Canon GL2 mini DV Digital Video Camera
With the GL2, Canon has created a camcorder with a wealth of features, each selected to elevate further the standard against which other camcorders are judged. The GL2 is a must-have for the person looking for the very best video-making experience. The GL2's excellence begins with its outstanding Fluorite lens and includes pro-level picture adjustment features found in Canon's higher-end camcorders.

Incorporating precision optics, superior digital processing, and a sleek innovative design, the Canon GL2 offers reliable professional performance. Offering the highest level of control, the camera fully compliments one's vision and passion for excellence. Its advanced feature set allows users to handle even the most challenging tasks with confidence and ease.

For those using the GL2 for pro applications, or those with specific video-production needs, Canon offers a number of accessories designed to meet your every creative need. These range from additional power sources and microphones to lights and cables. Make sure you see how the GL2's Advanced Accessory Shoe opens up a world of new accessories.




Genuine Canon Optics: 20X Optical Zoom Lens
The GL2 incorporates a 20x Professional L-Series Fluorite optical zoom lens, which transforms distant subjects into dramatic close-ups. The 20x optical zoom is the 35 mm focal length equivalent of 39.5 -- 790 mm. Add the optional WD-58 Widewide-converter to increase the field of view by 30% for indoor shots or panoramic views.
USB Terminal
Allows high speed transfer of memory card data to computers mounting the USB terminal. By using the USB cable and software provided, you can process and organize still images on your PC. The camcorder functions as a memory
card reader/writer. Bundled software: ZoomBrowser EX (Windows) / ImageBrowser (Macintosh). You can easily download, browse, archive and retouch still images.
IEEE1394 DV Terminal
The GL2 is equipped with a DV IN/OUT terminal that conforms to IEEE1394. It takes just a single digital cable to transfer or copy your videos in pure digital form to your DV compatible computer or another Canon DV camcorder. Once you’ve transferred video images to your computer, you can edit your movies, stream then over the Internet, or post them on your Web site.
Optical Image Stabilizer
Canon's superb optical stabilization system corrects camera shake instantly so even hand held shots, at full telephoto, and shots taken from a moving car, are smooth and steady. And since it is optical, there is no loss of image quality inevitable with electronic image stabilizers. It perfectly complements the high picture quality of the DV format.
Interval Recording
Interval recording allows for the capture of time elapsed motion videography. The GL2 can be programmed to record at various intervals for varying amounts of time.

Professional L-Series Fluorite Lens
Canon has satisfied the demands of experienced image makers for years through the power, design and quality of 35mm and broadcast TV lenses. Canon's Professional L-Series lenses utilize Fluorite, a material which provides outstanding resolution, contrast, and color reproduction- especially in lightweight, high-magnification lenses. Incorporated into the lens on the GL2, Fluorite delivers the ultimate in clarity and image quality. The Fluorite element inside the lens defeats color aberration -- the effect when the components of light stray from one another within a lens, causing a reduction in sharpness, contrast and color. The Fluorite lens precisely controls components of light providing an excellent balance of these three critical ingredients of picture quality. This is unobtainable with conventional optical glass.

Genuine Canon Optics: 20X Optical Zoom Lens
The GL2 incorporates a 20x Professional L-Series Fluorite optical zoom lens, which transforms distant subjects into dramatic close-ups. The 20x optical zoom is the 35 mm focal length equivalent of 39.5 -- 790 mm. Add the optional WD-58 Widewide-converter to increase the field of view by 30% for indoor shots or panoramic views.

The digital zoom, capable of extending to 40x and a maximum of 100x, provides sharper detail compared to others thanks to Canon's superior lens quality. You'll reveal details too distant to be seen with just the eye alone. At full telephoto, the 35 mm focal length equivalent is an amazing 39500 mm.

3 CCD with Pixel Shift Technology
The Canon GL2 has three CCDs, delivering outstanding picture quality, highly accurate color reproduction and a wide dynamic range with virtually no color noise. On top of that, Canon has improved a broadcast technology to create a new form of Pixel Shift, producing greater picture quality than that of camcorders using CCDs with almost twice the number of pixels.

Optical Image Stabilizer
Canon's superb optical stabilization system corrects camera shake instantly so even hand held shots, at full telephoto, and shots taken from a moving car, are smooth and steady. And since it is optical, there is no loss of image quality inevitable with electronic image stabilizers. It perfectly complements the high picture quality of the DV format.

Aspect Ratios
The Canon GL2 offers you both the standard 4:3 image aspect ratio that's as common as your TV screen and a 16:9 widescreen aspect ratio. The numbers represent the ratio of the screen width to its height.

4:3
Whether you're using the GL2 to make wedding videos, business videos, documentaries or simple home movies for play back on a standard TV or monitor, the standard 4:3 aspect ratio is your choice.

4:3 with 16:9 Electronic Guides on viewfinder
You can select white, 16:9 aspect ratio guide lines to appear in the viewfinder, viewscreen, or on an external monitor when recording in 4:3 aspect ratio. This version of the 4:3 aspect ratio allows for later conversion to 16:9, the standard aspect ratio for HDTV and a more common aspect ratio for film.

16:9 (Electronic Anamorphic)
Also available on the GL2 is the 16:9 aspect ratio, for playback on widescreen TVs. This is menu-selectable and electronically squeezes the image being recorded to tape. When played back, these images are stretched to fit the wider aspect ratio.

Interval Recording
Interval recording allows for the capture of time elapsed motion videography. The GL2 can be programmed to record at various intervals for varying amounts of time.
