Here is my first preliminary test comparing the hacked GH2 vs the GH1. The GH2 was using the following settings
720p SH mode
This is not a recommended setting, but has been working just fine for me producing 720p footage with average bitrates over 40mb a second with out causing any errors on PNY cards.
Just a slightly higher bitrate than Vitality’s recommended settings. Again, Vitality is stressing not to mess with the GOP right now, as I did with 720p, so do so at your own risk.
The GH1 was using lpowell’s 75mb high reliability patch
Both cameras used the same lens, same f-stop WB kelvin and shutter settings. The GH1 was used at 100iso and the GH2 at 160iso accounting for the difference in ISO ratings between the cameras.
Vitality announced on his website today that he is able to downgrade unhackable gh1s to version 1.32. This will allow any GH1 to run the GH13 bitrate and battery patches!
Hurry up and buy a body for $399 before they disappear!

So in this second test with the new lpowell patch for Vitality’s GH1 Hack, we test Color, Dynamic Range and Fine Detail without overloading the codec on the GH1 to the point of crashing, but at the same time have a full range of light to compare the two cameras. Both were at their lowest ISOs which provides the most amount of Dynamic Range. At the same time both cameras used the Smooth Profile.
In this video we have an absolute direct comparison to the latest lpowell patch for the GH1 vs the Gh2 at 1080p 24.
Quick notes: GH2 still has the upper hand in color reproduction and absolute resolution, but this is as close as a hacked GH1 can get to a GH2.
Here’s a quick little vlog testing the differences between the GH1 and GH2 (exact same settings) at ISO 1600 and 3200 respectively.
The GH2 has come quite a ways forward from the GH1 in terms of processing high ISO video.
Thanks to the youtube “Original” quality mode, you can now enjoy anamorphic videos like the one below in super high resolution, higher than any other online streaming site. While the quality is not as good as looking at the raw files, it certainly makes for a whole new online viewing experience.
This video was shot during the testing of our LA7200 adapter in preparation for a new anamorphic lens tutorial series.
What do you get when you shoot a golf ball over 400MPH? Pure Win is the only correct answer.
We wanted to try something new, something that has never been done before in the history of the internets. We made an interactive Cannon video, allowing you to shoot the heads off 3 famous youtubers. Well, one is only slightly famous, but since he decided to drop his sub box sharing, and not let us know, Onision joined the ranks of the headless horde.
This video was shot with the hacked GH1 at 24fps and 60fps and a Canon 7D at 1080p 24fps. Unsurprisingly, most people enjoy shooting Fred the most. Whatever stops that high-pitched whine right?
Following the success of the original iPhone commercial released in August 2009, we created a new spot based on all of the features that are available with jailbreaking the new iPhone 4. This includes using “Display Out” and the variable functionality of BT Stack to use Bluetooth devices like Wiimotes and keyboards to extend features that are not implemented well with just a touch screen. Another objective of the spot was to give light to the iPhodroid project witch allows android to run on the 3G, and can currently be used to hack PS3′s with version 3.41 firmware. Akira created a hilarious “iPhone” song for the commercial and impersonated the voice of Morgan Freeman to lend a familiar tone to the spec commercial.
