I prefer the Canon GL2 for video — it takes still pictures as well, but they look awful. For the modest price, though, the video it shoots is surprisingly clean. Unfortunately, unlike it’s more-expensive brother, the XL2, the lens is not swappable, but the one it comes with is quite good.
It’s curious that you mention that, because I look at some of the pictures I take with any of the formats we discussed and sometimes I think the photo doesn’t look quite right. I have professional photos of my son that just don’t look like him. Video doesn’t have that problem. I wonder if this is some kind of psycho-perception thing because video adds motion and false depth because of being able to see the subject move and from different perspectives?
