Matching GH2 and HVX: some results

Used the GH2 with my trusty old HVX on a paid shoot yesterday, thought I'd report some results.

I needed good, monitorable audio recording, and the client also requested occasional closeups of the subject. What better way than doing it two-camera?

Chose the GH2 for the wider shot and HVX for closeup, to allow for blurred background in both shots.

Location was lit with tungsten, both cameras set to 3200K WB.

HVX settings: "GH2 HT"
720p30N (client request), 180d shutter, ~35mm (~250 effective), f2.8
detail: -4
v detail: -2
detail coring: +4
hroma lvl: 0
chroma phase: 0
color temp: 0
master ped: +5
gamma: cinelike V
matrix: norm
STD: off

GH2 settings:
FSH mode, SS=60, ISO=320
Leica Summicron-R 50/2, f2.8
Custom Film Mode, -2, -2, -2, -2

Untouched stills of the same moment are attached. Overall, I'm liking the match, even if I'm not overly pleased with my framing and location lighting.

Re: Matching GH2 and HVX: some results

They match beautifully! Congratulations. I know what you mean about the framing, I often think I have it at the time of the shoot, and when I review I am amazed at how off I was, and how a small adjustment was all that was needed.

Yours looks fine, and I'm finding I often end up at 3200K for white balance myself, kind of funny you should say that is what you were using.
