Pros + wide angle
+ Professional manual functions and connectors
+ Very sharp image
+ Codec with 4:2:2 50 Mbps
Cons - No ND filter
- Viewfinder
- No ND filter
Conclusion Except for the lack of ND filters or low-res viewfinder on this camera we can really complain little.With the result that they can compete despite a retail price of about 2,000 euros with the very large.Definitely just THE best buy if you do not like big sensor Aestetik.The XF100/105 is a compact workhorse that plays off its strength especially in the documentation and news area (less in a scenic environment).Here the camera concept feels quite well thought-through.The lack of a ND filter and the 1/3" chip are our main points of criticism, aside from slight difficulties in the handling, though these of course are partly due to the compact form.
