Someone told me and I thin


Someone told me and I think it might be true, that the GL’s and XL Canon models have the same chip set, meaning the picture will look about the same. I would say the biggest con about the GL models is that the sound is terrible and the sound on the XL is better especially since it comes with a stereo shotgun and the sound is fully customizable with levels and balance for up to two mics at a time. The con about the XL however is that it doesn’t have an LCD screen so you have to look through the eye-piece. I purchased an XL 1 off ebay and love it. I use the XL1 for my own stuff and use the GL at my film school. Bottom line both cameras are decent, but I think it depends on what is more important to you, sound or being able to see your footage on a small screen.
