Hi all, thanks in advance for your opinions. I bought two cameras to try them out and then I'll sell one. I'd like your opinions on the two systems. They are quite different and both have positives and negatives.

I bought a Canon Vixia HF100 with a wideangle lense.
HD, 24 & 30 PS, 60i
12x zoom, SD card
small unit easy to transport and pull out at any time.

The downside on this thing is that the focus is done with a button through a menu and it's not that easy to control. Also my PC is not that powerful and it was quite tough to do that three scene edit.

The second camera that I purchased is a Canon GL2. Now this one is funner to use because of all the features on it. It uses MiniDV cassettes and transferring the recorded data is done real time. The cassette is played and the computer captures the data. The positive is that the files are easy to process on my pc.
larger unit, not as easy to transport around, shoot the kids...


I'm honestly pretty torn between the two.
I also have an older Canon ZR40.

thoughts....?
