That is a serious design flaw in my opinion. I can't tell you how many shoots I have done where I need one line input and one mic input.

Also, it looks like you have to set both channels to either auto or manual level control and that you can't set them independently. Someone please correct me if am wrong on this, but that is the way it appears to me from the photos of the A1 I have seen (I don't currently own one).

From the beautiful clips that I have watched this appears to be a great camera, I just wish that Canon had thought the audio through a little more...
