The GL2 has become my secret weapon, I recently shot an audition reel for an "Andrew Sisters" act. I shot the whole thing in less than ten minutes with only one Tota light. The booking agency had never seen anything I'd shot. It was a last minute deal so they weren't expecting much. When the woman started to view the footage her mouth dropped open (I thought I was going to get fired on the spot!) When it was over she asked me what I shot it with (again, I thought it was axe time) I told her I shot it all on the GL2 and I don't think she believed me at first, she asked again if I shot it with a BetaCam. She said she has been reviewing audition tapes for 20+ years and she said it was some of the best image quality she had ever seen. It's also about 10lbs lighter than a BCam and about 1/2 the weight of an XL1(s) it has it shortcomings, but they are most definately outweighed by the image quality, the insane run times with bp945's and the ability to "just shoot" and end up with outstanding images.

Thanks Buddy for your fantastic footage and the insight on the Panasonic DVX100, everyone has been raving about it but all of your points are valid. I have not read anything negative about it until you mentioned you got rid of yours. Not a bad camera just not suited to your style of shooting. Thanks for the honest info.

Mark

p.s. I delivered the Andrew Sisters on SVHS
