      Comments about Fusion DVD: The Ultimate Guide to the Canon GL2:

      I thought the DVD was well done. The narrative was excellent and each of the GL-2 camera functions were explained as they relate to the camera. The DVD did clear up a lot of the gray areas that the manual failed to provide. However, what I would liked to have seen, and this prevented me from awarding the 5th. star, were practical applications or examples of use after each of the various camera functions were described. I'm a visual learner and this would have given me a better grasp of the materal.

        Comments about Fusion DVD: The Ultimate Guide to the Canon GL2:

        This review will start with the cons simply because they are few in number and I have always liked to finish on a positive note.The DVD that I received had a number of tiny scratches on the video side. Disconcerting, but they did not affect the video quality. [...] Also, I thought that I was going to break the dvd getting it out of the case. I have since replaced that case with a less grippy one. The sound recording was very low. So low that I had to double the volume on my tv to actually hear the video. Also, it is very obvious that Greg Salman is not a professional speaker. So much for the cons.Greg may not be a professional speaker, but he knows his way around the GL2. His constant "umms" and "ahhhss" are a distraction, but his easy familiarity with the GL2 engenders trust in his tour. You get the feeling that he really is a professional cameraman with this equipment and as a consequence, you can believe whatever he has to say. This is not an infomercial for Canon, but he really seems to like using Canon equipment. His tour, while brisk, was comprehensive. I was comfortable using my GL2 before I was finished viewing the dvd, but making the Great Blockbuster Movie will probably have to wait a few more weeks.All in all, this DVD is a must have if you have or are thinking of getting the Canon GL2.

        Comments about Fusion DVD: The Ultimate Guide to the Canon GL2:

        An absolute waste of money. The explanations are ponderous. All of the information contained in the DVD could have been quickly covered in the first few minutes. The DVD would be more useful with tips on how to use the camera in the field. Instead the presenter rambles on about the functions without providing anything useful. It's almost as if someone put a camera on a tripod and turned it on. Atrocious!
