Getting the right capture equipment

Finding the right video camera to capture this year’s training trip has been a production. As much as I like running around with my Nikon D300s, it’s just not practical for expedition filming. It’s great for dual-capture for video when you have time to set things up but definitely not when you have to run-and-gun as the saying goes.
Right now the two main contenders are:
Canon Vixia G10
Canon XA10
Both are based on the same body but the XA10 has additional microphone abilities.
