300 mk II? no. But it is sturdy enough and fine. I saw the Camera Store review and, IMO, they were not fair to the camera and presented one of the most biased, and worst reviews I've ever seen from them. I know the XC10 well, and the young guy who did the "review" missed one important point after another--and I'm not sure they had any intention of being fair--or spending enough time to actually learn how to best use the camera and appreciate its virtues. In response to my criticism of the review I was told they "hated" using the XC10.  The only way they could say that is to not understand how to best use it to begin with. It's amazing fun to shoot. And it's image quality, in its range, matches well with the C300 Mk II 4k---especially when you use C-log. That's pretty professional, in my view. Even Andrew mentioned how much he was impressed by the image quality. Most Camera Store reviews seem good to me insofar as I can judge, but this lame, superficial attempt to "min-review" the XC10 really disappointed me. Basically, I think they just want to sell you the Sony--with it's crappy skin tones, etc. There are more XC10 reviews than those of the Camera Store. Besides Andrew's review, I really like Carlos Quinteros, Maarten Heilbron, and Jared Polin's reviews--they are much better, more informed, more thorough, and they actually took time to learn how to use the XC10 then be fair in assessing what the XC10 has to offer.

      Those would be wonderful upgrades. But what, IMO, would complete the camera in respect to its usefulness would be two levels of ND filter.Right now I would guess the XC10 handles about 80% of outside shooting with their present single ND filter--an additional filter could bring the camera to 90% or more. It would be terrific to take the camera out on a bright day and not to have to bring along ND filters or a Variable ND that can ruin shots when the lens crosses and darkens the cam unevenly.  
    • Nikon D750 successor?
      Yet another price drop.... ! $1,599.95 now. Maybe a new permanent low is coming after all. This should significantly push down the secondhand prices as well! Would like to get a D750 myself for real estate photography.   http://nikonrumors.com/2016/08/23/new-100-price-drop-on-refurbished-nikon-d750-cameras.aspx/

      I think the big issue with the XC10 is that it looks like a small dSLR and so everyone expects it to handle the same way.  I think Andrew has nailed it -it is not a manual focus camera and the focus ring is to help direct the AF to the desired focal plane.  While the AF isn't super fast, it does act in a quite human fashion, which helps minimise the lack of speed.  I think if you work on accepting it as an AF with manual assist only then it all works a lot better.  For me the main thing I would like to see is being able to assign AE lock to a programmable button when in shutter priority mode.  Its never going to be a low light monster so I can live with the lens not being 2.8 at the long end, but is is nice being parfocal and its easy to get a nice s16 vibe going with the zoom.
    • DCI 4k 24fps Motion Cadence: I need a hero.
      I've gone to 0° shutter on a lot of my LUMIX footage.  Shot my last doc almost exclusively as such.  I do like the motion blur.
