Quick grading test (wetransfer)   GH2 original - G6 original - GH2 curve - G6 curve (same curve).   GH2 @ 1080p24 65Mbps - Smooth -2-2-2-2 G6 @ 1080p24 24Mbps - Natural -5-2-0-5   ISO 160, same

Peaking: works during recording, can turn it on and off during recording, works in magnified view. Auto ISO: works in A or S (and probably P) Changing ISO during recording: works in all modes   All

Panasonic GH2 hacked Moon Trial 5 hack, shot in 1080p HBR mode 25 fps (~ 60Mbps) Standard profile -2-2-2-2 Panasonic 14-42mm kitlens, OIS on.   Looks like there are some dropped frames in the GH2

B&H Photo has the G6 listed without 24p in the specs.  This is puzzling to me.  I called to verify the recording specs and the rep told me that the camera DID NOT shoot 24p.  Can anyone shed some light here?

Edit* Another rep said this is a typo on the website.  Camera is NTSC/PAL switchable.

Will do galenb. Peaking is only available in light blue, didn't find a menu option to change the color. Seems to work fine, like any other camera with peaking. I still experience some hit and miss shots though when using it, but I think that is always the case with peaking. Anyway, I'll show!

 

Also, I'm not sure if it's a world cam. I have a PAL cam with 1080p50,25,24, didn't find a menu option to switch to NTSC 60/30. I believe this is possible with the GH3 or am I mistaken? I don't care for 30 but 60 would be nice for slomo.

 

I bought an NTSC GH3 to shoot a huge sporting and shot everything at 1080p60.. The footage looked great and the camera worked well. However I am in a country that uses PAL but at that time there was nothing that could do slow motion at 1080p60 except the GH3 (and a few Sony's which I am not to fond of) the PAL version wasn't yet available so I bit the bullet and bought it.

 

It's not a global cam though so while it worked brilliantly for the outdoor event I don't have access to a 25p option. I can however shoot at 24p 1/50th and flicker is pretty much completely unnoticeable and non-existent but if you look closely it is present.

 

I do plan on getting a BMPCC though (if it ever comes out..) which IS a global cam I hope that with a hack though the GH3 will also become a global cam. (Does anyone know if the GH2 NTSC cams got some PAL framerate options?) Thanks.

The G6 is a global cam (NTSC/PAL switchable) and the GH3 is not????

I posted this in another thread but for those of you concerned about the lack of live hdmi out while recording there seems to be another option via a cell phone, tablet or laptop utlizing the wifi remote function.  The tablet etc acts as an additional monitor when using the remote application... jump to 07:17 of this video to see it in action .. sorry its in German..

is there a lag or delay with the wifi function on the tablet?

 

As you can see in the video, yes. And although it's less than I expected, it makes it useless for using it as an onboard monitor alternative. Perhaps for remote control on live shows or using the G6 as a crash cam, or maybe for the director.

I think you're wrong Ernesto. I've watched dvd's with more out of sync than that ! My guess it's about 1/4 second delay...or even less....watching the wifi monitor and listening to the audio...and for focus pulling, I see this as having real possibilities , considering there's no live hdmi out .

      Hello everyone,
      Great to see that there is a dedicated lens section on this lovely forum now!

      Ironglass, a Ukraine company, that has been offering cinemodded Russian lenses (such as the Helios 44-2) for a number of years is now offering a completely rehoused version of their lenses. I bought the original cinemods back in 2018 and am now thinking of upgrading. So I am familiar with their optical performance, however I would be interested if anyone here has seen these up close and can speak to their mechanical capacity, i.e. how well the rehouse is done. I've seen a number of announcements around the web from last fall, but no real hands-on reviews.
      I'd be really grateful for anyone experiences on these!
