Fourth in the Hacked GH2 Tutorial Series. In this episode we start with the footage loaded and ready to test with the streamparser software. This software will tell us that the footage has recorded at the correct bitrate, and has all red frames which represent I-frames (GOP 1) which makes this essentially a CBR Intraframe AVCHD codec. Very impressive for a $600 camera. Following this we have information on the ISO Bug which affects ISO 320 and 640 and can be countered by setting a higher ISO and returning back downward. This segment was recorded in true anamorphic which I will talk about in a later video. The video ends with using Kelvin for white balancing.

The GH2 is quite upset.

Nikon D4 – Capable of 2,464 × 1,384 at 24fps?

The new Nikon D4 has a 2.5 Megapixel burst mode at 24fps. The question now is, what is the
“Max Continuous Burst” on this camera. Most Nikons seem to be limited to 100. But if this were increased 100 fold, you could have bursts of individual still frames lasting for several minutes at a quality that would completely obliterate any other competing video modes. IF you’ve tested this mode and know its limits, let someone know. With all the sites getting these cameras for testing, no one has tried out this mode yet.
