Welcome Tatjana!

The VX2100 is an amazing cam for the price and for a little more you can get the PD170 with built-in XLRs. Either of these cams will give you a great picture and I would only consider the XL2 if you require widescreen and 24p/30p.

Keep in mind the XL2 only uses the the full 1/3 inch chips in the 16:9 mode.......4:3 is the same as 1/4 inch chips.

Should I wait for canon xl2, in which I ''fell in love'' right after it was announced to come out (little short on cash to get it just now)? In any case I'd use it for short videos and some documentary work.
Decisions...
Right now I'm (un)happy with my little sony dcr-trv60E (very cute for home use, but of course no more than that). -->>>

A lot of cams don't use the entire CCD for 4:3 especially ones with 680k or more pixels per CCD.

The reason a lot of us passed on the XL1 or 2 is tha lack of a decent side screen. In my view, and for my type of shooting, this is a very serious omission.
