Re: G5 Video: Full manual controls(!), 1080p60, 28mbps. Potential implications for GH

I tested the G5 today and there doesn't appear to be manual control in video mode.

If you use a manual lens you can have manual aperture on the mechanical ring.

If you set flicker reduction to ON you can select a set shutter speed such as 1/50.

But the camera will always vary exposure by adjusting ISO in the middle of a shot which is not good at all! And of course with Micro Four Thirds lenses, you won't be able to override the aperture either.

Wait for the GH3 video guys...
