My question is in regards to output connections. Currently I have a GL1 and a GL2; BOTH of which have worn loose the 1394 firewire (mini) connections. I'm losing connectivity between the camera and laptop (using DV Rack / On location). Is there a better camera output I should be looking for when shopping for replacement cameras? When moving the camera over and over on the tripod, the connections have become loose. These cameras are approximately 6 years old and need replacing anyways. I don't want to make the same mistake with new equipment. Any suggestions out there? Thanks to all!
