Both cameras were set almost the same.
F/3.5, focus to infinity, ISO 3200, Frame Rate 60. I forgot to change the white balance though..

The Lumix is the DARKER photo and the Canon is the more Yellow one.

Personally I like the Lumix cause I can get closer but it gives off purple flares in certain lighting; but with the Canon you don't really have to convert the clips.

there sure is better distortion on the Lumix, but I still prefer the rebel cameras because of all of the manual control you have with magic lantern installed.


i just dont like shirtless footy

I agree, I do like that the GH2 has better on board audio though.
But I feel like I want to sell my GH2+fish+14-140 whenever Canon releases the T4i.

dont get your hopes up too much on the t4i, it definitely doesnt look like they will offer anything that vastly improves upon the t2i/t3i/7d/60d.

Well I have a T2i right now and the only other thing, other than the audio, of the GH2 that I like is the flip out screen (but I hate the touch interface) so it being a given the T4i will have a swivel screen I'll just wait for that. I know if I buy a T3i body now, the T4i will get announced or released within a month lol. :goldenwub:

I guess it seems that way but the GH2's higher ISO settings are actually less noisy (until the super high ones, then it just screws with the colors).

It reminds of your peleng vs rokinon comparison.
God speed brave souls

 


You think Nigel went and picked up a vintage zoom lens and now he's killing the game. Yeah right. This dude has some of the worst DSLR stuff on youtube.

you mean the GH2/rokinon has distortion, and the T2i/rokinon lacks it. also no, surprisingly the GH2 handles noise much better than the T2i

maybe the case, but they appear to be the same width. and maybe it handles noise better but m4/3 is known to not have as good low light as aps-c

Clearly the GH2 is wider horizontally but it like a millimeter less wide vertically in the center.

nah the 7.5mm is clearly wider, and the distortion is much nicer than the flat UWAish look of the 8mm. the peleng is ~30% wider than the 8mm IIRC, so i wonder if it's even wider than the 7.5mm...

also i used to have a 550D, the GH2 trumps it in low lighting, hands down. the canon might be able to make a brighter picture at high ISOs, but whats the point if its terribly noisy?

You guys are trippin'... The GH2 completely kills the t2i, fisheye wise.

I currently own both setups, and I have to say, the GH2 is extremely awkward to use. I love that camera, but the thing is just so weird.

and i only let 2 kids film fisheye cause one used to film and the other is super atrsy and he knows what looks good. my filmer footy actually comes out pretty good.



koston is the osiris of es. he wont leave it, i betcha. es for life for koston, pretty sure.

I realize this is from forever ago but I don't see why wider (horizontally) is better for 16:9 footy? Sure you get more of the barrel distortion, so you get more in frame on the horizontal axis, but you're still getting the same vertical height. 

No gain in vertical height + extra horizontal width = more empty/wasted frame space.

Just my opinion though, haven't filmed skating in a while but I feel like the whole compare dick sizes and see who's lens is wider argument is more geared to the people still filming with vx's.

 

is the gh2 hacked

Nope.
