16 Reasons For for Choosing the Canon XA10

Bigger Optical Zoom

The Canon XA10 is a 10 optical zoom camcorder. That's 9x bigger than the Bushnell 8MP Trophy Cam, the Midland XTC100, the Panasonic HXA100 and the Sony MHSPM5 (1x). More ...

An optical zoom lets you enlarge the subject without having to move closer to it.

An optical zoom lets you zoom without loosing image quality. Digital zooms will simply enlarge the pixels and make the image look blurry.

Higher Maximum Video Resolution

The Canon XA10 has a max video resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels, and so are the Panasonic HXA100 and the Sony MHSPM5, which is twice as high maximum video resolution as the Bushnell 8MP Trophy Cam (1280 x 720 (HD Ready) pixels) and 7 times higher maximum video resolution as the Midland XTC100 (640 x 480 pixels). More ...

Video resolution is the amount of pixels that make up each frame of the recorded video.

A higher video resolution means that each frame will be more detailed and sharper, with less blurring or smudging. This leads to a far higher quality video.

Image Stabilizer

The Canon XA10 has an image stabilizer (as do the Midland XTC100, the Panasonic HXA100 and the Sony MHSPM5), whereas the Bushnell 8MP Trophy Cam does not have this feature. More ...

'Image Stabilizer' denotes whether the camcorder has an Image stabiliser system - a function that smooths out the movement of the camera.

Image stabilization allows for far smoother videos, and lessens the amount of jerky movement that comes with handheld recording.

Lower Minimum Aperture Number

The Canon XA10 is a 1.8 minimum aperture camcorder. That's 0.7 lower than the Panasonic HXA100 (2.5). More ...

In photography, the aperture number refers to the size of the hole in the front of the lens, through which light is let through. The larger the aperture, the more light can pass through into the camcorder's sensor. Photographers can modify this aperture to control the 'depth of field' for their shot - this is how much of the shot is held in focus, and how much is blurred. Aperture numbers are measured in f/stops: rather confusingly a smaller aperture number translates to a larger hole, therefore a larger amount of light will be let through.

A smaller aperture number means that the camcorder's lens will be able to open wider, letting in more light at once. This is helpful because it allows the device to quickly take in enough light to form a picture, meaning that the shutter speed will be faster, reducing blur from fast moving subjects. It also means that you can take photos in dimmer light without having to rely on the flash, since you will be able to take in more light at once.

Higher Maximum Aperture Number

The Canon XA10 is a 2.8 maximum aperture value camcorder. That's 0.3 higher than the Panasonic HXA100 (2.5). More ...

In photography, the aperture number refers to the size of the hole in the front of the lens, through which light is let through. The larger the aperture, the more light can pass through into the camcorder's sensor. Photographers can modify this aperture to control the 'depth of field' for their shot - this is how much of the shot is held in focus, and how much is blurred. Aperture numbers are measured in f/stops: rather confusingly a larger aperture number translates to a smaller hole, therefore a smaller amount of light will be let through.

A larger aperture number means that the camcorder's lens will be able to close to a very small hole, letting in very little light. This can be used for very tight depths of field shots, allowing on a single part of the photo to be in full focus, leading to some very nice artistic shots.

Full HD

The Canon XA10 is a Full HD camcorder (as are the Bushnell 8MP Trophy Cam, the Panasonic HXA100 and the Sony MHSPM5), whereas the Midland XTC100 is not. More ...

A full HD camcorder captures video with a minimum resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels.

Full HD camcorders capture more pixels which make the recording appear sharper compared to camcorders with a lower resolution.

A Lot Faster Maximum Frame Rate

The Canon XA10 has a maximum frame rate of 60 (as does the Sony MHSPM5), however the Midland XTC100 is only a 30fps camcorder (30fps slower) and the Panasonic HXA100 is only a 50fps camcorder (10fps slower). More ...

'Maximum Frame Rate' denotes how many frames per second (fps) are captured and displayed when recording video.

A higher fps means that the camcorder is recording far more frames for every second of footage, leading to a far smoother and more fluid video - the action will be less jerky and look of a higher quality.

Significantly Smaller Closest Focusing Distance

The Canon XA10 has a closest focusing distance of 0.02, whereas the Panasonic HXA100 is a 0.3m closest focusing distance camcorder (0.28m bigger). More ...

'Closest Focusing Distance' indicates the closest distance that the camcorder can be from the subject to achieve a perfect focus. Any closer than this and the subject will be blurry.

A smaller focusing distance means that you can get closer to subjects while filming and still keep in full focus.

Face Detection

The Canon XA10 has a face detection (as does the Sony MHSPM5), but the Bushnell 8MP Trophy Cam, the Midland XTC100 and the Panasonic HXA100 do not have this feature. More ...

'Face Detection' indicates whether the camcorder has the ability to detect faces while recording, allowing it to automatically make sure they remain in full focus.

Face detection makes it far easier to make sure that people always appear in full focus, meaning no messed up videos due to bad focus.

Larger Display Diagonal

Canon XA10 is 3.5 screen size. That's 1.1" larger than the Bushnell 8MP Trophy Cam and the Sony MHSPM5 (2.4"). More ...

Display diagonal of the camcorder's build in display.

A larger display diagonal makes it easier to record and review video and images.

HDMI

The Canon XA10 supports HDMI, but the Bushnell 8MP Trophy Cam, the Midland XTC100, the Panasonic HXA100 and the Sony MHSPM5 do not support this feature. More ...

'HDMI' denotes whether the camcorder has an HDMI connection, allowing it to connect directly to TVs and monitors.

An HDMI connection allows you to display the videos you take in high definition on your TV or computer monitor, making it easy to stage screenings for family and friends!

Two More Awards

The Canon XA10 has received 2 awards from expert review sites, however the Bushnell 8MP Trophy Cam has received no awards, the Midland XTC100 has received no awards, the Panasonic HXA100 has received no awards and the Sony MHSPM5 has received no awards.

Hugely Better Expert Reviews

Based on 11 reviews, the Canon XA10 has an average expert review score of 93%, but the Panasonic HXA100 has an average rating of 70% (based on 1 review).

Much Better User Reviews

Based on 5 reviews, the Canon XA10 has an average user review score of 96%, but the Bushnell 8MP Trophy Cam has an average rating of 82% (based on 136 reviews) and the Panasonic HXA100 has an average rating of 76% (based on 5 reviews).

Better Brand

Canon camcorders have an average rating of 95%, however Bushnell only has an average rating of 70.8%, Midland only has an average rating of 61.3%, Panasonic only has an average rating of 90.5% and Sony only has an average rating of 93.7%.

Better Parentesis.com Review Score

The Canon XA10 has a Parentesis.com review score of 90%, however the rating of the Panasonic HXA100 was only 70% from the same site.

11 Reasons Against for Choosing the Canon XA10

770g Heavier

The Canon XA10 has a weight of 820, but the Bushnell 8MP Trophy Cam is a 50g camcorder (770g lighter), the Midland XTC100 is a 93g camcorder (727g lighter), the Panasonic HXA100 is a 167g camcorder (653g lighter) and the Sony MHSPM5 is a 130g camcorder (690g lighter). More ...

'Weight' denotes the weight of the camcorder, including battery.

A lighter camcorder is easier to handle when recording and to carry when travelling.

71% Smaller Total Megapixels

The Canon XA10 is a 2.37 camcorder. That's 5.63MP smaller than the Bushnell 8MP Trophy Cam (8MP), 2.63MP smaller than the Midland XTC100 and the Sony MHSPM5 (5MP) and 0.95MP smaller than the Panasonic HXA100 (3.32MP). More ...

A megapixel (MP or Mpx) is one million pixels, and is a term used not only for the number of pixels in an image, but also to express the number of image sensor elements of digital cameras or the number of display elements of digital displays. For example, a camera that makes a 2048 1536 pixel image typically uses a few extra rows and columns of sensor elements and is commonly said to have "3.2 megapixels" or "3.4 megapixels", depending on whether the number reported is the "effective" or the "total" pixel count (as opposed to the 2048 1536 = 3,145,728 finished image pixels).

A larger number of megapixels increases the sharpness of images and video.

A Lot Smaller Digital Zoom

The Canon XA10 is a 2 (digital) camcorder, whereas the Sony MHSPM5 is a 4x (digital) camcorder (2x bigger). More ...

A digital zoom enlarges the pixels in a digital image to make the subject appear closer. Using digital zoom can result in images becoming blurry as the underlying image remains the same.

A digital zoom allows you to enlarge a subject without having to move closer. Digital zoom can be used as an alternative to an optical zoom, although it will result in a loss of image quality.

A Lot Lower Effective Megapixels (Image)

The Canon XA10 has an effective megapixels (image) of 2.07, but the Panasonic HXA100 is a 2.8MP camcorder (0.73MP higher). More ...

The resolution of the images a camcorder produces is measured in megapixels (MP). One megapixel is equal to 1 million pixels and is a result of the pixel width multiplied by the pixel height of the image. While a higher image resolution generally results in sharper images, only a relatively low megapixel count is required when printing the image at a small size or to display it on a computer screen.

A sensor with more megapixels will be able to capture more detailed photos and the image will appear sharper. Images with more megapixels can also be printed at a larger size.

27% Lower Effective Megapixels (Movie)

The Canon XA10 has an effective megapixels (movie) of 2.07. That's 0.73MP lower than the Panasonic HXA100 (2.8MP). More ...

The resolution of the videos a camcorder produces is measured in megapixels (MP). One megapixel is equal to 1 million pixels and is a result of the pixel width multiplied by the pixel height of the image.

A sensor with more megapixels will be able to capture more detailed frames and the videos will appear sharper.

Does Not Have a Built-in Flash

The Canon XA10 does not have a built-in flash (As do the the Bushnell 8MP Trophy Cam and the Midland XTC100), whereas the Panasonic HXA100 and the Sony MHSPM5 do. More ...

'Built-in Flash' denotes whether the camcorder has a flash unit built into it, or whether you have to rely on natural lighting or external flash units.

Does Not Have a Built-in Microphone

The Canon XA10 does not have a built-in microphone, however the Bushnell 8MP Trophy Cam, the Midland XTC100, the Panasonic HXA100 and the Sony MHSPM5 have this feature. More ...

'Built-In Microphone' denotes whether the camcorder has a microphone built into the body of the device, in order to record audio along with the video.

A built-in microphone isn't going to be as high quality as a professional mic, but it's a good alternative if you want to record audio alongside your home videos.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Canon XA10 has received a Kagoo Score of 77, but the Bushnell 8MP Trophy Cam scored 78 and the Sony MHSPM5 scored 79.

More Expensive by £931

The Canon XA10 is £845 more expensive than the Bushnell 8MP Trophy Cam, £924 more expensive than the Midland XTC100, £705 more expensive than the Panasonic HXA100 and £931 more expensive than the Sony MHSPM5.

Not As Many Stockists

The Canon XA10 is only stocked by 1 retailer, however the Midland XTC100 is stocked by 3 retailers. More ...

Fewer numbers of sellers reduces the chances of the product remaining in stock and also reduces the price competition amongst retailers for this camcorder.
Older by 11 Months

The Canon XA10 is nine months older than the Bushnell 8MP Trophy Cam, three months older than the Midland XTC100 and 11 months older than the Panasonic HXA100.

The cheapest price that we could find for the XA10 in the UK is £953.99 but in total we found only 1 price for it.

10 Reasons For for Choosing the Sony MHSPM5

1920 X 1080 (Full HD) Pixels Pixels Resolution

The Sony MHSPM5 has a max video resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels (as are the Canon XA10 and the Panasonic HXA100), however the Bushnell 8MP Trophy Cam only has a max video resolution of 1280 x 720 (HD Ready) pixels and the Midland XTC100 only has a max video resolution of 640 x 480 pixels. More ...

Video resolution is the amount of pixels that make up each frame of the recorded video.

A higher video resolution means that each frame will be more detailed and sharper, with less blurring or smudging. This leads to a far higher quality video.

34% Bigger Digital Zoom

The Sony MHSPM5 has a digital zoom of 4. That's 2x bigger than the Canon XA10 (2x). More ...

A digital zoom enlarges the pixels in a digital image to make the subject appear closer. Using digital zoom can result in images becoming blurry as the underlying image remains the same.

A digital zoom allows you to enlarge a subject without having to move closer. Digital zoom can be used as an alternative to an optical zoom, although it will result in a loss of image quality.

Image Stabilizer

The Sony MHSPM5 has an image stabilizer, and so do the Canon XA10, the Midland XTC100 and the Panasonic HXA100, however the Bushnell 8MP Trophy Cam does not. More ...

Face detection makes it far easier to make sure that people always appear in full focus, meaning no messed up videos due to bad focus.

Higher Still Image Resolution

The Sony MHSPM5 supports a still image resolution of 2048 x 1536, whereas the Panasonic HXA100 supports a still image resolution of 2304 x 1296. We do not know what type of still image resolution the Bushnell 8MP Trophy Cam, the Canon XA10 and the Midland XTC100 support. More ...

A megapixel (MP or Mpx) is one million pixels, and is a term used not only for the number of pixels in an image, but also to express the number of image sensor elements of digital cameras or the number of display elements of digital displays. For example, a camera that makes a 2048 1536 pixel image typically uses a few extra rows and columns of sensor elements and is commonly said to have "3.2 megapixels" or "3.4 megapixels", depending on whether the number reported is the "effective" or the "total" pixel count (as opposed to the 2048 1536 = 3,145,728 finished image pixels).

The Panasonic HXA100 is a 167 camcorder. That's 117g heavier than the Bushnell 8MP Trophy Cam (50g), 653g lighter than the Canon XA10 (820g), 74g heavier than the Midland XTC100 (93g) and 37g heavier than the Sony MHSPM5 (130g). More ...

'Weight' denotes the weight of the camcorder, including battery.

A lighter camcorder is easier to handle when recording and to carry when travelling.

Hugely Smaller Total Megapixels

The Panasonic HXA100 has a total megapixels of 3.32, but the Bushnell 8MP Trophy Cam is an 8MP camcorder (4.68MP bigger), the Canon XA10 is a 2.37MP camcorder (0.95MP smaller) and the Midland XTC100 and the Sony MHSPM5 are both 5MP camcorders (1.68MP bigger). More ...

A megapixel (MP or Mpx) is one million pixels, and is a term used not only for the number of pixels in an image, but also to express the number of image sensor elements of digital cameras or the number of display elements of digital displays. For example, a camera that makes a 2048 1536 pixel image typically uses a few extra rows and columns of sensor elements and is commonly said to have "3.2 megapixels" or "3.4 megapixels", depending on whether the number reported is the "effective" or the "total" pixel count (as opposed to the 2048 1536 = 3,145,728 finished image pixels).

A larger number of megapixels increases the sharpness of images and video.

22% Higher Minimum Aperture Number

The Panasonic HXA100 has a minimum aperture number of 2.5, however the Canon XA10 is a 1.8 minimum aperture camcorder (0.7 lower). More ...

In photography, the aperture number refers to the size of the hole in the front of the lens, through which light is let through. The larger the aperture, the more light can pass through into the camcorder's sensor. Photographers can modify this aperture to control the 'depth of field' for their shot - this is how much of the shot is held in focus, and how much is blurred. Aperture numbers are measured in f/stops: rather confusingly a smaller aperture number translates to a larger hole, therefore a larger amount of light will be let through.

A smaller aperture number means that the camcorder's lens will be able to open wider, letting in more light at once. This is helpful because it allows the device to quickly take in enough light to form a picture, meaning that the shutter speed will be faster, reducing blur from fast moving subjects. It also means that you can take photos in dimmer light without having to rely on the flash, since you will be able to take in more light at once.

11% Lower Maximum Aperture Number

The Panasonic HXA100 has a maximum aperture number of 2.5, however the Canon XA10 is a 2.8 maximum aperture value camcorder (0.3 higher). More ...

In photography, the aperture number refers to the size of the hole in the front of the lens, through which light is let through. The larger the aperture, the more light can pass through into the camcorder's sensor. Photographers can modify this aperture to control the 'depth of field' for their shot - this is how much of the shot is held in focus, and how much is blurred. Aperture numbers are measured in f/stops: rather confusingly a larger aperture number translates to a smaller hole, therefore a smaller amount of light will be let through.

A larger aperture number means that the camcorder's lens will be able to close to a very small hole, letting in very little light. This can be used for very tight depths of field shots, allowing on a single part of the photo to be in full focus, leading to some very nice artistic shots.

Slower Maximum Frame Rate

The Panasonic HXA100 is a 50 camcorder. That's 10fps slower than the Canon XA10 and the Sony MHSPM5 (60fps) and 20fps faster than the Midland XTC100 (30fps). More ...

'Maximum Frame Rate' denotes how many frames per second (fps) are captured and displayed when recording video.

A higher fps means that the camcorder is recording far more frames for every second of footage, leading to a far smoother and more fluid video - the action will be less jerky and look of a higher quality.

Bigger Closest Focusing Distance

The Panasonic HXA100 is a 0.3 closest focusing distance camcorder. That's 0.28m bigger than the Canon XA10 (0.02m). More ...

'Closest Focusing Distance' indicates the closest distance that the camcorder can be from the subject to achieve a perfect focus. Any closer than this and the subject will be blurry.

A smaller focusing distance means that you can get closer to subjects while filming and still keep in full focus.

Does Not Have a Built-in Display

The Panasonic HXA100 does not have a built-in display, whereas the Bushnell 8MP Trophy Cam, the Canon XA10, the Midland XTC100 and the Sony MHSPM5 have this feature. More ...

'Built-In Display' indicates whether the camcorder has a display built into the body of the device or not.

A built-in display is very helpful for checking the framing of the shot, or for quickly replaying your video to check everything recorded fine.

Lower Still Image Resolution

The Panasonic HXA100 supports a still image resolution of 2304 x 1296, whereas the Sony MHSPM5 supports a still image resolution of 2048 x 1536. We do not know what type of still image resolution the Bushnell 8MP Trophy Cam, the Canon XA10 and the Midland XTC100 support. More ...

Image resolution is a measurement of how many pixels make up a single image taken with the camcorder.

A higher image resolution means that the photos taken with the camcorder will be more detailed and sharper, and you'll be able to pick out smaller detailed far better. They will also far more suited to being enlarged, and can be blown up to larger sizes without blurring or losing detail.

Does Not Support HDMI

The Panasonic HXA100 does not support HDMI (As do the the Bushnell 8MP Trophy Cam and the Midland XTC100), however the Canon XA10 and the Sony MHSPM5 support this feature. More ...

'HDMI' denotes whether the camcorder has an HDMI connection, allowing it to connect directly to TVs and monitors.

An HDMI connection allows you to display the videos you take in high definition on your TV or computer monitor, making it easy to stage screenings for family and friends!
