sorry about the weird picture things, don't really know how to do that, but whats better or worse about either? i've looked a little and i can find stuff saying the gl2 is pretty good but i want a skiers opinion
you kidding? thats not even remotely in that price range, plus i doubt he needs something of that quality. I'd say depending on your goals you would probably want to just stick with SD cameras. If you plan on releasing movies later i'd say wait out for the HD technology to get better and just pick up a middle-end-3ccd SD camera, maybe something like the gs500. If you're just gunna be making edits to put on the internet go with the gl2. For that price you might also want to check out the panny dvc30 and the vx2100. the 2100 is a bit more but very nice. Another one is the dvx100, a bit more than the 2100 but better, definitely the best SD camera in that range.
