I’ve read that some Canon GL2 camcorders suddenly refuse to recognise that they have a tape loaded. Does anyone know what the percentage of these is and how long the problem takes to appear (when it does)?
I’m hoping to get a new camcorder – Sony VX2100 or GL2 are possibilities. The advantage of the Canon is that it’s lighter but that’s not much use if it stops working.
I have heard MANY people say they get “dirty head” errors but never that it does not recognize the tape. Could this be the same problem? I own a GL1 and love it.
