Unlike Canon’s XL1S, whose low-light performance faltered in our tests, the GL2 is every bit as good as the VX under low-light conditions, producing noise-free blacks and handling candlelight with aplomb. This is menu-selectable and electronically squeezes the image being recorded to tape. Its advanced feature set allows users to handle even the most challenging tasks with confidence and ease. If you want to get a cinematic film-look, this camera is NOT for you! After fighting with it for hours I still can’t seem to get a decent filmlook.
