Summary: This camera is great deal for the money I paid for it. I drag race motorcycles and I needed a top of the line camera for videos at the races. The best thing I like is that it has an eye piece because that most of all the digital cameras of today only have the view screen that can hardly be seen in the daylight.
Workhorse camera with high quality and relatively low cost. I'll buy more.

Summary: I have found that the Canon GL 2 is easy to use and easy to train people who are inexperienced with technology to use, as well. It has more features than most people will need, and operates with excellent quality without going to really expensive cameras. Of the three I bought, two did not have the output cord. If you need one, don't buy the really cheap cord. They just don't work. Get the real one and save your aggravation.
The Canon GL2 is a prosumer camera that anyone can use

Excerpt: The Canon GL2 is one of the highest rated Prosumer Digital Camcorders. If you are an amateur to professional videographer This camera is the one for you. The Canon Gl2 is very easy to use and has features that a professional videographer can appreciate. There are two modes of use (automatic, and manual) In automatic mode the camera focuses and controls lighting for you, for the professional it also allows you to manually control the focus and white balance.
Excerpt: The GL2 is a great camera with very good quality video. When buying on-line some dealers give a low price but the unit comes with no battery charger or lens etc. Deal with a company that does not use the bait and switch games. I'm very happy with the camera and it also picks up real good audio with the built in camera mic.
