A video clip filmed with Panasonic's Lumix DMC-GH1 and its 14-140mm kit lens, using its 1080p FHD AVCHD movie mode; the camera was set to the PAL region, so the signal was output from the sensor at 25p and recorded at 50i. I used Program mode and the default settings, and the lens stabilisation was enabled.
This (and the 720p version uploaded earlier) are supposed to demonstrate how the GH1 and kit zoom perform when used like a traditional camcorder - ie handheld with wobbly panning and a zoom of the lens. As you'll see, this style doesn't suit the GH1, especially in its 1080p mode, and while the filming technique here is careless, it does illustrate that the GH1 is not a replacement for a camcorder for many people.
That's not to say it can't take great-looking footage though. Check out my GH1 1080p compilation coming soon, which shows it in a much better light.
Vimeo can't accept the camera's native MTS files, so we used Adobe Media Encoder to convert it to an MP4 file using the same frame size, frame rate and H.264 compression. The conversion was very quick, implying little if any transcoding, but the file size doubled. This could be the process of going between progressive and interlaced, but after much experimenting, this is the closest file I could upload to the original in terms of quality.
Feel free to download the original file and check out the quality on your own computer, although as explained above, the file size is not representative of what you'd get straight from the camera. The original file was half the size.

Meet the VideoMic GO, our new lightweight on-camera microphone for clear, directional audio on the GO!
Do you want to record your songs for Youtube but don't have any audio equipment? We recorded Matt Purcell with the VideoMic GO on a Canon 600D to show that you don't need the latest & greatest equipment to get great audio for your music videos.
Compact and light weight by design, the VideoMic GO delivers clear, crisp, directional audio with incredible ease of use. Its tight pickup area focuses directly in front of the microphone and reduces other surrounding sounds, ensuring that your subject is isolated from distracting background noise.
The integrated Rycote® Lyre® shock mount isolates your microphone from bumps and vibrations that could otherwise interfere with your sound.
Constructed from a single piece of hard-wearing thermoplastic, the Lyre® provides superior acoustic suspension to traditional elastic solutions, and will never wear out, sag or snap.
The VideoMic GO has no complicated switches or settings and is powered by your camera's external microphone input, requiring no batteries to operate, ensuring you never miss a great shot.
