Provided the price isn't ridiculous this is my next camera.

24p to 60i

"*Full-HD (1920 × 1080) movies are output by the image sensor at 24p (NTSC)/25p (PAL), and recorded at 60i (NTSC)/50i (PAL). HD (1280 × 720) movies are output and recorded by the image sensor at 60p (NTSC)/50p (PAL)."(from press release)
Sorry for the newbie question, but what exactly does this mean in terms of editing?

I might be wrong but it sounds like you will have to do the lame pulldown conversion to get 24P.
BTW , Hey Bert it's Lucasberg from Vimeo.

from the Panasonic site

**Shooting conditions: 23°C with 50% humidity; LCD on; using a Panasonic SD Memory Card (512MB); Using the supplied battery; Using the supplied lens; Starting recording 30 seconds after the camera is turned on (When the optical image stabilizer is set to [Mode1]) ; Recording once every 30 seconds with full flash every second recording; Turn the camera off every 10 recordings.The number of recordable pictures decreases in Auto Power LCD mode or Power LCD mode.CIPA is an abbreviation of “Camera & Imaging Products Association”.

Does this mean it has the same sensor overheating issue as the d90 and 5d ?

It still looks like it will be the DSLR to beat. AVCHD is a great recording format!

It is the DSLR to beat. Even though it has pulldown with the 24p the videos look nice (from what I've seen so far). 17Mbps AVCHD. The 60p is real 60p. The sensor is a little bigger than the D90. You have manual control of the shutter and aperture. I like this cam.

Hands-on with the Lumix HD-enabled DMC-GH1 (Four Thirds User)
“Internally, the GH1 differs from the G1 in having an improved LiveMOS Four Thirds sensor. Panasonic has improved low light sensitivity to improve high ISO performance. Heat management of the sensor has been modified to enable continuous shooting, without interruption, for as long as the user needs.”

The 5D MkII is still king - but at a price. The FF35 sensor and 42mbps MPEG-4 codec are sweet. Hopefully, they will give us manual control (you can work around it), and 24/25p.

BTW, the D90 has a slightly larger sensor than the GH1. APS-C sensors are about 2/3rds that of a FF35 sensor. Micro 4/3rds is half the size of FF35.

I believe Panasonic is the only one releasing new DSLRs (and Olympus, I think) at PMA 2009. Nikon only intro'd a lens, same with Canon. I heard Sony wasn't as focused on their DSLRs.

One key thing I have been thinking about though is how much I rely on flip LCDs. This panasonic has it, while the 5D and D90 do not. I'm still waiting for this game to play out. Between Red, Canon, and now Panasonic, this year is bleeding edge for purchasing. I've been preferring to rent. Now let's see some raw footage from the DMC-GH1! :)

Shooting video on a DSLR seems like shooting stills on a pro video camera--adequate, but not ideal. I guess RED aims to solve that with their new systems.

Is it confirmed to shoot 1080p using the full sensor? If so, does it use the same row skipping technique used in the 5D?

What sort of shutter? Rolling or "normal?"

Def interesting... perhaps this will force Canon's hand a bit.
