Canon GL2 blues

Since I just did one work story why not follow it up with another. This week several Canon GL2 video cameras came in. They are quite simply amazing video cameras. Everything about them is right, easy to access controls, substantial handles - they look and feel good all around.

My joy over getting to work with these new tools was put on hold today though. It seems the GL2 I opened has a problem. It doesn't believe the tape can be written to. No matter what position the "write protect" slider is in the camera reports the tape cannot be written to. Bummer. Now several cycles will be spent on how to get it repaired.
