Is the GH2 the Ultimate Hybrid camera?
Mar 6, 2012

Is the GH2 the Ultimate Hybrid camera? I think that the fact that the GH2 can take high quality 1920x1080 stills during super high quality high bit rate(When hacked) video makes it the single best hybrid camera available today.

I shot the video below of my sons Nationals climbing competition. I also shot simultaneous stills throughout the videos. I shot 720p @ 60 FPS for most of the shots because I wanted to do slow motion. However, some of the shots are 1080p @ 30 FPS. You probably can't see any difference in detail though.

All of these clips were shot with the no adverse affects hack settings. I shot about 3 hours of footage in 1-2 minute increments without any failures.
