    Very interesting Craig. The Chromecast is a great idea but IMO has been severely crippled, particularly with respect to live broadcast media creators. I have been hoping the Chromecast dev would get...

    We use the BMD ATEM TVS successfully for switching multiple GH2's via HDMI and HDMI to SDI BMD battery converters. Works really really well with Livestream's Procaster platform.

    Second vid is now viewable - forgot about my Vimeo defaults. 720 because that's vimeo's default playback rez. Second vid looks fantastic on my iPad. It will intercut perfectly with the 6 other GH2's...

    ^^^I agree the IQ with ETC is fantastic - no complaints whatsoever with me. It's the noise that is simply unavoidable even after de-noising with the Neat Vid plug. If your framing has deep DOF then...

    Using vegas, not PP, so that's not it. Picked up an old Canon 2X TC today from KEH for next to nothing - should be here next week. I'm expecting really good results from this route compared to ETC.

    thanks for the conversation everyone. the vimeo compression actually helps smooth out the artifacting so it's even less noticeable. i think it would be too difficult to intercut this with crisp...

    Ran a quick test today to determine the viability of ETC mode @ 1080P/30 vs a teleconverter for greater reach. Optically, this looks very good but the...

    Eclipse Sensor Swabs work great for cleaning the GHx sensors. My son got a hold of one of my bodies and plopped a nice fingerprint right on the sensor. Took several swabs to get it cleaned off, but...

    That's what HBR does in firmware v1.1 in an NTSC GH2 - gives you 24Mb/s 1920x1080/30P. I use it for all web-destined work and it's perfect.

    Agreed - I use our's on every shoot. Super piece of pro gear that behaves exactly as expected, except for the headphone monitor output which is pretty sucky. But if you get your audio to sound good...

    Nice - the GH2 with that zoom makes the GoPro stuff look like blob'ish crap (granted that is not the best focal point use for a GoPro). Superior optics are superior for a reason, lol. It looks like...

    The Oly Zuiko 14-35/2 behaves exactly the same way. There is one spot in the zoom range that the aperture physically changes - you can see it and hear it. I've learned to mostly work around it.

    It's not a fixed aperture zoom - it's 1.6 to 3.2. If you were filming indoors, then i could see your point. But outdoors, the absence of constant aperture should be a moot point. I know in broad...
