With the newly released GH2 1.11 hack, the small GF2 is now also hackable. This camera also does 1080/25p inside a 1080i wrapper, and features a similar image processing chip and encoder to the GH2. Could it be a bargain GH2 alternative? EOSHD takes a look.

Meanwhile Magic Lantern continues to improve. There’s current a brute force testing approach which according to Alex of Magic Lantern may “unlock many things that previously were thought to be impossible or very hard” like anamorphic preview and clean HDMI out.

This is my first post, and I'm a newbie at DSLR -- former camcorder user.

I've been hearing so much about Panasonic, Sony, Olympus and Canon DSLR cameras that I can think about; yet I've been curious to getting a GF2 and I'm intrigued by the pricing of them that, according to your article, I been contemplating on a better-get-it-while-it's-hot state.

I'm also interested in the PTool hacks.

I don't know what to get, should I get the refurbished or the real deal (be it GF2 or GH2)?

I have bought refurbished in the past, and had no qualms with them.

I just add that to my bying list -- I'll make a decision tomorrow.

Thank you so much for the info, I will wait to try out the patch until it becomes solid -- don't wanna mess up a good thing.
