Paulo, what's your status on your GH2 arrival?
On the original Vimeo posting he posted:
With Panasonic Lumix GH2
Mostly with 14-140 lens. The 7-14 Lumix lens in the cave.

Yes, it is a GH2 camera. I was testing a pre-production model and they are not available yet.
I shot at 24P in what they call “cinema mode”. Usually I shot in shutter priority mode setting the shutter speed at 1/50th of a second. I let the aperture change automatically and let the ISO change automatically if necessary. Often I had it in manual mode such as the scene going under the bridge in the boat or driving along the coast with the sun flashing behind the trees. There are two clips looking toward the rear of the speeding boat. The first was shot at 1/800th second and the next clip is 1/50th of a second. (These comments refer to the Michigan pictures).
Regarding recording time: Basically it is only limited by the size of the SD card. It changes depending on whether you are shooting 24p, 50i, PAL, or NTSC, etc. But in Europe, for legal reasons, because the camera shoots to HD specifications a special tax is required. Therefore, in Europe, it is limited to 30 minutes. I think the U.S. versions can go much longer. Yes, strange.
Some people are experiencing bad stuttering. I think this is caused by low internet speeds or inadequate graphics cards. Full HD is really pushing computer systems.
