Question about Canon GL2 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
I am recording live music where stage lighting has a faint flicker. I assume they are fluorescent.
I followed my GL2 instructions to take the exposure out of auto, and either use it in Manual or Shutter priority.
However, when I enter the menu to select the proper frequency, the Clearscan function is still not available.
What am I missing to be able to use this feature. Any help would greatly appreciated.

Hi, how long have you had your camcorder? my reason for asking is that i have the same model, and recently had to send it back to Canon who were recalling camcorders with image problems as there were a batch of faulty CCD cards Good luck

yes, I found the manual downloads on Canon's webpage. I wish I could figure out how to transfer my tape videos to a computer. I bought the $50,00 DV-1394 cord and nothing happens--computer doesn't recognize the camera.

Make sure you have the camcorder set to record on the dvd, since you can't go into the 16:9 mode when recording to the memory card- at least that's the way it was on one of my camcorders.
If you already have the dvd selected, you might be experiencing a faulty switch pad or similar problem, in which case the unit will have to be serviced. You can take it into a local camera repair shop, or contact Canon. Here's their support site:
If you're not sure of the menu settings that will allow 16:9 mode, refer to your manual. If you take it into a camera shop, they should be able to assist you if it's just a setting, or verify if there's a different problem.
Good luck, and hope this helps.
