Nothing I have seen in video mode on any camera can match what the Olympus OM-D E-M5 can do, now even with legacy glass and adapters. It is certainly worth a look for handheld shoots even though the codec sucks and is 30p.
I'm not a huge fan of the OIS on Panasonic lenses for video. Sometimes it jumps and the Lumix lenses are a little bit too clinical looking for my tastes. You are far better off stabilising the camera with a shoulder mounted rig.
I would say the new sony technology, which is about the same as the OM-D, is....pretty much the same, unless it is in fact....the same
I would say in the near future it will be "the norm" for most cameras. As for now Olympus better live it up as the pioneers.
But the Panasonic TM700 and 900 had a pretty good built in IS.
From what I understand the only image stabilization with the GH3 is through the lenses, specifically lenses made by Panasonic.
Assuming this is true, I'm curious how people have fared with the GH3 when using legacy glass and/or non Panasonic lenses in regards to image stabilization.
Just curious what people thought was wise/reasonable in how to maximize a stable image when shooting with the GH3. Obviously a tripod helps but was looking to see if anyone had thoughts on this issue.
ProDad Mercalli works pretty nice, the better the shot, the better it works. If you are shooting an earthquake scene, don't waste your time. If you are shooting just a simple pan shot or can get a decently smooth walking shot it should do just the trick. IMO it works better than warp stabilizer and faster.
