My place of employment has a new camera in the budget, and we are deciding between the above mentioned models. We are an industrial/educational video setting, very controlled studio shooting, etc. We currently shoot with an XL-1s, but are somewhat disappointed in some of the features. I'm not sure if this is even the appropriate topic area to post this, but we're looking for opinions on these two models in contrast to the XL-1s. We're keeping the Canon, but looking for something different for camera #2. Any opinions would be appreciated. Thanks.
