Kauai sunset: LUMIX GH1 slow motion

Nice discovery…If you shoot in 720p mode, not full HD, with the Lumix you go into 50p mode. This is useful as it means you can record slow motion if you reconform to 25p in cinema tools. Click here for a short tutorial on how to do it. I was out with my client, Jimit […]
