I absolutely love my Canon Gl-2 digital videocamera for a number of reasons. For starters, it makes a great impression and if you're in the video business, that's important - it's beautiful and has a sleek two-toned (black and silver) body and special canon lens that these cameras are known for. Its very comparable to the bigger model, Canon Xl-2, but I find that while the larger camera may seem more effective, the 3-CCD GL-2 retains the picture quality but packs it in a smaller, more portable body.
Another reason why the Canon Gl-2 could be great for a specific videographer, is the LCD viewfinder that comes in handy if you're doing an overhead shot. I believe this camcorder is a great tool for the semi-proffesional videographer. It's not quite HD, but its a far reach better than a normal camcorder! I love my camera.
