20 Most Recent Canon GL2 Mini DV Digital Camcorder Questions & Answers


Same thing happened to me. No display, no menu, no S-video output while in camera mode, but in VCR mode all was OK. Turning power off and on did not help until I also disconnected the AC power adapter. BTW, Mr. Riggins did not read the question before he answered.

The selector switch may be out of time. A plastic gear may have come loose from the shaft it's mounted to. A thorough inspection is necessary to find the failed part.

Suggestion: Remove the memory chip from the Canon and get a reader that plugs directly into your USB port on the vaio. Available online or at any computer shop or big box store. You should be able to open the photos directly from the chip. They'll be in a DCIM folder - you may have to easter-egg around a bit, or search for *.jpg

Lots faster and less frustrating than the camera's software interface.

This information will be in the camcorder manual. If you have no manual, you can download a manual for almost any equipment by Googling the make and model followed by the word Manual, then follow the appropriate link(s).

Do you mean distortion from shooting at wider angles? If you, you'll either need to do it when you import the video into your editing program or not use such a wide angle in your shots.

Are you using the proper Firewire cable to connect? Also, the GL2 has had issue with the Firewire port going bad. Try a different cable and see if that helps. It can't be a USB-Firewire cable either.

You cannot do any corrections. The video tracking signal is set. The best that you could do is use editing software to try and crop it.
