Summary: The Canon GL1 is a great, user friendly, broadcast quality camera. I purchased it to use for production of local television commercials, issues pramming, and a weekly church service. While it does not have the luxury of multiple lenses, it is very versatile. The image stabilization on this camera is one of the most notable features, as is its "shifted" (and pretty convincing) 16:9 setting. However, the camera does not do well in poor lighting.
Summary: This camera is awesome. Everything about it is decent, simple and straight forward. Functionality so far for me has been quite excellent, and there have been no problems. Charger is very quick at charging as well. Video quality is great, and the frame shooting mode is fun to shoot with, since it adds a cinematic quality to the film. I'm excited to get filming with this camera so pick one up for yourself!
Summary: It's defently not worth the price listed in most shops and store (3,000) but I can't be made at the price I got it for. It have an awsome picture quallity and it performs a great rack focus. The zoom however isn't so great. Still a great camera for beginnners.
Summary: I use this camcorder to film skateboarding and it's nice if you set it on manual and take some time to set the settings. I would also highly recommend anyone who buys this to purchase a external microphone since the on board mic is not too good but overall it's a great prosumer camcorder.
Summary: This looks to be a great camera. Easy to use and fun! It is an older camera but it still has a great picture and with the new USB capture devices its easy to upload your videos to the computer for editing. All in all a great camera.
Summary: This camcorder bridges the gap from professional video to everyday user. It makes your video's professional quality without the major editing costs. Easy to use and a bounty of accessories to be had for every shooting need. I use the HD lenses and can't believe the clarity and sharpness. For the first timer to the movie makers this unit will capture it all.
Summary: We like every thing about it; size, wt, easy usability. This is great for mini films and family functionality. We decided on this camera after watching many independent you tube films with this camera. It is great for snowboarding and skateboarding footage. Plus it's awesome to shoot the kid's sporting events. very easy to use.
Summary: This camcorder is over a decade old now, but still performs better than many consumer camcorders on the market. Of course it won't get as nice of an image as a decent HD camcorder, but it certainly has better image quality than pretty much any consumer level standard def camcorders and even some of the cheaper HD camcorders. Performs decently in low light. Outperforms my new consumer camcorders (canon zr930 and panasonic pv-gs85) Microphone is decent.
Summary: What I like about this item is that it picks up very good pictures/footage in low light. The battery lasts a long time also. I disliked about the canon Gl 1 is that you have to clean it and be fragile with it. If the heads get dirty in the item it isnt cheap to clean them. The reason i bought the canon gl 1 is to film the outdoors and hunts.
