Our preferred camcorder is the Canon XH-A1. Three high-definition CCD imagers render a sharp image with accurate color while a global shutter allows this camera to perform well in situations where there is flash photography and at sporting events where there is fast motion. The XH-A1 also has a powerful zoom lens which can obtain excellent footage from a tripod set far away from the subject if necessary. We use multiple Canon HV30s as unmanned cameras. Although the HV30 is a consumer grade high-definition camcorder, it's superior picture quality in full automatic mode makes it an excellent choice for use as an unmanned camera.
