This awesome Canon GL2 MiniDV Digital Camcorder can be considered as a prosumer level product. Therefore it is something better than the regular entry level camcorder but not as bulky or complicated as a professional version.
This digicam has a flip display screen. The lens guard is useful to keep the glare from the sunlight. The lens cover is handily attached to the camera with a coed and tucks into a slot at the side so you will never lose the over. It also accommodates SD memory card.
This digicam produces photos that are great colors and very clear images. There is the standard auto settings but manual settings are also made available. The on/off switch, zoom and wide-angle button is located on the handle itself which makes this digicam easy to operate. Other manual settings are for white balance, exposure, aperture and audio level. This digicam also has stereo microphone and has audio auto sensors. This digicam also takes still images.
Another cool feature is the film mode which produces a movie clip that resembles the old fashioned ones recorded on films.
Being a prosumer level digicam, the Canon GL2 MiniDV Digital Camcorder has the best features of a professional digicam but yet more compact in design. It is sturdy, lightweight and an ease to bring along everywhere be it to weddings, family outings, sports events or anywhere.
Make sure you inquire about package deals like getting an extra battery or carrying case.
