'The XL2 utilizes its 4:3 chip in a way that is unique among 16:9 modes.'
'anon's new XL2 camcorder offers an evolutionary design and new professional features - including a choice of 60i, 24p or 30p frame rates, 4:3 or high resolution 16:9 aspect ratio, new 680,000 pixel progressive scan CCDs, and a full line of customizable controls for cine-looking results'
'the GL2 has a manual focus ring that can't override its autofocus, and there's no override button to quickly reset focus to infinity when the camera loses focus lock or inappropriately focuses on a foreground object.'
'The GL2 is a must-have for the person looking for the very best video-making experience.'
'some recessed buttons were difficult to locate without taking our eyes off of a moving subject.'
'The mode dial on the GL1 that allowed you to switch from automatic to manual modes with a single spin has been replaced with an only slightly less convenient push-and-turn on-screen menu.'
