As the cost of quality television equipment drops and the quality increases, more people can afford great gear. Add to that the huge and growing number of outlets for finished video programs, and you have more shooters and editors than ever—each with his or her unique idea about optimum workflow. It has a camera body with a sturdy handle on top, out of which branch a shotgun mic and an eyepiece viewfinder. At the front of the camera is a removable Canon 14x lens, typical of a higher-end ENG camcorder. It looks and feels like a traditional ENG camera, right down to the location of controls. I loaded two SD memory cards the 16 GB and 32 GB cards mentioned above into the unit and used it on a variety of shoots in varying lighting conditions.

In the Box Canon KT14x4. Reviews Reviewed by 4 Customers. Write a review. Awesome camera for motorsports. By rce1 from east coast, USA on I shoot alot of auto racing so I am in the pits alot.
I previously had a Sony FX1 and this camera was a major jump and I love the form factor. With that said I agree with some of the others who say the picture quality is average. Someone mentioned they changed all the settings, does anyone have those changes? The Canon lense is awesome. I did use a friends with the Fujinon 17x lense and there is a noticeable difference in picture quality.
Great camera for the price. By Mondo from Sydney, Australia on I regularly shoot in studio situations with the A1 and the and the A1 always looks soft by comparison. If you want something that performs better in low light get the EX1R or the EX3 both more expensive than this cam and put up with CMOS issues like rolling shutter and infra red contamination - Sony largely solved the IR contamination on the EX1R but you still get rolling shutter in action situations.
In the field the HM is a pretty rugged camera, which is important if you are an action shoooter and in good light this camera sings. MOV work on Final Cut. Best uses: Corporate and tourist based field work. If you look after your gear with a decent camera skin. Pros: Proven ergonomics, excellent workflow, shoots to Class 6 SD cards reasonably cheap , good glass options, really nice LCD monitor. By truestory from Australia on However the Hm is tragic in any low light scenario, and has a very average picture..
The Canon A1 I have is over 3 years old and still performs as good The only thing going for the is the wow factor, when you pull it out of the case in corporate situations SDHC cards are the way to go, this workflow is amazing..
Don't get me wromg, it is a great camera all round with great controls and features but even being a 1'3" chip, it falls short in many critical areas Would I buy another one NO I would not Awesome camera!!!
