Writing Rough Guide to DSLR, what do you think
on Jun 23, 2011 at 11:35:45 am

Hi. Writing a beginners guide to DSLR video, draft is up at http://www.icontactvideo.org/rought-guide_dslr_video. Probably lots of grammar and spelling mistakes (I am dyslexic) but if you can put that aside what do you think. Still a couple of sections to do but mostly there.

All feedback appreciated. I do have a few specific questions.

1) What is the sound recording like on the Panasonic. On the Canon the pre-amps are shocking. It is corporate video level, I assume it and usable for broadcast.
2) is there a max clip length on the Panasonic like there is for the Canon (i.e. 12 mins).
3) What else HDSLRs are worth considering (apart from Panasonic and canon.
4)

Ben

A couple of answers for you:

Audio on the Panasonic GH2 is very usable. I typically run a mic into a JuicedLink DT454 then out into the GH2 for recording. I have the GH2's audio gain on the lowest setting and let the JuicedLink's wonderful preamps do most of the work.

The GH2 has no record time limitation. I ran a 16GB card all the way through ––that's 1.5 hours of video. The camera was barely warm to the touch.
