Very nice.

Question: which specific mode was used for this video? 1080p or 720p?

1080 24p non native AVCHD

Hi Paul, thanks!
We used a hacked Lumix GH1 at 1080 24p non native AVCHD.
Did the pulldown with Neo4K (Cineform), color correction with Firstlight (also Cineform) and the post with Premiero Pro2.

did you experience any bugs with the hack? I hear reports of vertical streaking and other issues. Your video looks GREAT.

No bugs at all!

Thanks Amos.
No vertical streaking, no crashes, no freezes... the hack just worked!
I even used some class 6 cards along with the Trascend class 10, and still no problems. I am guessing that the Zeiss´ low contrast and the shallow dof contributed to low detail scenes, so lower data rate.

Much appreciate the additional info! So, non-native 24p @1080. Outstanding!
