"The XL-1 had the better image
." - writes Michael Pappas on rec.video.production newsgroup.  "I had filmed with the VX1000 for almost two years.  After that long you get a good idea what the picture looks like in your head.  When I filmed with the XL-1 it was apparent even in the viewfinder that the image was better.  But after we viewed the DV material played back on a DSR-30 to a Sony broadcast monitor it was clear the XL-1 had the better image."
