GH1 firmware research volunteers required

Found interesting consequence of sensor patch.
Manual zoom enlargement do not work (weird picture).
Looks like they use high resolution of RAW data in this mode.
Funny.
 
Hi tester13,

One question about new sensor patch. If I'm not wrong, previous 1080p tests were result of scaling a lower resolution image. With this new sensor patch, source image is same resolution as in AVCHD FHD? It is "true" 1080p?

Thanks,

You can set sensor output to be same as in all AVCHD modes.
But serious and systematic tests are required.
Including resolution tests.
As RAW resolution must be good even in 30fps mode.

P.S. Anyone noticed that we have special FHD icon for MJPEG in playback mode? :)

Can you clarify a bit more on 1080P? Is it an actual 1080 or upscaled from 720? I suppose if it looks good it doesn't even matter.

So far the 720 is looking amazing. The 1080 grabs I've seen do look that much more resolute coming straight out of camera.

I suppose this should make testing PL glass a bit more fun.
 
Testing new ptool: :bath:

MJPEG sensor mode:

6 - 50p working well (focus assistant can't work)

8 - 25p working well (focus assistant can't work)

I don't see any difference for old mode.

PS: Please guys who can see difference at this pach, test it (it's not risky).

One question, if you switch to AVCHD, focus assistant works?
Or in other words, can this be a workaround for focusing;
1 - Enable AVCHD and focus.
2 - Then enable MJPEG and record.
3 - Stop recording
4 - Go to step 1
 
No, focus assistant can't work on all camera modes. It's no good, because focus assistance very important for manual lens.

We need really systematic tests.
Words "don't see any difference" are not enough.
You must shoot smooth pans.
Or some falling objects.
So skipped frames can be seen clearly (and please, do not touch quality patches!).
On my small test footage I do not see skipped frames on 1920p24, but I can be wrong.

Please, be patient.
Of course it don't work in all modes as we change mode inside sensor setup procedure.
With time we'll be able to change it on much higher level.
 
Very interesting thing.

When you recording in AVCHD mode - TV out show brown color screen. :)

PS: All right I'm testing afresh this modes ;)

Guys something strange happening with my camera and new patch....
I applied num 7 23,976 sensor output and mjpeg resize to 1080...
My camera stops recording after 1 sec , but after that when I restarted the camera LCD behave strange. And I can't go to play mode any more... so I can't rollback to previous firmware...
Tester please HELP ... I think I broke my GH1....

Can the 24fps patch be applied to the 720P as well, and does the zoom feature not work with this too.

Does the 1080 30p patch mode also not have the zoom feature as well?


.
 
I applied Width and buffer.... But I increase bitrate for mjpeg. So it's possible that bitrate causing the problem...
Howevar I formated my card and now I can go to play mode...
So no problem for now ...
Sorry...

It looks that we still have frame skipping (in 24fps mode), but screen looks quite weird even during smooth pans as 24fps.
It can mean only that MJPEG is actually 60fps mode and not patched 30fps mode.
So 50fps and 60fps must be also tested.
