Just be aware that if you are upgrading, as I just did, to the Canon HX A1s it has no scene transtions such as a simplefade. I guess Canon feels thateverything shot will be edited in post. I do a lot of “in camera” editing and that is difficult to do without the transitions. Alsothe AV outs don’t work with any of the equipment, I guess the HX A1s is just too advanced for me. It is a very solid well built camera and I am sure a wonderful camera for thevery advancedvideographer.
