GH1 vs Canon 500d T1i

It is time for a small comparison between the two competitor. The Panasonic GH1 and Canon 5ooT1i /500D

Pansonic GH1 Canon 500d
12 MP 15 MP
1.500$ with 14-140 kit lens 900$ with 18-55 kit lens
3.0″ TFT LCD monitor 460,000 dots 3.0″ VGA screen 920,000 dots (NO swifel)
23-Area-Focusing/1 Area Focusing (inc. Face Detection) 9 Point AF (inc. Face Detection for AF)
video mode (1920 x 1080 24p and 720 60p/30p) video mode (1920 x 1080 20p and 720 30p)
Sensitivity (100-3200 ISO) Sensitivity (100-3200 ISO expandable to 12.800)

What surprised me a lot is to see that Canon choose a 20fps in 1080 format. it is a nonsense format because it doesn’t come to the  standard minimum which is 24p. You will see a lot of flickering in recorded videos.

If the sensor is the same as the Canon 50d expect a little worser image quality compared to the Canon 40d. For the rest nothing has changed. The same “old” autofocus and boring camera chassis and design. Not a big deal for me.
