Okay, I've honestly posted a couple questions already about this, but I figured I'd just kind of go through what I'm looking for and see what people think. I want a camera that's great at video for around the $300 price point. I want a camera system and NOT a camcorder because I really want a high aperture lense for bokeh. I started looking at Canon because I use a Nikon and hate the autofocus during video (I need autofocus, as I film myself). I then began hearing that mirrorless are far...
Having purchased a used Lumix GH2 without software and wanting to use it primarily for video, what software would you recommend as a good starter and possibly to use for additional newer Lumix models in the near future? I am a seasoned still photographer but know little about video. Thanks, if you can help.

Question in title. My first run got me 33 minutes as so: Room temperature, Third-party cheapo grip (ergo slightly raised off the ground) USB power in from a wall charger AVCHD 24p with whatever the max bitrate is for that EDIT: Damnit, it had AF-C on. That is probably contributing. It's hard to remember that your wheel has to be all the way to M in order for video not to default to AF-C. Shortly after it overheated at the 33-minute mark, and under the same conditions, I got just under five...
Hello, I'm looking for a good under $150 steadicam for GH2 which is a pretty light camera (around 400 grams). I'd pair it with Panasonic 14mm pancake lens which weighs like 55 grams. I've searched a lot on the internet but apparently people had the best results with modded Tiffen Steadicam Smoothee. Problem is just that, I don't want to mod a product to get a good result, I want a good stabilizer that will work very well with a light camera like GH2 out of the box. Does anyone know for a good...
Does anyone actually have a DC coupler for their G85? The documentation calls for model DMW-DCC8 but no one appears to stock it and it is listed as for use with the GH2 which uses a different model AC adapter (the DMW-AC8 versus the DMW-AC10PP called out for the G85). I tried one third party brand from Amazon but it didn't fit the AC adapter. And ordering direct from Panasonic shows the the adapter with no ETA for shipment. Any thoughts? Thanks!
Had the camera a while, but spending more time with it recently makes me realize that there's a lot more to it that I should know. The OEM manual on my iPad only goes so far. Can anyone recommend a decent 3rd party guide for the GH3? (I've found guides for the GH2 and the GH4 - nothing on the GH3). Thanks!

My Panasonic GH1 and GH2 are both noticeably noisier on stills than my Canon 650D, to the extent that I only use them for video now. (see 100% crops picture below, with some auto-levels to enhance the noise) It's mostly colour noise (blobs or red and green) but there are nasty textures too. My test shots were at ISO 160 at highest quality JPEG (the noise is the same in RAW) The GH2 is hacked for long-shooting video, but that shouldn't have an effect on the stills quality should it? Any...

I'm looking for other people opinions. Years ago I used to own the GF2 camera and I liked it a lot. When the camera was first released it didn't have the latest camera technology from Panasonic, instead the new camera was still using the 12-megapixel sensor. Months later the G3 came out later with another 16-megapixel sensor from Panasonic and prior to the GF2 release we had the GH2. However, what I loved about the GF2 was it form factor and how well it worked with prime lenses especially...
