I’ve been testing multiple GH2 settings for weeks, and I’ve wanted to reach the highest stable bitrate. I think 132mb GOP 3 is going to be fairly close to that for the time being. I’m no AVC expert, certainly someone who is will come up with the penultimate hacked GH2 settings in the next few months, like lpowell did with the GH13.
To get started with these settings, you’re first going to need one of these cards
Be certain to get one of the Extreme Pro cards, anything less will crash. The only other option is a Kingston Extreme XX card. In terms of sequential writes, both cards are very similar in writing performance, however the Kingston cards are more expensive and have faster reading speeds.
Going back to October 2009, I released a recommended zoom list for the Canon 7D. Here is the 2010 Update for all of the Canon crop cameras
Tokina 11-16 f/2.8 AT-X 116 Pro DX Why: Still the best wide-angle constant aperture zoom lens Why not: Hard to find in EOS Mount
Tamron 17-50 VC f/2.8 XR Di-II VC LD Aspherical (IF) Why: Great Price with rebate right now, not limited by EF-S mount for future camera use (reason why Canon 17-55 is not recommended, though it is a better lens) Why not: Varying build quality from lens to lens Alternate: Purchase without VC to save a few dollars
Sigma 50-150mm f/2.8 II EX DC HSM Lens Why: Lens is just as sharp as 70-200 for video, great price for a 2.8 constant aperture telephoto zoom lens Why not: No Image stabilization
Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM Why: Classic lens that has been superseded by the newest version of the 70-200. IS works very well. EOS mount means that you wont be limited by camera body choice in the future Why not: Expensive for just video purposes
Maybe we will have a few more choices next year, but for this year, the picks remain the same. When the next next 5D has a crop mode, you will be thanking me that you didn’t purchase any Canon native EF-S lenses, as the lenses above will all work perfectly on a cropped full frame sensor. …
