GL2 – standard def (SD), 3


GL2 – standard def (SD), 3-CCD, great lens, MiniDV tape; HV30 – high def (HDV, actually), 1-chip, GREAT optics, MiniDV tape. And, as CameraMan above notes, GL2 has more easy to access manual control possibilities, including manual audio. But, for the bucks, I was REAL close to going with the HV30 at $600 or less, until Panasonic and JVC released or announced their AVCHD products using SD/SDHC cards.
