g30 vs. xa10

[ Edited ]

Hi everyone! I'm trying to decide between g30 and xa10 since the prices are similar. I'm also open to other options. I'll be using the machine to shoot art films, mostly people and street/studio happenings. I'd love to hear about your experiences using those devices/ thoughts about advantages each of them give.


Also, Best Buys in Manhattan don't have xa10s on display for me to try them out. Where are good places to try the camcorders out and purchase them in NY?

The XA10 has a 10X optical zoom and XLR to phantom power capabilities. Whereas the G30 has a 20X optical zoom but lacks the XLR phantom power capabilities.
