GH1 very poor video quality
May 4, 2010

One of the great boasts of the GH1 is its 14 - 140mm lens and the fact that it is so good for taking movies. Well I've tried various times over the last few weeks and been very disappointed with its AVCHD format and the alternative. I've a little Panny FX150 and although it can't zoom it takes delightful clear movies. The GH1 however can zoom in and out but (excuse the lack of technical knowledge that means I use amateurish words) any sudden movements make horrible patterns or smudging.
Perhaps my technique is inadequate or there is something I am missing?

The long and the short of all this is that I feel like just going out with my Canon 1000D and shooting with that and taking the FX150 along in case I want to take a movie.

I really feel that I should sell the camera or at least this lens and possibly consider a PEN.
Comments/suggestions very welcome.
