Panasonic GH2 raw MTS footage now available for download (via EosHD)
Andrew Reid from EosHD just posted a new GH2 video you can download here: http://www.vimeo.com/15410936. It’s shot in 1080/50i and taken with a [shoplink 16254]Panasonic GH2[/shoplink] prototype present at Photokina. Andrew also discovered some more iteresting things: “On the final day there I spotted a few more GH2 features. It now has an option in the menu for Continuous Preview which gives a what-you-see-is-what-you-get live view display in manual stills mode without having to switch to movie mode. A feature I wanted, and it seemed Panasonic realised was lacking on the GH1. Manual audio control allows us to adjust levels, which can only be a good thing – I also noticed that sound from the onboard mic seems much improved.Also Panasonic’s new press release confirms the presence of live HDMI out, simultaneously whilst recording video. It even goes as far as mentioning that this is for professional monitoring on sets. It does seem that they really are listening quite well to us filmmakers! I doubt it is an uncompressed output like on the AF100 with it’s HD-SDI output but I do know for what it’s worth that the GH2 has much improved HDMI output quality all round, without the same loss of fidelity and colour that the GH1’s had. The HDMI spec is now at V1.4 to support 3D as well.“
Meanwhile one for our readers (Joe) found that GH2 image samples on Flickr (Click here).
Request to our european readers. Is there any European store having the GH2 available for preorder? I only found it at Amazon UK and Amazon France :(
