Panasonic GHx & micro4/3 Community

Second session with the GH1. Went down to Abbey Mills near Wimbledon.

Generally okay, starting to get a better feel for what the camera can and can't handle. Still get a bit of 'mud' with busy scenes and high frequency noise (water ripples, leaves, etc).

I think I've detected some duplicate frames in some of the footage, and will investigate further. Obviously shooting at 50fps and only using every second frame for 25fps makes this less of an issue, but could still be annoying. Will try to narrow it down to a root cause.

Uncorrected footage.
