Nikon P100 used for B-Roll, Is that a mistake?

Do you think I'm setting myself up for a lot or Post Production work, if I depend on using a Nikon Coolpix P100 to shoot my B-Roll shots and a XHA1 for the primary? (Yes, going to attempt HD) I have not compared side by side footage shot with the two. I just received the Nikon and thought I would ask before spending a lot of time.

obviously don't wade into a paying gig with it .. run basic tests then move up or out.

Cheers.

Thanks Allan. I like that, straight and to the point. The Nikon was a gift. Maybe I should re-gifted it!
