Finally got to jump the GH2!
It performed almost flawlessly.

Indoor footage: Computar 12.5mm in 1:1 crop mode.
Rest of the footage: 14-42mm kit lens
Skydiving footage: ISO 160, 1/125, f16
24P ‘Smooth’ profile with everything set at -2.

Footage smoothened out with FCP Smoothcam, Color graded with Colorista II.

I was afraid that I would not get enough dynamic range like I was able to get with Canon T2i shot in Super Flat mode, but it performed quite well. Enough details were recorded in the shadows for me to stretch it out during post. Highlights seem to roll off quite nicely, not harsh like typical camcorders.

Cast: Bill Voelker
