First test run with the most recent (as of mid December 2012) driftwood settings: Cluster v7 'Apocalypse Now - Nebula '6 GOP Settings. This is footage straight from the GH2 with exception for that second shot of me walking through the smoke. I threw on a warm spotlight effect in FCPX just to see what it would look like.
GH2 with kit 14-140mm 4-5.8, SLR Magic HyperPrime 12mm 1.6. HBR. I took multiple shots throughout the 14-140mm range and took shots with the EX Tele Conv with both lenses.
The night shots at the end are with the kit lens.
Things I learned: I was using the 14-140mm lens with AFS, using the touch screen to select focal points. This is how I changed focus in multiple shots (very first shot, water reflection on the barrel, hanging string and the "Butterfly" box, cat and the grass, ect). When in AFS the lowest Shutter Speed it would allow me to go to was 30. As soon as I switched to MF* I was able to adjust to whatever I wanted. I DIDN"T KNOW this so I was pleasantly surprised. Until this discovery I was constantly fiddling between the ISO and WB, and with the SLR Magic lens, the aperture as well. I think the first shot of the ceiling is when I discovered this. It's shot in MF, not AFS. I THINK.
Sound was recorded with Rode shotgun mic. (The bigger older one)

*When I switched IT WAS DURING RECORDING and my camera froze. I had to pop out the battery, reinsert, and start up again. No prob.

Hmm…it looks like things are taking a while to load. Try again?
