I use a sony HVR-Z1U with the factory sony shotgun mic, and sony wireless mics. I'm saving up for sennheiser wireless mics though. The Z1U is the bigger brother to your FX1 it has the XLR inputs. We try to use wireless mics whenever possible, it makes for much better audio. I think R+V are using the newer Sony HD's but I'm not sure on the model # they have an upgraded optical zoom 20x I think. I'm not real familiar w/ the canon line sorry
If the basic criteria for a vampire is a living entity that sucks the life out of you in order to sustain itself, then I know a few. They tend to hide out in Washington, DC.
