I just got a friend with a Canon xh-a1 and I want it to know if I could have any problems with my Varicam footage.

The shoots that I need to shoot they look like stills but in motion, pretty much they are all location shots


Thanks for all your help

Well since you can adjust the color, gamma and so on quite a bit in both cameras you should be able to dial in a look that's a decent match between the two. But since you can adjust the color, gamma and so on quite a bit in both cameras you're not going to get a decent match unless you dial it in... ;)

Then there's the issue of the mismatch between 1/3" chips and a fixed lens, vs. 2/3" chips and an HD lens.
