Each pixel is 72 square microns, which is about 1.5 times the size as those in competing camcorders. The GL2 also incorporates a 20x Professional L-Series fluorite optical zoom lens, which is equivalent to 39.5-790mm, as well as a 100x digital zoom.
The GL2's audio recording system includes an omni-directional microphone, meters and dials for separate control over two audio channels, and an option to add an adapter compatible with professional XLR-terminated microphones. Canon's superb optical stabilization system corrects camera shake instantly and you can turn your GL2 into a still camera by switching to 1.7-megapixel photo mode and capturing high-resolution still images onto the camcorder's MultiMedia/Secure Digital card. So if youre ready to leap for the next stage, the GL2 is the camcorder for you!
