Hello all. I'm looking to purchase my first camcorder. I've narrowed it down to two cameras, the Panasonic DVX100B and the Canon XL2. This is where things get tricky, and this is where you come it. Here are some things to consider;

-24p is important to me
-16:9 is important to me
-I'm interested in the best overall quality.

Do you think you guys could give me a hand? Thanks again :lol:

xl2 has more to offer in that the lens is interchangeable. Both will yield excellent image results. Those who state one is better than the other are only stating their opinion. Like I said, at the end of it all, the xl2 has the edge for image quality, because of the glass you can put on it.
