I think you have to set the white point with every start up, pretty happy with my GL2 <BR>cheers <BR>Darrin

oh ya, never use the rewind!!!!! <BR>Canons break real easy..buy a cheap camera <BR>for capture and rewinding. I got a JVC mini dv for $150. with a three year plan from frys.. <BR> <BR>cheers <BR>Darrin
