Canon XH A1 Audio Help. Use stock mic with wireless

I want to use my stock mic and use a wireless lav and i cant seem to be able to use them both since the wirless is on the XLR in and the on camera mic is on camera. I change the settings in camera to XLR on under audio options and i cant seem to have the stock mic on one channel and the external mic (xlr on the other) I have a shoot tomorrow and help would be great. thanks

Sadly this is not possible on the XH-A1. You would need its newer model to do that. Next option is to pick up an XLR Shotgun mic to use in your second XLR Chan.

Note that this is the XL1/XL1S forum, probably not the best place to ask questions about the XH A1.

That said, if you want to use an on-camera mic in combination with a wireless mic, with the HX A1, you will need to use an external on-camera mic, not the built-in mic.

With the XL1 and its successors family of camcorders, you can use the stock on-camera stereo mic with a wireless or two if you record in 4-channel mode.
