Well, the wedding went off without a hitch. I was lucky enough to enlist my brother to be 2nd cam in the balcony. My XH-A1 worked great and the footage looked pretty good.

The only problem I may have is that my 2nd cam is a VX-2100 so there may be a mismatch in the color balance. But I love that camera - it always takes a great picture and you can't beat the low light capability.

So I am eager to get it into my editing app and starting working on it.

Thanks for all of the help.

Awesome. I think it's better to have two cameras with different color settings than just to have one camera.

Glad it worked out!

I hate having to color match because of different cameras. I used 2 Pd170s for the wedding I did on Saturday and it is so nice to not have to adjust anything. I haven't used a vx2100 but the pd170 can do great low light stuff as well.

Yeah, the PD-170 and the VX-2100 are the same camera optically. PD170 has professional audio and some other features, but they both take the same great video.
