The new GH2 hack is in its very early stages but has a helluva cool feature for anamorphic shooting. I thought I’d try it out.

One of Vitaliy’s initial patches puts MJPEG video into a 4:3 aspect ratio, the same as 35mm film.

I can then use a 2x anamorphic lens to convert that to lovely 2.66:1 cinemascope rather than the ‘too wide’ 3.55:1 you get from normal 16:9!
