Pros + Codec with 4:2:2 50 Mbps
Cons - No ND filter
Conclusion 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.
