Joe,

You're kinda asking a non specific question. Truth be told the best thing for giving you a film look with your setup would be to light it well. Traditionally a 180 degree shutter would translate to a shutter speed of 1/48 (on 24f mode) I would suggest setting white balance to where ever you happen to be on set, so that it's uniform and if you decide you want to change it later it's rather simple to do in post.

I am curious as to how the 300 series looks on the xl-h1 because I've heard it's not designed for it, but I've also heard people have had good results.

Best of luck with your shoot.
