Question about Canon GL2 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Dear sir, I have two video cameras Canon GL2 that I use to record the shows in the theater where I volunteer. I shoot from a clamp in the back of the house. My problem is that the director like (I should say love) the dramatic lighting efects and the camera is not to bad for the "Darks", but the "lights" are completely bleaching the faces of the actors unless I zoom in like within a couple of feet from them. I use the camera in automatic. If I switch to "spotlight" The "lights" are OK but then the "darks" are invisible. I do not have time during the shooting to switch from one to the other. What can I do??  Thanks for your time

How would i take away distortion lines that show up in my camera?


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.

My canon gl2 lcd screen and viewfinder black


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.

No DV output from Canon GL2. Using a firewire cable from DV port on camera to firewire port on Mac Pro tower. Attempting to import the camera live to Final Cut Pro. Previously worked just fine.


Was the tape your trying to import recorded on the camera you are trying to import from? I've noticed that sometimes the tape I recorded on my old Panasonic won't show up on my GL2. It's like it's a blank tape, but I know it's not, as I have it labeled. Stick it back into the panasonic and it plays fine.

My canon gl2 is showing a black screen but it will show menus and playback just nothing when i go to record


I think I had that same problem. I had to send it in to have the ribbon cable replaced to the flip out screen. I am trying to find the company I sent it to. Mine needs a tune up again.
I don't think it was cheap but it was cheaper than replacing the camera.
