I sold the GH2 though, so what does that tell you? Extreme sharpness and detail aren't the only keys to making good video.
Absolutely couldn't disagree with you more Shield. I've shown it to two other people, one of whom thought it was a 'trick question' since the disparity was that great.
Remember I'm talking about viewing on a 60" Elite where differences are easier to spot. The GH2 is noisy and has quite a bit of edge enhancement that makes some think there's detail that's there that's not. It's an old trick used by display manufacturers and camera makers. The Sony, despite the smoother picture, has obviously more detail than the GH2.
Trust me Shield, I'm not making this up, the results are what they are. At any rate I'll upload two of those clips I just shot with both cams.
I've always noticed, no matter what HD camera I've used (including large 3-chip prosumer HD cams), the video always looks so much better on a good quality HDTV. I've seen some video that looks 'fuzzy' on the computer but on the TV it's razor sharp. I'm not just talking about the GH2 vs the NEX7, but all HD video.
Hey, one thing we can all agree on, these tools are great!
