Several months ago I got a Canon XF 100 camcorder to replace my trustworthy Sony HDR-XF1. The smaller size and reduced weight were important arguments - high resolution sensor and tapeless recording finally convinced me.
The XF100 served me well during a four week tour through the west of the U.S. and on other occasions. So this may be a good time to write down what I liked and what I didn't like so much of Canon's new baby.
The image on the left shows the XF 100 in front of it's older "brother", the Canon XM2 (aka GL2).
