Still/DV Twilight Zone

Thought I'd sent my first post to you, the "Still People", since that's where I've been tha past 2 years with a Canon Pro90, shooting flowers/plants.
Now I want to make nature films and have decided on the GL2. And I have all the standard questions about accessories and where to go buy all of it. I've looked around the board and found bits and pieces. Is there one place where I can get the consensus, or the wisdom of one or more experts?
One key question I have is about editing software. What comes with the GL2? Do I need something better than that? Is their browzer OK? (for my Pro90 everyone bought another -- BreezeBrowzer).
I've already decided that I need a wide converter, extra battery pack and a raincover.
Pehaps one of you can point me to where I could find the answers to these and other questions most every newbie has. (I'm virtually new to video recording as well).
Thanks a bunch

Check out the Canon GL1 / Son of Watch Dog forum on this same site

For video editing, check out the Post Production -- and Beyond!!! section

The GL2 doesn't come with any video editing software. There is NO consensus as to which video editor is best. Here's a list of some of the more popular ones:

Final Cut Pro (Mac only)
Adobe Premiere Pro
Pinnacle Edition
Avid Xpress DV
Sony Vegas

Ulead Video Studio
Pinnacle Studio DV 8
Vegas Video Factory

For photos, the GL2 comes with Zoombrowser EX, you might try using Breezebrowser with it, not sure if it will work.
