The GM1 is so handy. Its the camera that is always with me in my bag.


My latest GM1 video. Very basic stuff. Loaded into FCPX and some simple levels adjustments and thats about it.


Oh and standard kit lens with no tripod etc.

@nac Truly beautiful picture quality! I can't believe you captured this using the kit lens... Could you share your picture profile settings (sharpness, contrast, etc.)? Also, did you use any ND filters? Oh, and what f/stops were you shooting at? Thanks for sharing.

I am now seriously looking at selling my GH3, its just not getting used. I am finding that the quality from the GM1 is good enough for my needs.


My profile is standard 0,0,0,-5.

I did previously try lowering sharpness and contrast as others have done but in my tests I didn't really see any advantage. Leaving it all at 0 means less work in FCPX.


No ND filters used. So in the sun I would have raised the shutter speed up to 100 or 200, and also moved the aperture up pretty high too.

At the end of the day the iso would have been 3200, shutter 50 and aperture low.


Oh and no noise reduction was added such as Neat. With the GH3 or GH2 the last scenes would have been very noisy, but the GM1 is very clean.
