    I'd like to get rid of my Sony CX-760V and get a similarly small camera like the Canon XA20, which has a longer zoom and better manual control. Does anybody have any experience with it? I've seen a couple of videos demonstrating Canon's answer to Sony's BOSS system, and it looks pretty good. And the XA20 offers dual SD card recording, and 1080P 60fps recording. So on paper it looks like a good alternative.

    Anybody have any experience with it? Thanks!

    Here's a video showing how their stabilizer works. Again, not as good as the BOSS, but still quite good.

    Thats funny i was about that camera a couple of weeks back and I am sure the main response was its bigger than the 760 so not as useable.
