Pana what you see is what you get hack?

I´ve been toying with the idea of getting a GH camera to do some video work but one thing that has always bothered me was the fact that when you look at the lcd you don´t see the actual final footage you´re shooting, you have to guide your self via panasonic´s graphic exposure values. Is there a hack to change this? I mean, when I close the lenss´diaphram I want to see the image getting darker, I don´t want to see minus 1 or whatever. On a regular camcorder what you see on the lcd is what you get, and that is what I want from the GH series. Is this possible via hack?

You might want to wait a bit and see what the soon to be released Olympus OMD E-M5 looks like. Google for it by name and take a look at what early testers are doing with stills. It may very well be that what you want will be in that camera without need to "hack" it.

I've seen no video done with it yet, but high ISO stills shown are most impressive. Video performance on the later Olympus Pen series looks pretty good so I don't see them failing to include good performance in the new OMD.

I've had the "seeing what you get" on the Canon 7D, T2i, T3i, and 60D LCD's (you do have to use a viewfinder loupe to properly evaluate exposure on these models especially in outdoor daylight) so I know what you mean. And I also have that in manual video mode on an early Olympus Pen e-PL1. I can "setup" what I want in an accessory EVF viewfinder on that little camera so I don't see it not existing in the new OMD.

Only rumors so far, but a Panasonic GH3 should have strong enhancements over the GH2, it will have to if it's going to be going "head to head" against the claimed performance of the OMD.
