Canon XA50 – Best Documentary Camera for Solo Filmmakers?

My first ever camera review! Needing a good camera to film documentaries with, I rented the Canon XA50 for a week, and took it out for a few testing sessions. The most important requirement for me is to have a camera that is easy to use as a solo filmmaker. Here are my non-technical thoughts on the camera.
And here’s the actual test footage of Adams Morgan Day in DC, filmed with the Canon XA50.

Canon XA50 Best Documentary Camera for Solo Filmmakers in 2019?

Here are my thoughts on the Canon XA50 after using it this past week. (Quick summary? I’m quite smitten!) Perhaps my search for the perfect low-budget documentary camera is over?

I had to pack up the XA50 and returned it to Lensrental.com today. Parting was such sweet sorrow. I will miss you so much my new – but oh so dear – friend.

Also made a short film with the XA50 last week as I was testing it out.

There’s still one more project which I was able to squeeze in while I had the XA50. Shot it yesterday but I haven’t had a chance to edit yet. It’s coming soon though. Stay tuned guys!
