It's just an entirely different beast and I'm very glad I have both because they compliment each other. I shot those 2 kids concert yesterday in 60p and noticed that the picture quality was very good on the stage but when I shoot people in the audience that has far less lighting, it was a bit dark. The GH2 with the 20mm lens combo could have got the audience better. As for the sound, for some reason, I think perhaps my old GH1 sound a little better in a concert although at least their wasn't any static. Granted you're not really supposed to use the camera's mic for concert shooting but still and it's true that it's only this 1 concert that I shot. Me bringing it to their concert was just to see how the camera would perform. I actually do shoot their concerts sometimes and I know the family.
Also, as hard as the GH2 is to hold without any type of stabilizer, I feel good knowing that I can externally adjust the Aperture, Shutter and focusing ring if need be while shooting. The lack of external manual features on the SD600 is very annoying and it's a bit on the small side but because it's in a camcorder form factor, I can zoom better.
I'm currently uploading the segment in which they sang Bruno Mars's "Count on Me"
It''ll be a native file directly off the card. I might change my mind and skip that clip since they got a good one on their site although this SD600 version has the regular drums and guitar.
Here's their page in case someone wants to see other videos of them.http://www.youtube.com/user/MichaelandMarisa#g/u
Speaking of the clips I already uploaded, to be fair, I was panning very fast and I did say I wasn't used to holding the camera that well when I shot that. That was just for fun.
