I just got the GH2, and have a couple questions.

1. I have a Rode Videomic, and want to know the best way to monitor audio and adjust levels.
2. I have a Transcend 16 gb class 10 card, is there any hack that this card could support?
3. How do i use continuous autofocus in camera?
4. I shoot with people that are still using 4:3 and 16:9 SD and shooting at 60i, can the GH2 be set for 60i.
5. Do any of the hacks support native cinema aspect ratio in camera?

1. Get a seprate audio recorder like a Zoom H4n if not maybe ger a portable mixer or beach box.

2. Those cards should be good for most hacks except the 176mb intra hack.

3. Just turn the autofoucs switch on.

4. Yes but you may be limited in your bitrate without a hack. 17mbs at the most.

5. 16x9 is the widest format without a anamorphic lens.

Thanks So much, So is there no way to monitor without an external Recorder? I dont have the money for a beachteck right now, it is on my wishlist though. Thanks again!

Also if your doing SD you should just shoot for
Center cut and then just down convert the finished project. That way the project is future proofed with a HD version sitting on a shelf.

You cannot monitor the audio on a GH2. It's the same story with every other HDSLR-type of camera. It's one of the shortcomings of this type of camera.

You can monitor audio by watching screen bars going sideways. And also you put spletter in mic hole and you can still heard the audio. For levels you get 4 choice only in the menu.
