Luigi ApreaWedding: Sony Nex-VG20 or Canon XA10?
by on Mar 7, 2012 at 8:58:53 am

Hi there! I've been working as videographer and editor for five years, and have used several devices from miniDV cameras to GH2. Now I'd like to buy a better videocamera for weddings and events, my budget is about €2,000.00 and I'm undecided between Sony Nex-VG20 and Canon XA10.

I guess the Canon XA10 would be better for my workflow, because of:

- Iris f/1.8 (great to blur effects and low light);
- Double slot for SDXC + internal memory of 64Gb;
- Optical image stabilizer (in the camera and not in the lens as the VG20);
- 2 XLR inputs
- Zoom key

I'm also undecided about the white balance of these cameras and their sensor. Do you think it's better the APS-C sized chip inside the VG20 or the HD CMOS Pro of the Canon XA10 (the same of the XF100 model)? May you suggest me?

Thanks a lot!
Luigi

Dear Luigi,

I am afraid I can't help you, because...I have almost the same questions!

Did you already get a response?

Can't see any posts.

Hi Menno,

At last I've chosen the VG20 and bought it on-line. Still waiting for the delivery, I'll let you know :)
