Philip Bloom gets his mitts on a GH1 in Austin, TX

At today's private Re:Frame Austin event, Phil Bloom snaps his fingers twice, instantly conjuring a red GH1. See attached photos.

Chris Hurd has said on camera he will be giving 3 5dmk2 cameras to every attendee of ReFrame:Austin as well as an A1 and XLH1. Very generous folks Canon.

I am hoping to do some shots with it later if I can get my head around the settings...

Love the tilt-able LCD screen that switches off when your eye goes to the VF

Love manual controls and ability to press focus button whilst rolling and it focuses...

Didn't say it was *me* giving them all away... my understanding is that they're handed out in gift bags which are left in everyone's room at the Omni. If you didn't get yours, give Canon a ring straight away.

Gotta say, that is a pretty nifty feature, and it really works. I was able to wrestle the GH1 away from Phil momentarily, and as I brought it up to eye level, the screen did indeed switch off and the smaller LCD in the eyecup activated itself. I wasn't able to suss out any more features and details as I was threatened with physical violence if I didn't return the camera immediately (well, that and the battery needed charging).

Sweet! So is this a European version? With other than Japanese text? And PAL?

I guess we can expect a nice video soon, like the one the made for the 5DII;)

Lucky you... :)

Looking forward to seeing something more from the camera, maybe I will then be able to stop checking GH1 threads like a obsessed madman!

Phil, do you have a UK/EU model? If so I'm really interested in what the frame rate options really are for us PAL users. Do you intend on shooting under artificial light while your there? I'm planning on using this camera in the U.S, this summer, so really keen to see how it works for you.

i will try and get some footage up tonight. I may be a bit drunk though as we are going to a billiards bar, Chris, welcome to join!! We have just been out on a massive camera orgy of about 50 of us filming each other with everything from my Lumix to 16mm cameras on glidecams. Been very funny.

My footage wont be the usual static beauty shots but lots of handheld actuality. Very impressed with the auto focus on it actually too. But the manual controls are killer and there is NO skew...

Need another battery really!

Hey Phil,

Just wondering - how did you get your hands on a GH1 so quickly? I'm in the UK and I'd LOVE to get my mits on a GH1 by mid-May for an upcoming shoot that would be perfect for the GH1.

Thanks loads,
Jack

Can you post the english pdf manual somewhere ? (rapidshare/megaupload..)
I guess your GH1 comes with CD which has such manual ?
So far only the japanese manual is available on panasonic website, not very informative...
Thanks !
