Here's the good news, my first shots with the new GH1 are not of plants! Couldn't think of a better thing to shoot than my girlfriend's million dollar smile. I just used the kit lens and edited in Sony Vegas Pro 8. Minor color correction. Shot in Smooth video mode 720p.
Here is where I could use some help - Workflow! It seems there is plenty of info out there for a workflow if you're using a Mac, but Sony Vegas is scarce to find. If you know of a good link to a tutorial please share it me.
I am still trying to figure out how to work with the 1080 footage and get it looking nice.
