2 Buttons I wish the A1 remote had.

95% of the spots I shoot have me in them, there are two buttons that I wish the Xh-A1s Remote had. 1 would be the white balance, and 2 would be the Exposure lock.

When I'm the actor in all my spots, it's really hard to set the the exposure lock, I realize that in Manual mode you wouldn't have to, but it's even harder to record in manual mode when I am the subject being shot.

The white balance isn't quite as bad since I can just tape a piece of paper where I'm gonna stand and hit the custom white balance button, but it would be cool if I could just stand in front of the camera and hold the paper and hit a button on the remote.

I've had a few Heineken's tonight and thought I would just bitch a little. HEHE

You might consider adding others in your filmmaking adventures, maybe someone to operate the camera when you are acting?

Well I do sometimes but because of my odd filming hours I can't have someone there all the time.
