I'm picking up a GH1 to use for 720 p60.
video shoot studio,indoor & outdoor, some live action. Primarily for
the DOF and ISO capabilities.
would like to ask anyone using this Camera, what they recomend for additional lenses and some reasonably priced solution (lenses and adapters).I want to get lenses that I can move on to the next body in 12 month or so.
I have been on the move shooting a behind the scene for a Superbowl spot, producing web video for the SuperBowl spot, an Agency Reel and in the studio since I first posted and now have a moment (5 minutes) to respond before hitting the sack, then another 48hrs of editorial...
I have recently put 20hrs + on this Lumix GH1(Panasoinc) HDSLR rig and
found working with the kit 14-140 zoom to be ok but a bit slow at f4.
I ended up dropping some bucks on Zeiss ZF series Primes, I bought
a ZF 50mm f1.4 Planar and the ZF 85mm f 1.4 Tele Planar, beautiful glass, beautiful DOF. I also picked up a Nikon 24mm f2.8 MF, and will
be picking up a 35mm T2 Prime.
From my brief experience shooting video with this camera,I have found it really perform well in all manual modes, Manual Focus and exposure. That means not auto stabilization (OIS), therefore a decent stablization and mounting system is imperative not to mention sticks. I picked up a HOTROD Delixe mount and stabilization system which is geared toward the GH1 and also has a PL mount so If you can afford it you can mount Cine Primes,(that's right Arri super35 Master Primes and others). Zeiss has a hole new line of awesome Mini Primes for Red and HDSLR. There my short report on Lenses and the GH1.
Thank you so much and I apologize for not getting back sooner, now I'm going sleep for a couple of hours.
