this is my solution, instead of using lavs, or wireless, I simply use a good shotgun with a good directional pick up pattern and a Boom and arm, this way i get good quality sound everywhere, with no noise, and there is not cords on the person to hide.
as for a camera, i would look at a sony nex vg20 the preamps in this camera can be controlled, one problem you will encounter is when converting a balanced (XLR) signal to an unbalanced (3.5) the preamps will jack the signal around. the vg20 has good audio controls so that the signal doesn't get jacked around producing louder noise
