Re: It's my birthday, GH2 or software ?

Well, a few more hours playing and I have a couple of comparisons between the 7D and the G2.

The 7D has more extensive and better laid out menu's' IMO

Assignable buttons are about the same but the 7D does not have a touch screen or as many manual controls as the GH2.

Now for the biggest difference so far. The autofocus on the GH2 is light years ahead of the 7D. The speed, accuracy and configuration is just amazing.
Note that for stills, the 7D is not bad but autofocus for video is flat unusable.

Congrats Don.

As you now know, the GH2 produces stunning footage.
When you can, buy the 20mm f1.7. Simply an amazing and light combo.

I have video cams 6X the cost that fall short of this little camera...
I bought another GH2 right after buying my first.

I'm using the hack on one and it's quite amazing.

I'm liking it more all the time Steven. It won't replace my Camcorders but it sure is a welcome companion to them.

One downside is customer support. It is the worst I've ever dealt with and that's saying a lot.

I couldn't figure out how to set the frame rate. I called CS and still don't know the answer. We finially figured I set it as a percentage but they couldn't tell me a percentage of what. I need to just take a few video's, then see what the specs are.

What patch are you using with the hack?
