That's a pretty cool rig! Looks like his XA10 doesn't have the jello issue either. And the Sony was the smoothest. No surprises.

gso125: Thanks for that footage link, as the XA10 doesn't seem to have the issues my HF G10 had, as mine was jumping all over the place when walking. I even tried different OIS settings.

So I would certainly characterize the OIS as 'good' at least in my XA10, but it's not quite as good as a Sony.

I would much rather take a bit of a hit in OIS for the PQ and manual controls the Canon offers. If you're a totally auto guy who doesn't like to adjust his camera, then the Sony is a nice match.

I haven't owned any 2011 Canon models, so maybe the OIS has improved. The last 2 Canon models I used were an HF S21 & HF100. Both were excellent when it came to daylight video, but I was very disappointed with the OIS & low light performance. When prices come down on the XA10 (or maybe even the HF G10), I might give Canon another try. Thanks for the info.

Try before you buy. Let them fix the OIS first. Too many are defective percentage wise in this first batch. First run, new tech, this stuff happens. The Canon is a great camera but I doubt it will ever have the best OIS out of Sony and Panasonic.

From my experience and others on this forum with the XA10, it certainly is worth a try. I am definitely finding the OIS on my XA10 to be on par with both the Panasonic 700 & 900 for zooming, panning and walking. The Sony still has an edge for walking, but frankly for just panning & zooming, I find the Canon to absolutely be on par with the Sony too. It's just for ultra smooth walking videos I give the edge to the Sony, in that respect they have no peer.

Of course with low light video there is no peer, the Canon has them all beat. For good light PQ the Canon is on par with my Panasonic 700 & 900. It's a total package that I have never seen in a small cam.

That blue dot is from the light, if you look a bit closer those lights stretch out similarly to what happens when the sun is out. I forge what it's called but all camcorders seem to do it. I've even seen it on commercial programs like the Discovery Channel. Kinda weird in this instance but I wouldn't worry about it.

Ok so from now I am going to comment on the wobbly picture in dynamic IS, (not calling it jello anymore because I think it's just an electronic artifact of the Dynamic IS) in this thread and leave the other for other cam info. It seems like there is sone concern by xf100 owners as well

Hi Dave that is why I created this thread and to be honest it's a wobble on some cameras and since it has a jello type of effect that's what I called it. My HG G10 was very wobbly and jello-like.
Remember when I first posted this no one had any idea what it was including myself. This is where the OIS posts do belong tho. They seem to keep being brought up in the main thread. I'd rather them be posted here and keep that thread for everything else.
I wonder if the other posters will do that?

My HF G10 should be coming tomorrow, hopefully, and I'm really hoping it will be 100%.

Just a quick question, does this wobble or jello effect happen on some G10 cameras, or all. Is it more common on the older G10 models?
