Filmmaker Christopher Ward writes up his experiences shooting a short film with the Canon XA25.

He writes, "One might have a hard time buying the word 'professional' when associated with a small camcorder that has a fixed lens and that uses a LCD touch screen with a menu based system for most manual functions.  Well, the XA25, which lists for $2,999.00, might be considered a lightweight when compared to a more expensive HD camera; however, there is nothing inferior about the image this mighty mouse can produce.  The XA25 can capture truly stunning professional quality images at 24p, 30p or 60i (our choice).  Indeed, I’d say this camera shoots video that is better than or at least equal to test footage I’ve seen from other cameras at this same level."
