Considering a GL2...

Post  LegoShark on Fri Dec 12, 2008 4:56 am

What do you think? I would be able to use it for my stop-motion, but I'd need to zoom in on the little set, and use a tripod. I'm fine with using a tripod, but I'd need to rearrange my lighting setup and overall organization of my small set.

The GL2 is a nice camera but if you can spend a little more or find a good deal the Panasonic DVX-100B is a great for the price.

I would go with the DV100 like Sonic says. Its a little more expensive but you have more options than the GL2. You might even want to consider an HD camera since everything is turning over soon

I have the Panasonic DVX-100A and the lack of being able to shoot in HD is killing me. So I went out and got me the Canon HV30.

The production value of the Panasonic is still great and the in camera features are far and away better.

Mark said you have more options with the panasonic, but the ablite to change lenses on the GL2 is a huge plus.

Again, broken record here, just get any video camera and start shooting at stuff. A great Videographer/Editor can make even the cheapest of equipment look good.

Well I think that is probably what I will have to do. Just get a camera and start shooting stuff. I am having a major problem.. I just do not know enough to make an educated purchase right now. I started off looking at the GL2 and DVX100A and then after this the DVX100B. The thing is I want to record in HD. As well I do not know what software can and can not handle HD film. The only thing I can find right off that is an HD cam is this one

Man it is just a barely above what I want to spend.

Personally I've always been a little disappointed with the Canon video cameras, for me, they always seem kind of smeary and perform poorly in low-light situations.

I'm a bigger fan of Sony and Panasonic when it comes to video.

Also, someone mentioned doing stop-motion with video. If you have the software to edit video with, I would recommend using a digital still camera to do stop-motion, you will get much better resolution/image quality.

Welcome to the forums James.
I've used Panasonic, Sony and Canon cameras at the college...all professional type gear

I found the Canon XL1A make the best quality image.
The Sony HDR-FX1 is also nice and is light weight but the lens is fixed on the cam and not as good as the Canons'.
