    Who says the GH1 is not ready for prime time?

    OK, sorry for the provocative title. I'm just so thrilled with what the GH1 has given me for my latest short film. Here's a teaser trailer for it:

    Even though I've had to deal with color shifting, artifacts in shadows, rolling shutter, fluorescent flicker...they don't bother me compared to the other aspects of image quality the camera delivers. I couldn't be happier with how this short film has turned out. The GH1 was the best money I ever spent!

    You got some really nice shots in that trailer - very impressive and sharp. Man, I can't wait til my project begins in January - GH1 all the way w/Canon & Zeiss primes.

    There's something wonderful about the "look" that the GH1 delivers with good quality prime lenses when you know what you are doing.

    I feel like there's nowhere you could show a project like this and in any way feel like you'd have to explain away the image quality...the GH1 really gets out of your way and lets your talent speak for itself, if you've got it.

    The GH1 has given us a very low cost way to move beyond the point that an audience would *notice* the image quality as being something short of what a larger budget production would have, which is a tremendous thing when doing narrative work - it lets the production be much more transparent, critical for narrative work...and a game-changer for low-budget indie film making.

          Your film says loud and clear it is ready for prime time. Great work. Just added to my channel!

            wow!
            I know how to do it. You just wouldn't know it from the way that I do it.

              Thanks all.
              Thisisapocalypse: I couldn't have said it better myself. It certainly makes me walk taller to see what I'm capable of given tools that approach movie theater quality images. It's an exciting time to be a filmmaker, at least as far as the affordability of the tools.

                  Todd, congratulations, that looks fantastic.

                  I noticed the rolling shutter just once and I bet only HD-DSLR users/geeks might notice that shot, 99% of ordinary viewers will never notice it.

                    Looks good Todd!

                    I drove down Ward Parkway this morning (sped up driving shot)

                      Holy crap! Awesome! This will certainly put lid on all pixelw*nkers that claim GH1 isn't good enough.

                      To answer the question: I can't say GH1 is not ready for prime time as I currently got two commercials airing with GH1 footage - one fully made with GH1, one with a clip cut between 35 mm footage.

                      Forgot to say you should add this one to the HDSLR Screening Room here:

                      And if you just paste the Vimeo video number, highlight it and in Advance posting mode click the Vimeo icon you have it embedded right in the post!

                          Fantastic! You see, 1080p on the GH1 rocks! That is the way to go. It looks great.

                          Of course, it has the Panasonic "mojo"!

                            Looks great! I thought it also sounded very nice too.
