Just one minor problem I'm having with my GH1.

Everything works in creative movie mode. But in full manual "M" photo mode, when I change aperture or shutter speed, I don't see any changes. Camera settins stay the same. I'm sure it's something I'm doing wrong. But still haven't figured it out.

I have a nasty feeling that you mean that you are trying to change video aperture and shutter settings in the photo modes - which doesn't work. In other than Creative Movie Mode, GH1 video is essentially shot in full auto regardless of settings. The idea seems to be that when you are shooting photos, if you suddenly want to shoot some video, just press the button on the back and the GH1 will set itself appropriately.
