Hi, that was a question from my students...
How to hack gh1 and/or gh2
Thanks to http://personal-view.com/ for the informations. They are working hard to provide us the most efficient bit rate from our dslr.
You wil need a 100% full charged battery and a Sandisk SD class 10 extreme pro (95mb/s) to be sure.
1. download the last firmware from panasonic

GH1 -> http://panasonic.jp/support/global/cs/dsc/download/fts/dl/gh1.html
2. Download Ptools (both for gh1 and gh2)
3. Here, you have to understand that there is a lot of existing presets for both GH1 or GH2. You have to choose the best for your use. Some are made for action movies, others are better for reliability...
