Combining XL1 and 110U SD in Project

I have a number of scenes I shot with an XL1, that would be helpful if I could incorporate in a project using the 110U. Are there any glaring issues I might encounter in combining the two?
thanks...Jon

Hi,
I can help here. I have had no issues with the footage mix. You will find that the JVC is way sharper than the XL1s.

thanks for the reply! I noticed in my haste in posing the question I failed to note, I would shoot the 110u in SD...so I would have SD scenes from both cameras. Does this affect your response?

Not at all. I was comparing the two cameras in SD. I have owned an XL1s for three years till I bought the JVC. THe JVC really has a much sharper image.

I noticed the same way with the HD100's SD sharpness vs XL1, XL2 or DVX . I wonder if it's because of the HD100's precise focus assist?

No, I dont think so. In all the two cameras just dont compare. I used to think the XL1s was great till I bought the JVC111. Recently i used the Canon for some aerial shots from a small aircraft because of its image stabilisation and it is nowhere near as sharp as the JVCHD111.

Hi Brian,
My reply here is comparing the SD shoots. I shoot everything now in HDV and downconvert in FCP itself. I just love the HDV look in the JVC. My work is with TV commercials etc.

My comment was based on SD shooting live. I really like the 4x3 60i that the HD100 gives me. Of course, HDV 24/30p is just beautiful.

Jon,

I recently used both my XL1 and HD100 for a wedding shoot (SD on both), and the color balances are totally different. While you can manually tweak your camera & white balance settings, there's only so much you can do to try and match them up. It's very noticeable. If this is an important shoot, definitely experiment before hand.

Maybe try this: In post, put your Canon files on one track, JVC on the other. Export one (or both) sequence as it's own file using as little compression as possible. Bring the file(s) back into into your editor, and use color correction on one to match the other. When you're done, export together. While the JVC is sharper, I find its colors are very toned down compared to the Canon. Therefore, it may be easier to color correct the Canon file to the JVC footage. Good luck :).

I found the JVC's colors dull too but then I tried Pauolo's True Color and now they pop. Have you tried True Color?

No, I haven't. Where do I get it, and how is it loaded into the camera?
