Canon GL2 vs Sony DSR-PDX10

Hi,

I'm looking for a good camcorder for film-making, and these are the two that I found around my budget ($1,700-$2,100). I will be using the camcorder only for film-making, shorts and feature length independent films. I wanted to get your guys take on this issue on which one you would prefer me to use. I heard about the pdx10's 16:9 mode, but also it's bad smearing with lighting and whatnot, and also heard nothing but semi good things about the GL2.

I'm sure this question has been asked before, sorry :( .

Browse back through the PDX-10 forum, this exact topic has been discussed more than once. A quick look found this thread for starters...

The PDX10 is great for careful work, where lighting and shots are at least somewhat controlled (and smear avoided).
