I am looking for a camcorder to film youth events. It needs to be compatible with FCE HD. I was looking at the Canon gl2, but it doesn't film 16:9. At least I didn't see anything that said it did, so someone please inform me if it does. I was also looking at the Sony HDR-FX1. Those have been the only two that I was really interested in, but I would like some imput from people that know more about it than me. I'm fairly new at this. I would be upgrading from a Canon Elura 100. Hi Def is not necessary, but would be nice. Also, size matters so noting over the shoulder. I also don't want one that is fully manual. Thanks for all your input! EDIT: The GL2 does shoot 16:9. Sorry.
