Ok, so the college I got accepted to for digital video production reccomends I get 1 of 3 cameras, Canon HFS30, Canon XA10 and a Canon HFM41. Both Vixia models are out of the equation because I wan to invest into a camera I can use in the real world that doesn't look consumer-ish. Although the options for the XA10 are quite good, with dual XLR outputs and dual memory card slots, it does also play around with the consumer side of things with it's touch screen & Internal Hard Drive. I would also be using this camera to film skateboarding as a replacement for my DVX. Basically I want the average SP'ers advice/opinion. The other option is the HMC150 which i've been looking into and seems like a good upgrade and something that will fulfill the needs of my college course.

Price point isn't a huge deal as I have money saved for college and extra expenses. So the money aspect isn't a huge deal. This doesn't mean that I want to upgrade to a HVX/HPX. I find the P2 card system very bulky & overly expensive.

Please give me some feedback!!

Get the HMC150-- the internal harddrive on the XA10 is really sketch for skateboarding, especially if you're shooting fisheye.

Is that the only pro for the hmc? i'd mainly be using my VX1 for filming fish, HMC would be LL.

I have thought about DSLR, and although the school could supply me with lens to use. I don't think I want to travel down the dslr route right now. I'd rather have a sturdy camera I can zoom with primarily, without the need of a follow focus system. Also, i'm just not a big fan of DSLRs.

Canon XA10. I was supposed to get this cam but since i didn't have enough money i bought an HV40 and it's awesome too.

The XA10 is definitely much more reliable than the HMC by the way and it's kinda smaller so you can put it in a bag easily and go outside with it. + the low light performance is really impressive!

Like, nobody knows what Google is for besides porn anymore.

Totally unnecessary.
It's like a woman having a car, there's nowhere to drive in the kitchen.

The only thing I don't like is how consumerish it is. I don't want to be in the real world with something that looks mediocre. That's why I was looking at the hmc, plus they both use SD cards.

I would definitely get the HMC! If you are looking for a more professional looking camcorder, then it is pretty obvious it is your best choice out of the camcorders you have mentioned. Especially if price is not an issue, I would definitely go for it! Plus, for skateboarding, it will be at least simialr to what you are used to with your dvx.

Your dad was in the army after he left the klan, wasn't he ?

We also had the phantom pooper. He or she was never identified, but whoever it was would write cryptic messages on the bathroom walls in their own shit. Awesome.
