Took the GF1 with me (along with the 20mm f/1.7 pancake lens) on some errands with friends to get samples for a review I've got to put together. I figured, given the lack of footage on Vimeo (or most places, really), I ought to post it.
A couple of observations so far...
- The quality of the video is really nice (using AVC Lite...haven't bothered with the Motion JPEG recording mode)
- Autofocus, while surprisingly quick in photo mode, sucks in video mode. It's not always accurate, but the main problem is that it's really slow. And beyond slow, given the form factor of the camera it's not the easiest to focus manually so that option isn't great. Manual lenses probably will work better with video mode, but then you don't have the tiny size of the pancake lens which is a great benefit (for me, anyway).
- Low light is decent, especially for something this small. It does get fairly noisy if there's very little light, which is acceptable, but what's nice is that the noise doesn't look extremely digital. It looks closer to grain, which is appreciated.
- No CMOS wobble that I've noticed.
- Stabilized shooting would be nice, but you need a stabilized lens. The stabilized lens you can buy with this is slow, and I think the slowest you can really afford with the GF1 is f/2.8.
It is a fantastic camera for photos, though. I'm really impressed with the stills.
ANYWAY, I don't know if people are even remotely interested in seeing any specific types of footage or have questions, but if it's not too difficult I'm happy to do that.
