Panasonic GH2

A short clip filmed using the Panasonic AG-AF100 with Convergence Design nanoFlash and the Panasonic DMC-GH2 cameras. Edited in Premiere Pro CS5.5 and color correction/grading using Red Giant Looks.

Lenses used:
Canon EF 300mm F2.8 IS Prime Lens
Canon EF 100mm F2.8 Macro IS Prime Lens
Canon EF 50mm F1.2 Prime Lens
Lumix 100-300mm F4-F5.6 Lens

I've used the EX mode on the GH2 using both the Canon 300 and the Lumix 100-300 lenses on some of the shots (mostly the birds close-up shots). With both lenses, you really need a tripod if you want to use the EX mode with their maximum zoom level, otherwise, the footage becomes very shaky.

I've also used an ProDAD Mercalli 2.0 image stabilizer on a couple of shots (it's a great software). Also used NeatVideo software on some of the shots to reduce noise (also a great piece of software, actually the best noise reduction plugin for video period).

I'm also working on a low-light clip using both cameras that I will be posting in the near future.

I'm really impressed by both cameras, but really more impressed by the GH2 because for such a small camera with its DSLR-like form factor and with a Micro 4/3rd sensor, it produces amazing video quality, very much close to the AG-AF100 which costs 4-times more. However, the AG-AF100 has features that are more tailored for professionals and the video quality is also amazing, but this is what you expect from a $5K professional camera.

More to come. Comments are very much welcome.

Thank you...
