I am going to be shooting some interviews soon. The main camera is an XHA1 which I would like to use in HD mode. During the interview, I would like to use a 2nd camera to get some close ups of the subject or just a different angle for visual interest. The problem is I only have an old consumer JVC Everio SD cam available to me. Am I right in saying the only way I can combine the HD and SD footage, would be to have the SD footage as 'picture in picture' ? I'm guessing that wouldn't make good viewing? Is there any way around this, other than shooting everything in SD?
The JVC camera is a bit rubbish all-round really. So what about these HD Flip cams or the iPod4 ? Will that work for combining HD footage with the XHA1?
