DMC-GH1 Dedicated Forum
 
I think this camera has the potential to be at least as big as the 5D Mk II and thus a dedicated forum would make sense.

Bill Koehler March 5th, 2009 03:54 PM

I don't disagree, but it could make sense to wait until after the camera is shipping and people have real test/demo footage to post.
Part of the reason the Canon 5D2 made such a splash was the excellent demo footage that was out there BEFORE the final production camera shipped (Vincent LeForet's Reverie).

All I have seen from the DMC-GH1 have been very short microclips.
So right now I would say we are running mostly on a boatload of anticipation and hope.
Just my 2 cents.

Is there pricing on the GH1 yet?

Jose A. Garcia March 5th, 2009 07:08 PM

I also agree with Bill. On paper this is probably my next photo/video cam and I just can't wait to see more of it but we'll have to wait and see if it's really a 5D killer or something along the lines of a 5D or even a complete disappointment for everyone who wants to use it for video.

If it turns out to be a camera that shoots high quality shallow DOF 1080p24 video without noticeable rolling shutter or row skipping artifacts I'm pretty sure it'll have its own forum as soon as the first tests are shown.

Do we know if it will have auto focus for video? I'm really having issues with my D90. I was hoping by now Nikon would have released a firmware update to address some of its many problems.

“The imminent arrival of the DMC-GH1 had been widely expected in the run-up to PMA 2009 (though its name hadn't - many were expecting a 'G1-HD'). Now that the camera has finally shown up it does, as expected, resemble little more than a DMC-G1 with various extra bits and pieces added on, all in support of its hotly-anticipated HD video functionality. But unlike recent DSLRs that have offered video capability, the GH1 is capable of continuous autofocus in movie mode using its purpose-designed contrast-detect AF system, and Panasonic has supported this with the all-new, specially optimized Lumix G Vario HD 14-140mm F4.0-5.8 lens; this should make it a far more usable option for users looking for a fully functional stills/video hybrid.”

Yes. Read this.

It looks like there is a 25fps option for PAL creatures. Something that Canon totally refused to accept or implement.
Also seems to have full manual control.
Wow! Let's wait for pricing and release dates.

Jack Zhang March 7th, 2009 04:13 AM

I'm a little weary of the bitrate that's gonna be used.

Chris Hurd March 7th, 2009 06:07 PM

No reason not to dedicate a forum to the GH1; it's just a matter of how best to re-organize the forum index page (it's a little too long as it is).

I've seen a lot about the autofocus in video mode (it has it) but nothing about whether you can manual focus or lock the autofocus while shooting video. Is that a lens function or camera function?

Well - if it gives an uncompressed HDMI image output I'm happy..

Jose A. Garcia March 8th, 2009 10:32 AM

I haven't seen HDMI out in the specs but if it happens to have it, then it's the perfect camera.

I haven't seen Panasonics spec's for the DMC-GH1 either.
Panasonic does have a spec. sheet for the DMC-G1 and it mentions having a miniHDMI port.
See here:

DMC-G1K - Lumix Digital Cameras - Shop and Compare at Panasonic

I would be stunned for the G1 to have HDMI, but the GH1 not to.
