Here this is some footage I shot at XMAS time of my aunt telling stories. It's just family stuff but it should give you a basic idea of what the GL2 is capable of. Its 40 seconds long and 7.3 MB. I didn't compress it too much so you could see some quality stuff. Enjoy!

Scott excellent - Who IS that young woman? A lot of life and fun!!!

Max, if you are truly coinsidering doing some extensive "audio" work with the XM2 - consider a shotgun mic. Lots of discussions here on what alternatives to look at. Here I use a Sennihieser - no complaints. Maybe on the 2nd channel a controllable "ambient" sound mic - controls are ready to hand with the XM2.

Have fun - Grazie

Here you go, some are better than others, I'm still new at it. These files are all pretty huge, I'd suggest that you right click and save as. Sorry, not too much in the way of audio.

OK guys, I have so far only recorded audio with a wireless lavalier on this cam (I usually use the XL1 and just got the GL) so am looking for suggestions on audio...like does anyone have any experience taking audio direct from the PA mixing board? It has been no problem on the XL when taping live events where they are using amplification, and it sure beats trying to set up microphones all over the place! But the XL has clearly identified line level inputs, what about the GL?

His audio clips were captured using a wireless lav mic, not the GL2's mic so if what your looking for is some sample audio off the GL2's on-board mic that is not a good sample. His clips may have been captured onto the GL2 but that doesn't reflect the quality of the GL2 mic, only the quality of his lav mic. If your looking for some GL2 audio, I will tell you this, it's not great. It is not very directional and picks up a lot of sound from the back and the sides. If you want to test it your self try going to a local camera or electronics store that carries the GL2. Bring a MiniDV tape with you so you can record some test footage. Also if you tell me some of the kind of tests you want recorded, I will see what I can do for you this weekend and will post them on my website. Just let me know what you want and I'll try!

Also be aware the GL2 has a voice mode for it's mic, which imitates a zoom mic somewhat.

I just tend not to trust the stock camcorder mic of ANY camcorder for audio much beyond crowd noise, etc., or for those fast-and-furious run-and-gun situations where there is no time to power up and plug in the wireless (or find the cable for the wired mic).

I made "Alphadogah" on Triggerstreet.com with my GL2, using the camera mic and almost all auto settings, just to get used to the camera. No lighting or anything extra. Of course, it's been compressed for the site.

I just bought a GL2, my first video camera purchase ever, and have posted some clips. These are in Windows Media format at 1.5 mbps.

WOW!!! Who IS that parot?

I knew this camera is remarkable - BUT!

Loved the parrot! Love it whistling at the . . . female!

The detail and clarity is superb.

I'm going off today for a video tutorial with a ProVideographer - will show him your results.

Yours is the GL2 so NTSC. Mine is a XM2, so PAL. Don't you just love the way through this digital medium we can "span" the continental-canyon - no problems.

Oh yes! Your encoder to MWP, what was it? What rate etc etc.... The clarity, as I said was superb.

Thank you very m uch for re-conferming my purchase decision,

Any chance of uploading to your or similar site shots of London Town?

Grazie - Keep 'em coming!!!!

Re: WOW!!! Who IS that parot?

Hi, Grazie. I live in southern California, so I won't be putting up London footage in the immediate future. (-: You can count on this, where ever I go, the GL2 will be going with me. You should see the output to a digital television. It amazes me!

I used Pinnacle Studio version 8.3 to capture and to output the WMV files. The settings were 640x480, 44.1 Khz, and 1.5 Mbps.

Where are you located? I'm upload a volleyball clip soon.

Thanks for the "heads-up" on the S8.3 and the encode info.

"Where are you located? " - Why?

Volleyball clip - can't wait.

Cheers - Grazie
