I haven't heard any complaints. However since it does not have a firewire out, you'll likely need a capture device to stream with this camera (USB will probably not work). Here's a list of Procaster's certified capture devices:

I'll leave this thread open - hopefully someone in the Livestream community has experience with this device.

hey mercyroad,

How do you like the xa10? I am thinking about getting one... or the xf100 because it has 4:2:2 so I can do better keys...

XA10 Keying
The XA10 will do just fine keying as long as there is enough light on both subject and screen background. Extremely fast movements might cause issues. Limitations? Yes. Occasional green or blue screen will work fine for most apps. If you are going to make keying your main thing, don't use a low end camera.
The XA10 might be considered Pro, but there are better cameras for keying on a regular basis with more forgiving firmware and gear.

I am STILL debating on the xa10 and xf100

I am waiting to see if the price will drop after NAB 2013!
