I was told gh2 was better on stuff like that, im still learning the camera well how to get it to look how i want it.
any suggestions for shooting with this camera i have dslr sliders, jibs eos adaptors and more.

needing to get the quality of the gh2 to match or be better then the canons and after bringing the footage back in post im seeing a better image in the canon for a film look.
but i do know how to use the canon better, so I take that into count and just got the mount in so havent done any test that can be compared.

also im introducing myself my name is shawn and im looking forward to talking to you guys

wow realy tough to decypher your sentence
nevertheless here are some quick tips
-use cine preset or standard then...
-transcode with 5DtoRGB for the flat & much cinematic looking settings.
-try using lenses that arent too sharp. panasonic lenses tend to be too sharp.
-read this http://www.campcomet.com (http://www.campcomet.com/archives/836) some of kholi's GH2 blog.

more guys can chime in on ISO noise stuff & hacking bitrate

GH2 on top; Canon 60D below.
EOSHD comparision test:

Is it possible you have your images confused with the Canon?

Yeah, I think you might be looking at canon footage when you're seeing the moire.

You mean moire like this? Notice the grey tie.

This is one of the few times I have noticed any colour moire from my GH1. I sometimes see some aliasing on high-contrast white edges, but the AF100 does the very same.
Of course, using softer lenses can help to reduce aliasing, but just go with what works for you. If you're using all Lumix lenses, then try a different lens with an adapter and show us the test results.
But don't get hung up on what looks more "film-like." Each person's impression of that is unique. If you want film, shoot on film.
