Panasonic G6 vs GH2 video test!

Recommended Posts

Well i got the GH3 yesterday. I love it. :)

 

BTW, In Australia the pricing of the G6 body is around $850, I picked up the GH3 from a local store with full warranty for $1200. It's not double.

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????

Bought my G6 in the UK and it isn't PAL / NTSC switchable, but it does have 24p and 25p.

 

You can't get 60p on it. 50p and 50i.

 

Which do you prefer more for video GH3/G6 and why?

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 .

      The camera is in excellent condition without any marks. It comes in its original box with all original accessories including battery, charger, sync cable, strap, manual, etc. The 8Sinn cage is wonderful- it fits the camera like a glove and gives it plenty of mounting points for accessories. Price includes insured shipping to anywhere in continental U.S. via USPS Priority Mail.
