Insane Camcorder deal!!!!
« on: December 24, 2006, 05:46:42 PM »
==============EDIT:  I recently found out this site is EXTREMELY unreliable, rude and will try to scam you out of your money.  The camera is still good though and I am finding some other good deals.============

So yeah, I have been looking for a new camcorder since my last one broke (My friend landed a kong on it). I wanted something of slightly higher quality than my last one. I found this:

http://reviews.cnet.com/Canon_GL2/4505-6500_7-20224838.html

It is the canon GL2. Technically it is a camcorder but it produces broadcast quality footage and has a broacast quality lense. It has soooo many features. But that is to be expected from a camera costing 1 to 3 grand right?

Here's the great part. Canon GL2 from camera city for $819!!!:

SCAM!!! http://www.ccicameracity.com/cngl2.html SCAM!!!

They say it is a special. This is an insane deal. I can't find any that even comes close. So now I'm saving up.

Does anyone have experience with this website or camera?

Thanks.

The GL2 is so much better than the HV10!!  The only advantage is that it shoots in HD.  It has orrible sound quality (probably doesn't even have an external mic jack), you can't put it on a tripod, ETC.

The GL2 isn't HD but it is still extremely good and in conditions other than perfect lighting, will outperform the HD10.  Plus the sound quality is great with the high quality mounted omnidirectional mic. which you can always just not use by plugging in an external mic.  The GL2 can be mounted on a tripod and also has an extremely good lense.  Basically, this camera is like a mini, compact version of what proffesionals use for broadcasting. 

Also, I will be using this camera for more than just parkour.  I'm really into filming and editing etc.

So yeah, I'll take the GL2.
