Land’s End – The Gingshang 600 – A GH1 Short

https://vimeo.com/10949526

Thought I’d do a Bob Dylan video!

Philip Bloom recently shot a short near the coast with the latest Panasonic broadcast camera – the HPX370. To see how the humble GH1 compares on a similar shoot I went along to see the north coast of Taiwan at Gingshang taking along my GH1 and simply the kit lens.

Video interview with EOSHD.com’s Andrew Reid

As mentioned in a recent blog I stopped by DCView‘s HQ here in Taiwan last week to share some thoughts on HDSLRs for people new to video.

This video interview is about the basics of using HDSLRs but I managed to fit in a bit about the Zacuto Z-Finder!

Very pleased with the way it turned out, it’s the first time I’ve done something like this but it wasn’t a disaster!

Thanks to Katrine, Ivan and Benson at DCView

EOSHD Shootout Part 1 – 5D versus GH1 in Low Light

https://vimeo.com/10657409

If possible please watch the test footage on a proper display via DVI or HDMI, not a laptop screen. It makes a HUGE difference in perception.

The results of EOSHD’s low light shootout between the mighty Canon 5D Mark II and the Panasonic GH1 are in! This is a real-life natural light test, this is what happens when you take out the cameras and shoot. There are no test charts. No technical waffle in the video (I left it for this article!). But I have selected the shots quite carefully to show a range of typical low light challenges.

I’ve also made sure that on-camera picture profiles are taken into account. They’re set quite neutral and to match the other camera as much as possible. I also included shots which compare different picture profiles and settings so you can get an idea of their effect on the camera’s footage relative to one-another.
