badger – you’ve gotten a lot of good advice here – but there is only so much depth of field you can squeeze out of a small sensor camcorder – and I am not a big fan of either adapters or DSLRs for weddings. Too complicated.
Your MC2000Es are great camcorders, but you’ll need something with a larger sensor in order to get the effect you’re looking for.
Your 1/4″ sensor is even smaller than the 1/2.88″ used in the comparison.
If you really need shallow DoF, you might want to think about trading in one of your cameras for a Sony NEX-VG20E. It is the only large sensor camcorder in the same price range as your HXRs.
Good luck and Best of the New Year!
