EXTRACT Sky News Chinese Hackers and Baby Buying stories from Andy Portch on Vimeo.

DSLRnewsshooter (Click here) posted an interesting article about using the AG-AF101 and GH2 for reportage work. Definitely worth to read it!

Something else. There are also some unboxing pictures of the Ownuser battery grip for the GH2 at Mobile01 (Click here and then on the green links inside the first post). You can usually find this grips on eBay (Click here to search).

Two more 43rumors readers work with the GH2:
Brian:I wanted to share a promotional video that I shot on a Panasonic GH2 for Anime World Chicago. No hacks or expensive toys. Just my camera, the 20mm pancake lens, and a tripod.  http://vimeo.com/29159618
Seb Farges: “This is the end of the friday morning, here it’s the holidays in France. My daughter is playing and reconstructing her own home. http://vimeo.com/33444906
Objectivo Sevilla: “What a typical Sevillian this Monica! Despite the difficulties of life, if you don’t stop her to do what she wants, this genuine Andalusian never abandons her smile and her good humor. http://vimeo.com/33502906
Travis: “I shot a bunch of video and stills at the regional bouldering competition my son competed at this weekend. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=02r6ArAnvHY

    It’s interesting what Mr. Portch does to compensate for some deficits, e.g., Zacuto finder for the AF-101 and NanoFlash to meet the 50mbit broadcast requirement. Then there’s the other bodies, tripod, slider, lenses galore, sound gear, power considerations, backup equipment, filters, laptop, personal effects, etc., while galavanting in sometimes troubled areas. The article doesn’t say if he has an assistant, but presumably he does. That’s a helluva lotta gear. The footage is stunning and newsworthy.

    I know very little about video, but the Andy Portch article is excellent.

    The reporter also uses an iPad instead of a real laptop.
