Also Hitler complains about the missing 25p for the GH2 (Barry Greens explains why)


Barry Green (DVXuser forum) explains why the Panaosnic didn’t add 25p recording: “I was floored when I asked them where in the world 25p went, and the response I got from one of the Lumix reps from a PAL territory was basically “what are you talking about? It has PAL support, it does 50i!” Because they think they’ve gone beyond that. They offer 50i, 60i, 50p, 60p, and 24p.
It doesn’t help the PAL users who want/need 25p, but … near as I can tell, this is their thinking. They’ve gone and enhanced the camera beyond that stuttery film-look 25p, and added 50i for the “live” video look. And frankly, for the vast majority of their customers, that’s probably true — they will probably prefer that. For PAL users who want 25p, we’re left with either a case of use 720/50p and drop every other frame, or use 1080/24p and speed it up by 4%.

Panasonic GH2 preorders at: Amazon US, BHphoto, Amazon UK, Amazon France.

  • I want to be able to shoot in 16p for an authentic silent-film look, and those ignorant morons at Panasonic are ignoring this vast potential market as well!

    I presume AH would be filming using Leica Lenses on his mft and would have his GH1 re-badged with the red dot.

    I never cease to be amazed at the decisions large corporations make… you would think with all the reviewers, bloggers, and industry wags they have on beck and call, this could have been prevented. Let’s hope they rectify it before final firmware.

    just do 1080/24p then speed it up by 24% and bring back all the “Benny Hill” goodness to all the footage.

    Fantastic video. I was interested in a GF2 with 25p, but Pani will probably blow that one as well.

    How difficult is it for them to understand that this will be used by creative people, and creative people crave every option they get, including any frame rate from 1 to 60? Creative people also want to edit their footage before they output it, so they couldn’t care less about any direct output-to-TV-specs format.

    Guess Pani will have to fall on their face hard again and again before they come to their senses.

      I think most of us know what the movie is about. And it is a great movie and not funny at all.

      But in case you didn’t know, this particular scene is generally used for parodies in YouTube. Just search for ‘hitler parody’ in YouTube.
