GH2: Best hack optimisation to match GH3?


luminescence

Recommended Posts

Hi folks,

            I have a bit of a dilemma about buying the GH3. Money is not the issue, its about portability with extensive traveling and going into remote places, being on planes alot etc. I have done a lot of review reading on the GH3 and as usual, with all the fast evolving technology, its a very seductive option.

 

But I ask myself, do I really need an extra half brick to lug around with me, especially when by the time I master the camera, the GH6 or something else will be released. (Or a hybrid GH3 - GX7 would be amazing.)
I could sell the GH2 of course, but that is not the issue. I like the GH2's smaller size and weight. So I guess this question may have been asked before, but I cannot find the specifics on this forum. What would users recommend for,

1. The most optimised hack for a GH2 that has the best Mbps (88?), that comes closest to the GH3?
2. The best hack for slow motion?
3. The best hack for timelapse?
4. The best hack that contains all these criteria?
5. How many memory cards (and what sizes) to hold all these - about 3?

I am nowhere near as experienced as many members here. I have read up on all the various hacks around but have not tried most of them, so I really need to cut to the chase and not waste too  much time. Thanks in advance for taking the time to read and respond!

      Hi Guys, anyone here has shot timelapse with GH5s? Lately, I had a project shooting timelapse with it... and had some issues.
      The first problem, intermittently... the camera will stop shooting and came out a dialogue box that asked me to turn off and on the camera. After reboot the camera, the camera will continue shooting the timelapse in the same sequence... but the problem will come again couple of times in random. The interval of my timelapse is around 5sec per frame.
      second, my setup was 5sec interval.... set at aperture priority, Lumix 7-14mm... shooting day to night timelapse... when the shutter hit more than a second... sometimes it opened not not closing back... and cause the camera to jam and keep recording... hanged and not responding.. had to take out the camera battery to reactivate the camera.
      third issue... when rendering the timelapse into 4k video, it splitted into few different video files... probably cause by the camera stopped or hanged half way... but the camera didn’t indicate it stop the timelapse sequence... it just says ‘pause’....
      Any thoughts or sharing would be much appreciated.
      thanks, Eric.

      I shot this promotional video for the annual Tango Festival here in New Orleans.
      Shot with c100II and GH5, I really wanted to test out the improvements in the lowlight capabilities with the GH5 over shooting last years festival with the GH4, I was impressed!

      So I am about to purchase Canon's C100 Mark II.  just a question about the slow motion options on the camera.
      I want to make a clip that shoots in slow motion but while recording at 60 Fps i want to transition back to normal velocity while recording is it possible to do this? without any type of Atomos Ninja device? I don't want to have to go into video editing either to do it because it can diminish the quality of the slow motion and the transitioning.

      This video was recorded close to Shirokovskaya hydrostation (Russia, Perm region). 
      The hydrostation was built mostly by German prisoners of war during the world war second years.
      Video shows satellites motion, Perseids star stream and the Milky Way. Almost 2000 frames were made for 8 recording hours.
      Camera:
      Panasonic Lumix DMC-G7
      Lens:
      Panasonic 14-140mm f/4.0-5.8
      Samyang 8mm f/3.5 Canon EF (Zhongyi Lens Turbo adapter EF-m43)
      Samyang 24mm f/1.4 Canon EF (Zhongyi Lens Turbo adapter EF-m43)
