This is a 3 minute experiment; a first pass at learning to do slow motion on the GH2. Filmed mostly hand held in the late afternoon-evening using a very slow Olympus 9-18 f/4-5.6 at high ISO's... on the North Fork of the Saline River in the Ouachita National Forest of Arkansas (USA).

Considering how dark it was, late in the afternoon and early evening, the quality is better than I expected. The high ISO's turned out to be a problem in combination with NR, which was set to default. For the slow motion, it was shot at 720p 60fps, then conformed to 23.976fps and slowed to 66% in Premiere.

The great music is by Chris Zabriskie, who very generously lets us use his music under a Creative Commons license. Thanks Chris.

Any advice on how to get improved slow-motion (or good slow-motion in 1080p) on the GH2 would be appreciated.
