I finally got my XA-10 in the mail today and couldn't wait to run off some test shots around Sherman Oaks/Van Nuys. The shots are mainly uneffected except I hastily stopped the aperture down in some of the darker looking shots. I will try and post some day shots later.
So far I am very impressed with this camera. It is tiny and powerful.
I still need to better understand the AVCHD workflow through final cut. I find that properly exporting the quicktimes to be troublesome.
