GF2 disappoints
Feb 21, 2011

Had it a week now. Photo wise not disappointed. But I am a MAC user. None of the software except SilkyPix (their RAW handler) is MAC compat. This means if you take video at the best AVCHD you can only view it by hooking up to TV with RCA cable supplied. There is a micro HDMI on the camera (No cable supplied) which I have yet to try once I get a cable.

I can import the video (Once you realise it's in a Private folder & is a BMD file whatever that is.) into iMovie 11 with limited editing. Even Graphic Convertor doesn't recognize it.

I have a Panasonic TV 3 years old with SD card built in. It doesn't see the video either.

So the camera is all I expected for photography but a pain for Video. Oh did I tell you it will shoot in MJPEG but you need a Class 6 Sd Card !!
