Canon XA50, 4K test footage vs Canon XA40, 4K test footage

For my needs (indie fiction features) the Canon XA50 works better (1" sensor).  But, for other people, the less expensive Canon XA40 might work better - it's smaller, lighter, and has a smaller sensor. Both can shoot 4K, have XLR handles. Research the specs, try out the cams to see which one is better for you.  Here is some test footage from both cameras - no audio. Note - more post work was done on the XA50 footage - for a more cinematic look - some color grade work was done. Canon XA50 quick cinematic look test, mostly Brooklyn night, unedited (not trimmed) footage, some color work done, no sound, 4K from Sujewa Ekanayake on Vimeo . * Canon XA40 test footage 4K, no audio from Sujewa Ekanayake on Vimeo .

The movie is well made, and funny from the start to end. Tukel is known for making dark, sarcastic movies - this one is not really one of those movies. It starts out as something that is similar to perhaps Curb Your Enthusiasm. Then it goes into the world of making music videos for a musician who is trying to make a comeback with a new album. The stresses of both trying to "make it" in NYC in film and in music is reflected in the movie. Great cinematography - several different styles are used. Great ending.
