I finally a GH2, and even that Santa brought me a f:0,95 Voigtländer 25mm in !!! I had not had time since the return of Osaka to test for real GH2, it's done. Party at Etretat in the company of a team to match Camera ARRI Alexa / Red One MX, I took with me my precious.
What a treat, this evolution of GH1 is a real success. My first contact with the pre-production model was already exciting but the model series confirms my feeling my first.
Aside from this ABERant choice 1080i50 which deprives us of a 1080p25 Mode, but I am hopeful, the right people are contacted Panasonic and the information is already asleep and rise to Japan.
1080p24 mode is a pure marvel, I am totally amazed by the quality of the images produced, less than 1500 euros is a diabolical camcorder coupled with a copy camera. The value for money is simply amazing. Brief, you'll understand, I am charmed by the GH2 !
I put a damper on the general enthousiasm about the fashion crop 1:1 which seems to me really noisy and loses latitude. I will continue to grumble against the fact that Panasonic has changed format battery, I do what my 6 batteries GH1 / GF1 ? of schoolchildren ?
Otherwise I liked in particular
- The improved viewfinder.
- The convenient touch screen to instantly point or desired.
- The speed of the AF really improved with Surtour 14/140
- The overall look of the video image
- The compression quality AVCHD 24MB in 24p (why not offer other modes ?)
This is not true Making Of this shoot to be directed by Olivier Heraud to whom I lent my 5D for this shoot.
I even made a small comparison test on the latitude with the 5D mkII but I will tell you later in the meantime here is the video I made for this shoot.
100% images are shot in GH2, no color correction, editing in Final Cut 7 in ProRes LT, encodage et dans comrpessor just.
