  • Excerpt: The long-anticipated Canon GL2 miniDV camcorder is finally on dealers' shelves and it's a honey. Canon has made a significant number of improvements to the three year old (and now discontinued) GL1. Perhaps the most important is the addition of manual audio control. The GL2 looks larger than its predecessor, and it is, but just barely. The overall length has grown by an inch and a quarter. The height and width remain the same.
