I’d like to get a decent camera and learn to make some
documentary type videos. Being a poor boy I’m looking
at older used models. Since I’ll be doing some shooting
of lakes and wildlife a strong zoom would be best, so to
begin with I decided on a GL2. But that has no XLR inputs,
so what would be needed to use external mics? Would it be
better to pay a few hundred dollars more for a used XL1?
How much performance difference is there between an XL1
and an XL1S?
Thank you for any advice or suggestions!
