I finally got my Canon XH-A1 last week from a dvinfo.net seller (thanks Dave, http://www.dvinfo.net/conf/private-c...d280-more.html). If there's any newer advice on working with the HC1, I'd love to hear it.

I don't plan on selling my HC1, keeping it mainly for my personal events. I'd like to work alongside my XH-A1 sometimes with this cam, or maybe I'll use as a behind the scenes cam on projects.

I have the HC1 and an A1 as welll and I will be combining shots from them both. Sorry can't give you too much advice right now other that I find the HC1 does not perform well in low light so I don't use it in those situations. I'll keep track of this thread and will relay my experience as I use them together more and more.

Since I have 2 A1s now, my HC1 is being used less and mainly as a tape loader. Occasionally, I used the HC1 for wider shots and A1 for the tighter shots. Also, I think it helps to apply the blur filter on the HC1 footage so that it matches better than the A1 in post. Good luck.
