The hack of the Panasonic GH2 camera has gotten a lot of attention and some people are pulling their hair out to test and optimize the hack settings. So far I’d say the results haven’t been mindblowing. Here’s a more interesting test of footage with anamorphic lenses. from the Vimeo description: Here’s a side by side test for the two new GH2 Hacks : . Using VGA mode for higher resolutions. . Recording 42 Mb (or more) footage in 24p mode Now we can use VGA(4:3) mode for 1920 x 720 resolution so we get a 2.66:1 image and it captures a wider image than the 16:9 Also 4:3 images have a little more contrast but unfortunately VGA mode can only record 30 fps and MJPEG where as 16:9 24p AVCHD has still better image quality especially in low light. The best part you don’t have to do resizing or “interpret footage” in post, it comes ready to use :) Thanks to vitaliy (personal-view.com) for the great job and eoshd.com for related posts. Simple color correction done in Premiere. Music : Jon Hassell More to come soon… Seems like a good thing that for everybody who sets his money on this camera that Panasonic will introduce new high end lenses. via cinescopophiliaRead more
