From what I understand, GH1 records in 1080p24 wrap in 60i. I will also need to buy NeoScene to perform pulldown removal. Then it will be easier to edit with cineform codec.

There is a camera hack out there that will let your GH1 record 24p native and also let you crank up the picture quality. No need for Cineform. Do a google search for GH1 Hack and you will find it.

Here is some info:

Well that's a looong story - out of the box the GH1 will shoot AVCHD:
1920x1080 24p in 60i wrapper
1280x720 60p

1280x720 30p

look on the site to check the specs (it's late)
the date rate is 17Mb/s so it's not fantastic - I love the image and work around the shortcomings.
the codec will break down (shows muddy areas = smudged) if you try a whip pan or shoot outside with lots of trees & grass. there's been lots of discussion on this so read up - I don't think it's a deal breaker but that's just my opinion.

You will find a lot of discussion and way too much noise about a hack for the GH1 & the GF1 - people are now reporting stable data rates of 30 & 40MB/s even close to 100! (a 16GB card last about 3 seconds though!) again read up if you want to follow that path AND make sure you don't get the latest GH1's - Panasonic have changed the firmware to lock out the hack.

I've hacked all my cameras but I'm not suggesting anyone do the same - like life, it's a risk - without the hack it's still a great little camera.

I'm still trying to catch up on my backlog but here's the first stuff I shot with the camera

all GH1

Some HV30, mostly GH1

all GH1
