B-roll cam for HPX170

Hey helpful DV folks.

I am considering an inexpensive ($400 street) b-roll camera to go with my two HPX170s and am hoping someone here can offer some advice.

I shoot mostly performance events like plays and dance recitals, where this camera would typically be used for a wide, lock-down shot. Ease of matching the image to the extent possible is high on the list of wants as is decent low-light performance.

If my budget is unrealistic, feel free to suggest more expensive options.

Don't know if it helps but I have been using a canon HF11 handycam as a b-cam to my HPX 371 P2 cameras for a few years now!
