I'm looking at purchasing a Canon VIXIA HF M300 and putting a DOF adapter, 35mm lens, and LCD monitor (which I already have). My questions are these:

1. How would you compare the light sensitivity of this camera's CMOS sensor as compared to the Canon XL1? The m300 has 1/4 image sensor and the XL1 has three 1/3 CCDs. My DOF adapter eats up half stop of light, so I'm a bit worried here.

2. Can I capture the video while I'm shooting it through the HDMI out so that I'll capture uncompressed?

3. Most my videos (but not all) will be destined for SD delivery in DVD. According to a review, you can shoot decent quality videos with the m300 when recording at 24Mbps. Should I capture at that rate and then convert the footages to SD? I'm thinking that since the final delivery is SD anyway, I can shoot at 17 Mbps and get longer shooting time.

4. Is the 24p in this camera the same as the 24p in the Panasonic DVX100B (24 fps with pulldown on an NTSC 29.97 timeline)?

Thank you very much guys!
