Re: gh2 noob HELP

Here's where you get the hack etc:

Hacks News and Development

As far as a tripod, the Manfrotto 190PROB is a good one. I have two of the earlier model of this and they just don't quit. All my supports are Manfrotto though and try as I might, I haven't killed one yet. I also bought all mine as "mint used" and saved a bit of cash that way.

As far as a lens, that all depends on your wallet and expected usage. Being that you are a complete GH2 noob, I would suggest starting with a Lumix lens to get all the in camera voodoo that Panny has going on with them. When I came back to my GHs from a stint trying to learn to speak Nikon, I went almost 100% pure Lumix and have been very happy with my decision.

You might find that here as well:

There are pages upon pages of info there including one whole section on the GH2 hacks. Lots of reading and searching, but something should be there for you.
