Two days after I hacked my GH2, I was a guest at the Video-DSLR-Workshop in Cologne. The workshop was great! Many thanks to Philip Bloom, Nino Leitner and Sebastian Wiegärtner for telling all the secrets. It was perfect. :-)
I used the night in the hotel, the workshop and the dinner afterwards for shooting in extremely difficult light conditions. During the workshop I had no tripod. That's why it's a little bit "shaky". I turned the camera up to ISO 3.200 sometimes. It still looks well with the hack. And I only pumped the AVCHD in Cinema Mode 24p up to 42 Mbps.
