A perfect camcorder is the weapon of a photographer, and I am passionate about Canon. I personally felt Canon GL2 Camcorder has replaced Canon Three-CCD GL1 Mini DV Camcorder by its out standing features and performance. A serious photographer needs ultimate control on their camcorder and obviously Canon GL2 delivers it. Controlling zoom while recording a picture is the most important for user, and canon excels in controlling the zoom by 20x optical zoom with 100x digital zoom. Apparently it has a manual zoom but it also surprises user with multiple option of zooming, it has one zoom control on the grip and another is on the top handle. Two zooms can be set in two different modes i.e. one is in extreme fast or slow and the other in variable mode and it makes the shooting easier in live situation. The focus of this camcorder is controlled by a focus ring around the lens and automatic or manual focus toggle button. The camcorder also has aperture control and shutter speed control. In automatic shooting mode the exposure wheel can be controlled manually to compensate the over all exposure by setting the exposure lock. If the camcorder is switched to fully manual mode then the user can get total control over aperture and the shutter speed. It has total 29 steps to control the shutter speed and 1/30th of a second shutter speed is newly introduced in Canon GL2, which is named as clear scan, and it is based on Hertz (Hz).
I experienced a movie look in the video recorded by Canon GL2 because it has frame movie mode which allows shooting 30 frames per second in progressive scan video. It has a unique feature of custom preset which allows the user to set the color gain, sharpness and the brightness.
This camcorder has two shooting mode i.e. Easy Recording and TV Mode. In the first mode the camcorder itself takes control over all features and in the second mode user gets control on most of its features apart from gain and aperture. This camcorder gives best performance even in low light when used with fully manual mode.
Though the large screen is preferred but still 2.5inchs LCD screen on this camcorder enhances its appearance. Canon has taken care of audio in this camcorder also. It has audio mixing option with two audio channels.
The most exiting factor of this camcorder is the price. It is available within the range of $2400-$2799.
