This report tells that there is no power zoom for video. That's what I call a challange. While holding the cam with one hand, manually zooming with the other hand on a barrel. And all this without a tripod. Yeah baby ...

I think there is a good reason why video equipment looks differently and works differently than still camera equipment.

GH1 will probably deliver good quality video but that makes it in no way a 100% replacement for a true video cam.

just my 2 euro-cent
