First footage shot and edited with the new GH1.
Actually the first time Iv touched a video cam or NLE in over a year :o

This was shot with the kit lens and a Canon FD 50mm 1.8.
All of the entering, exiting, and inside garage scenes were shot with the Canon. Inside at f1.8 with a follow focus. Yea I know...I probably shouldn't be shooting video at 1.8 but this was practice, and I think I did pretty good.

Outside scenes shot with the kit lens and a .6 ND filter. All shots were "hand held" with my custom rig, aside from the 3 static shots in the beginning + the boat tilt (on a 501 head).

Everything was shot in full manual mode, at 720/60p at 1/60, then dropped into a 24p timeline. This was my first time working with the AVCHD workflow, and I definitely have room to improve. The quality of this video on here is horribly compressed. However, rendered out as HDV and played on my TV or Comp it looks better.

Edited with FCP 6.0.6 on a 2.16 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo Macbook with 4GB RAM (which ran flawlessly with barely any rendering at all).
