Comments about Canon Canon GL-2 Digital Camcorder Kit:

This is a great camcorder for anyone that likes to take good quality video and edit it to a very presentable movie. It is lightweight but very durable. I accidentally tested its durablilty one time when filming a short motocross video, i was set up on a mound of dirt with my GL2 on a tripod and I lost my balance on the loose gravel and then the high winds blew the camera and tripod over, the bottom of the camera broke out and remained attached to the plate on the tripod and the battery broke away the damage was about $[...] in parts, the battery suffered a minor crack in the plastic housing but the battery mount on the camera was untouched. I promptly put the battery back in to see if it was ruined but it powered on and functioned normally besides the fact i could no longer mount it to a tripod but the piece on the bottom of the camera that broke was not expensive to replace, i know a few other cameras would have been turned into scrap over that event.It is really good for getting in tight places where you need good quality video, filming something out of a car window is no hassle.It is great for filming hunting activites because of the handle on top with zoom and rec/pause buttions allows for getting great shots of walking through the woods and it is great because you can carry the camera easily and be able to start shooting at a moments notice and requre no special motions to get from a carrying position to a filming position which is important when keeping motion to a minimum to avoid scareing the animal you are hunting.
