    TEMPORARY: ALL QUESTIONS RELATED TO THE GH2 HACK PROCESS GO HERE. DO NOT POST YOUR OWN TOPIC. REFER TO PERSONAL-VIEW.COM FOR MORE IN-DEPTH INFORMATION.

    Beginner Questions and Answers: http://www.personal-view.com/talks/d...nner-questions

    Collection of Hacks/Patches RIGHT HERE:
    http://www.personal-view.com/talks/d...s-in-one-place

    Very Simple Guide on how to do it (At your own risk!): http://www.sam-mallery.com/2011/11/a...panasonic-gh2/

    GH2 Hack FAQ and more (has succinct and great explanations of things, like ETC mode etc):
    http://www.personal-view.com/faqs/

    Just like the thread title says. Ask a non subjective question about the Gh2 hack and I will answer it with the best of my knowledge. If I can't, I will have someone else chime in. This is not a "what is the best hack for my camera" thread. This is meant for direct and concise questions.

    Example:
    Question: What is the ptool?
    Answer: The ptool is the program the creator of the Gh1 hack created to allow you to manipulate certain aspects of the camera's settings. I.E. The bitrate, the frame rate, the PAL 30 min limitation and so forth.

    If you ask me "what the best anything" is, I reserve the right to ignore you and kick your dog. For 24 hours only. And maybe a few minutes thereafter. No chit chat either. If you have a comment, save it for another thread. If you see I've made an error in my answer, PM me. And...go....

    I have one, or two:

    1. Do I remember right, that even mjpeg is 4:2:0 on the GH2?
    2. As with GH1 there´s no chance of ever getting a 24p or 25p mjpeg going? Not even on 720p?

    Thanks!
    shooting on GH1(3) and GH2vk with:

    Minolta MD Rokkors: 28mm 2.8, 35mm 2.8, 45mm 2.0, 50mm 1.4, 135mm 3,5
    Others: Panasonic AG-LA7200, Panasonic 20mm 1.7, Panasonic 14-42mm 3.5, Tokina 70-150 3.5

    does high ISO require high bit rate? Can you get useable results from stock rate, or reasonably low hack rates for stuff like wedding receptions.

    Do hacks alter skin tones differently and if so which patch has the best skin tones for 720p 60

    Is it true that if you hack your gh2 it will get you laid?

    In terms of working with the hacks up until now, aside from spanning and overcranking, is there any other reason to go with the current top card, Sandisk 64Gb 95Mb/s? Would a Sandisk class 10 (30Mb/s) be largely sufficient for the extremely high bit rate hacks like Seaquake otherwise?

    Yes.

    MJEPG 4:2:2 has strange bugs starting from G2.

    2. As with GH1 there´s no chance of ever getting a 24p or 25p mjpeg going? Not even on 720p?

    Why not?

    But it is very hard due to the fact that all encoders, and video setup are specifically tuned to only specific modes.

    >does high ISO require high bit rate? Can you get useable results from stock rate, or reasonably low hack rates for stuff like wedding receptions.

    High bitrate saves your noise from smearing and making the mess. So, you could work with it later.

    >Do hacks alter skin tones differently and if so which patch has the best skin tones for 720p 60

    Hacks do not touch color modes. yet.

    >is there any other reason to go with the current top card, Sandisk 64Gb 95Mb/s?

    Main reason is to be absolutely sure in spanning and no errors.

    If you on paid job such card will pay

    Can hacked files be played (pre-viewed) directly from the card on a blu ray player the way regular files can?
