I'm really considering adding a second camera to my kit bag, since I've found event shooting to be a pain with only one camera (or rather, one decent camera and one that can't keep up).
I'm looking at the GH1 for it's DOF capabilities (which add that nice artistic flare to music videos, closeups on short films and cinematic shots on wedding videos), it's 1080p capabilities and the fact that I can hack it. Now, I've read some horror stories by fellow members about this camera... but I want to hear it from actual owners: Does the footage stand up with footage from the HV series? I'll be using both to their fullest potential, I need to know if they will happily compliment each other with little-to-no-trouble.
On the other hand, I'm thinking about grabbing myself another HV (although prices are way out of my range -$1000-, and I can pick up A GH1 for under $700AU). I have a HV30 already, so I know what to expect.
Lay it out straight for me. I really need to know before I set my heart on it.
