Panasonic GH1 banding issue?


There is a long and incredibly interesting thread in the forum where people analyze the video quality of the Panasonic GH1. It seems the camera has a blue channel banding issue. I hope Panasonic can fix it soon.

UPDATE: It seems the same effect is present in the red channel.
UPDATE2: You can download a video sample from the GH1 from here:
You can read the forum post at

UPDATE3: More videos for dowload avaiable here:


A little bit of all…

Share have released a high-ISO comparison between the Canon EOS Rebel T1i vs. Nikon D5000 vs. Olympus E-620 . It’s unlikely that there  an Olympus E-series camera will feature video soon but just for fun you can take a look at this video showing the Zacuto.

And lastly we wish all the best to which turns one year old today! Happy Birthday!




For the next 12 hours the team will take some rest. Time to enjoy sun and family. We wish you a peaceful Saturday!

UPDATE: We invite you to participate in the “One day one photo” action. And please for any questions or wishes write us at
