Difference video quality gh1 and epl1
Jul 24, 2010

As my GH1 has gone down (I still hope it can be repaired) I am putting my focus on the EPL1 picture quality wise.

As I am am a fervent video maker I would like to know if there is a big difference in video quality between the GH1 and the olympus EPL1
Any advice would be welcome.

Thanks

I have a Pen and love it for its image quality. It's video capability is quite good. But if your main focus is video, I would go for the GH1 since it can do 1080p and can be hacked for even better video quality.

with the ptool hack, there is just no comparison. both the panasonic gh1 (when shooting at 1080p) and the gf1 (when shooting at 720p) are superior to the olympus. for video, you cant beat the hacked pannys.

I cut a family video using my hacked GH1 (kit lens and 20mm) and a EPL1 (kit lens). Frankly, the difference is huge, and it's pretty obvious which footage comes from which camera. You'll miss the GH1

Hack may not work with new GH1's

dvxuser has several threads one "Cannot update GH1 formware" is very long.

Others in the GH1 firmware threads are also having problems with new cameras. It seems if the camera comes with the latest 1.3 version from the factory it won't allow hack. Worth a wander over there to check it out. It's put me in two minds about getting a GH1 as I no nothing about video. Just fancied a play.
